This satchel is in a plastic coated cotton and similar to ones I have seen in Cath Kidston and Accessorize. The difference being the price! The skull and rose design is one which I have other items in and is good because not everyone likes the floral look! The satchel is a good size and has plenty of pockets inside and outside - 2 on each side, 2 on the front under the flap (which closes with a magnetic fastening), muliple pockets on the inside with a divider for the 2 large ones and a back zip pocket. There is also a zip closure over the main pockets under the flap but this doesn't go right from the edges. The long strap is adjustable for wearing across the body. I was very surprised that the bag even arrived in its own dust bag! The only thing I would say that I wasn't too keen on was that the lining is of a very pale coloured satin which I felt might be easily ripped and stained and would have preferred to see perhaps a dark coloured tougher cotton instead which would also tone in with the bag.
All in all though I was very pleased with the quality, size and price of this bag and am very tempted to buy more for presents as I think most folk would be delighted with it.
