I purchased 2 of these, then drew on them with permanent markers to create low-budget personalised Christmas gifts.
The bags are narrow (essentially being two sheets of material sewn together), rather than having a flat base like the larger ones available in supermarkets. Would be good for books/files or light shopping, may not accommodate heavy groceries (e.g. milk) quite so well.
Handles are the same material and colours as the bags (doubled over and sewn well) and seem sturdy. Stitching around where one handle joined the bag was slightly uneven and layered on one of mine, other one was fine.
Very good quality for its price, is ideal for school, i use it for school and everyone loves it! If your looking for a cheap shoulder bag, for shoping, school, collage anything, this is the one for you!!
