Not Quite Sexy, But Fairly Smart

If you like tote bags, this is a fair one to add to any tote collection. It'll easily hold up to a lot of abuse and can be used for literally anything you might want to carry that can fit in a bag. The only real down side is that you may not want to advertise where you buy your naughty things, but in that case, just use it to hold stuff at home!

Do you like EdenFantasys? Do you also carry things? Why not combine those two things with this tote bag!

The bag itself is pretty large. At first glance, it does look cheap. At least that's what I think when I look at it; folded up or out on display. The closest I can find to a materials list is "nonwoven fabric," and I have no idea what exactly that entails. What I can tell you however, is that it's got a not cloth feel to it. I can't describe that much better, try as I might. Touching this bag reminds me of thicker waterproof liners that you might find inside of things like wine carriers or lunch bags. It all looks like one piece of material folded over at the top to make a hem. You know the cheap material a lot of the fabric shopping bags are made of? That's what the handles and the trim along the side edges feel like.

While the tote does look and feel cheap, it does still seem to be surprisingly well constructed. It's not going to last forever by any means, but it should last a semester of notebook carrying or a few months of grocery carrying. The handles are sewn to the bag at the top and bottom of the hem along the top of the bag. But only along the top and bottom; the sides are wide open and will probably be what fails first on the tote.

Mine came folded into quarters and I store them that way, folded all the way down to about an 8" square. When unfurled, the bag is much larger than that. It stands about 15" tall and about 15 1/2" wide. The folded seams on the side let it open up to add about 4" to that total rectangle; at the bottom at least. The top will spread out a lot more if need be. The handles come up an additional foot, giving you plenty of room to grab onto as well.

Both sides are printed with a design. One side is mostly the EdenFantasys' "e" leaf along with the website, and the other side says "edenfantasys, sexy & smart" and has both the Twitter and Facebook handles of @edenfantasys. If you're worried about people knowing where the bag came from, I'd pick another bag.

Along with the lack of materials, there's also a lack of cleaning instructions. For the outside, it's pretty straight forward; wipe it down with a damp cloth. I'd imagine you could do the same for the inside, depending on what you spill in there.

Overall, it's a decent tote bag. It's a lot bigger than a lot of reusable grocery bags are, and even a lot of book bags. It folds down to a manageable and stackable size that's easy to just tuck away until you need it again. It's not going to last forever, but at 2 bucks a pop, it's not going to break the bank to replace either.

I've got a few pictures here to try and show you some scale against a fairly standard metal folding chair:

Experience
I somehow managed to get one of these in canvas a long time ago, and honestly, I would prefer the canvas bags. However, all personal preferences aside, I still like these for certain things. I ended up with a whole bunch of them somehow, and now my friends have sweet tote bags too! All in all, these bags should last you a fair amount of time so long as you don't mind anybody knowing where they came from.

    Glad you included pictures of the inside, and compared it to the inside of a lunchbag as far as material. That was the one sentence that most helped me understand the fabric!
