Rated 5 out of 5 by islandgirl1956 I love it!
I am really glad that I ordered this bag. The color is just as shown in the catalog, the size is perfect and the embroidery is really more impressive than the picture shows. The price was definitely worth it. Thank you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GoingCoastal1 Very Nice
This is a very nice large tote. The inside is also weatherproofed, so great for the beach. We used it while traveling, if it is filled with heavy stuff, the handles are little uncomfortable.
Glad we bought it! Highly recommend!

I love this icon tote. I initially purchased it to put a gift inside and ended up keeping it for myself! It is sturdy, and the seams and handle are well engineered into the tote.

The bag is so much better than I expected! Well made and stylish!~ I gave them away as Christmas gifts to coworkers and filled with bath and body lotions! We live in a coastal area, so we all go through a lot of these tote bags during season, with houseguests! Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Darlyn My absolute go-to tote bag!
I love this tote bag. It's nice and large so I can shop at the farmers markets with ease. It holds all my fruits and vegetables and then some all in one bag. I have been stopped numerous times by people asking and giving compliments about this tote bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LotsaBallard Cashiers love these bags!
I have several of these bags I keep in my car for groceries
and shopping. Without fail, every time I check out at a store the cashier remarks how much she loves the bags
and where did I get them? I've given many away as gifts.
They have replaced the plastic bags I was accumulating and
they also make it so easy to bring in groceries in just one or
two bags. They are very strong. I received my first one
as a complimentary gift at a Ballard store, and I had no idea
then how much I was going to enjoy them.

I purchased this tote as a gift and was tempted to keep it for myself. Much larger than it looks in photo, well made and beautiful detail in the design.

I love this bag, have traveled with it as my carry-on to several countries and weekend jaunts. It fits well enough under the seat of the plane, too. This bag has held up so well and is strong, I have given a couple as gifts.

by Katchan Originally happy until...
I bought a few of these to give as future presents, but when I went to use one of them to give as part of a birthday present, I was really upset to find out most of them were stained, especially the light colored aqua and sand ones...
Also some of the weaving is uneven and looks loose, it doesn't look pretty at all. I'm trying to remove the stain now but it won't come out and probably will not give this as a present anymore which is upsetting since I did buy a few of them after all.
I uploaded some picture to show what I'm talking about.
Only 1 out of 4 actually looks presentable...
For the price, it wasn't worth it at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MDO1028 Paris "Iconic" Tote
We were just in Paris and I loved the Eiffel Tower design on the tote bag because it would be a reminder of our trip and a welcomed tote for back and forth on the train to work in the city. I did not realize that this specific design was "burlap" until I received my order ... burlap is not my favorite. I would have preferred the sturdy sailcloth instead.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Wljaney Stiff material and plain ugly!
This item was supposed to be a gift for my daughter. The item was very stiff and not at all what I expected. It was so ugly that I did not even give it to my daughter. It is not worth the money.

Excellent gift for the price and items had embroidered emblem that made it very appealling and attractive. The ladies who received them really enjoyed getting and commented about the embroidered fleur de lis vs a stamped emblem. Thank you for the offering.

Rated 4 out of 5 by like2buy2 Nice Beach Bag
I purchased these for office friends and ordered a variety of colors. They were larger than I expected and I wondered how much weight they could hold. They seemed sturdy enough for beach bags but not groceries. I really liked the zipper and inside zip pocket. Very cute bags.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3Cats4Kimber Timeless tote
These totes are a long-time Ballard Designs staple, and I'd imagine a best-seller as they've been offered by the company for many years now. I got mine more than 3 years ago at a really low sale price, when the large size was available in the aqua colored jute with the fleur de lis icon. I was pleasantly surprised that the design was actually embroidered on, I thought it would just be printed.
The bag is not lined per se, but the jute is plasticized on the inside, which gives the bag a bit of body and also keeps any spills mostly contained to the inside, and makes it a good beach or poolside bag for containing damp items. Nice leather handles, lightweight yet sturdy bag, and the large size has *a lot* of interior room. Excellent to take to the flea market. These make excellent, personalized gifts. Like most jute products, it is bit stinky, so you'll probably want to "air it out" before use.

Since I bought this when on sale I was concerned the sale price may indicate an inferior product. But not the case. It seems well made with good quality materials. I am happy with this purchase.
