extremely useful review
The design on the front of this tote is beautiful. It is mostly black and gray with a tree blossoming with pretty pink flowers. A couple of doves add to the beauty. The following quote by Helen Keller graces the front.

"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart."

The picture taken from my phone doesn't do it justice, but it gives the basic idea. The colors are much brighter.



More pink flowers adorn the sides of the bag. On the back are a couple of more flowers and the familiar pink breast cancer ribbon. $1 from the sale of each bag will be donated to breast cancer research. So that is cool.

Like many tote bags, this is made from nonwoven material that feels like plastic. It is very shiny and noisy when scratched. The front and inside of the bag can be easily wiped if soiled. It folds down when not in use. It has 2 wide fabric handles. They are securely sewn on and shouldn't come loose. It has a small pocket sewn on the back. The pocket doesn't open very wide, but it's large enough for a phone.

It is a small tote bag. The front panel is 12 inches high by 10 inches wide. It opens to about a 4.5 inch width. It's not really large enough to use at the grocery store or the beach. Here is a comparison picture with Eden Fantasys tote bag. As you can tell the Eden bag is much larger and suitable for more things.



The bag has a couple of flaws. There are numerous stray threads. The worst is on the inside where the pocket is sewn on. There's a long string cutting across the diagonal. Also the side creases were folded in such a way that the front and back panel do not line up correctly. At the top it is off by a good inch. That only effects the looks of the bag not the function.
Experience
I was hoping to be able to add some class to my motley group of reusable grocery bags. Unfortunately it is not big enough to use for grocery shopping. It will not be hard to come up with alternate uses for it. It would be perfect for carrying a few books around. I don't mean textbooks. It isn't heavy duty enough to become a school book bag. It would be great for a few paperbacks and maybe a snack to take to the park or beach.

I could also use it at home for storage. It's pretty enough to sit on a shelf or hang on a hook while organizing some of my stuff. I may even use it as a gift bag. It would be pretty wrapping for my mom's Mother's Day Gift.
Follow-up commentary
This bag hangs on a hook in my room and adds to the decor. I love the design, and it's useful when I need to transport just a few items. It usually gets a couple of comments. It's a handy bag to have around.

    Great review. I got one for a review item so was hoping that they are still able to get them. I would buy them for gifts just because they give to the cause.
