First of all, I'm SO excited JA is doing handbags. I chose this as an everyday bag that would be versatile and practical, but also chic. The design is very thoughtful, with plenty of fun little touches inside and out. I like the coated canvas and the canvas inside with clever screenprinted designs showing where your keys, phone etc go. I like the leather handles, strap and trim. The quality overall is great - the only thing that bugs me is that the handles' hardware "clinks" in a way that doesn't feel top quality. I love the shoulder strap, and often sling it diagonally with the bag in front while I'm walking or shopping, so it's easy to reach into. I do wish the magnet part that holds the bag together would be a smidge wider, to hold it together better, as sometimes it hangs open. This was my first non-pottery JA purchase and I'm thinking now about a wallet.
- I recommend this product.
