My mum bought be this bag for school and it is wonderful! The laminate material will surely be lasting a long time and there are many little pockets. It seems very spacious inside and the strap extends to very long and is elasticated. As for the pattern, it is just like having a Cath Kidston bag! Brilliant bag and quality for the price!I can fit lots of A4 books in there, as well as a watercolour set, lunchbox, pencil case and exam pencil case and there is still room for more books!
