A great tote. I like to buy it in red and green and present Christmas gifts in it each year. Makes an extra present at a great price. Recipients love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3Pumpkins Product was exactly what I expected.
Great product, very reasonable on price, may buy one or more after getting this -- nice gift, but want one for myself! Service was perfect, and delivered quick. I look forward to Ballard catalogs to add things to my wish list:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Grappagirl Beautiful color and style
This is my second tote purchase. My first tote is probably 5 years old and indestructible - I've taken it as a carryon on many airline flights and it has held up beautifully. I purchaed this tote as a beach bag but it's almost too pretty to use on the beach. It was a great bargain too - got it for 50% off!

I bought one of these totes for myself and then ordered 3 more for gifts after seeing how nice the first one was. Very ample size and nice quality. I'm using it as a beach tote but it can be used for lots of other things. The inside pocket is small, good for keys and one or two cell phones and zips securely. I am very happy with my purchase.

This bag is being used as a tote to carry to the swimming pool and I love that the anchor is actually monogrammed onto the bag. I get lots of compliments on this bag !

Rated 5 out of 5 by HobbitGirl I love these totes
I have purchases several of these totes. They make GREAT gifts. I use them as 'wrapping' paper to hold other gift items. People love them. When they're on sale, they're a great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EastTexasMama Great value for the price
I ordered these totes as hostess gifts and they were perfect! They are much bigger than they looked in the picture, so they can hold quite a bit. They are great quality, and I really like that there is a zippered pocket inside and the top zips closed. Makes a great gift!

Rated 5 out of 5 by pageantsgirlsmom We bought the Crown Tote and Anchor Tote as Gifts
We these as gifts and my crafty daughter embellished them with rhinestones to make them extra special! The friends she gave them to loved them!!!! I highly recommend, I also have one for myself and my daughter uses hers for her gym bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LJE4PH Great Value!
These totes are adorable, well made, sturdy and a LOT bigger than I thought they'd be. Terrific for the beach or a day at the farmers market. I bought several for myself and for gifts and am truly thrilled with them. Beyond that, I get compliments on how cute they are every time I use one!

Rated 1 out of 5 by ABM256 Terrible bag
I am completely floored by all of the positive reviews on this bag. The fabric is very scratchy and rough, which I expected, since it's jute. What I did not expect is that the handles would actually hurt my shoulder if I'm carrying it while wearing a bathing suit or sleeveless shirt. (I bought this bag wanting to use it as a beach bag, so obviously this is a problem.) The handles are rigid, rough and very uncomfortable to use. They appear to be the poorest quality leather. I would absolutely not recommend this to anyone. I don't think it's up to Ballard's usual standard.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LSBgal Leaves fibers on my clothing
I ordered the natural color bag with the Eiffel Tower on it. Although the bag is well constructed and the size is good, unfortunately it leaves burlap fibers on my clothing. I probably won't utilize it again.....darn!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ljdcom EXCELLENT Quality and Value!!! Back for more!!!
I had purchased 40 "crown" totes when they were on sale for my daughters bridal shower as thank you gifts to the guests.They were a HUGE Hit with everyone.
Now I am back for more as thank you gifts again, this time for guests who rent our vacation condo on Longboat Key in Florida, throwing in a beach towel and sun screen... I am sure they will enjoy as much as everyone else has! Big impact, high quality for such a reasonable affordable cost!

Rated 5 out of 5 by moremar Roomy tote
Much larger than I expected. Nice tote for going to pool or to pick up few things at the market. Although it is roomy the straps do not seem like they could hold much weight, so I am not planning on stuffing it with lots of things. I love the Eiffel Tower design. Great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GiftShopper My new favorite tote bag.
I ordered four of these before last Christmas to give as gifts to my daughter-in-law, her mother and her sister. I put some treats in them, But the bags were THE GIFT.
They seemed to love them.
When I saw their excitement I was feeling a little left out...wishing I had bought one for myself as well. So, when I saw that Ballard still had them (and they were on sale) I jumped at the chance to get one for myself. This bag comes off as elegant, but is lined with a plastic like coating so it could be used to carry a wet swimsuit home from the beach, and for carrying a picnic to he beach as well. The handles are leather, they can hold up to almost anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mitten92 Great bag!
This is my second tote order and I love it. It's good for my knitting; swim gear, gym gear etc. I have also used it for my travel bag as a "take on" for the plane. Can't go wrong with this bag.

Rated 3 out of 5 by lilybag This bag is too big for me to carry but it was my mistake not realizing the size.
This product seems well made and was true to color. I misunderstood the size and it is way too big for me to carry books which is what I wanted it for. My fault I guess.

Rated 1 out of 5 by UsedtoloveBallard2 Purchased 3 and all defective!
I was so disappointed with these totes. On one the handles are attached over 1/4 inch difference-very noticable. Also it appears that they didn't push down all the way on the molds on the leather handles and you can see outlines that were in the incorrect place. One was attached cricked-very noticable. On one tote the metal appeares to be old looking as if it sat in a moist environment and tarnished.- the other two look so different. I should have sent these back but so busy and hate paying shipping charges! Just do not buy as gifts as they are not up to ballard's usual quality and you will be embrassed!

I received the tan bag from my boss for xmas. Liked it so much - sturdy & stylish, I've purchased the aqua blue for my daughters birthday. I also bought the cosmetic bags. They are just a slight shade off, but it will be a nice set for our next adventure. Great gift and a good value.

While the fabric isn't soft or delicate this is a workhorse of a bag - able to put a lot of stuff in and carry comfortably on your shoulder. The graphic design (Eiffel tower) is nice too!
