Bamboula Ltd. & Madewell Woven Shoulder Bag

Bamboula Ltd. & Madewell Woven Shoulder Bag is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the blue I purchased the blue color of this bag and I love it. It's unique and you can tell it's well-made. The straps are longer than I expected but I actually like the length. Probably a little more than I needed to spend on this bag but I like the story behind who made it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect summer tote! i love this sisal bag, especially the blue and natural ikat one. Very sophisticated, and just right to carry everywhere. And the leather straps are just right for an easy carry shoulder bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very stylish while being solid and roomy! This tote can hold just about anything without looking stuffed or misshapen. It is really great with jeans, for the beach, or with a navy suit. Very well made and love the leather detailing. Additionally, it looks like it was much more expensive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beach Bag The beach bag is so well made it is perfect for the beach. It is light and yet large enough to carry towels and supplies.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love the look not the feel I loved the look of this bag but I did not enjoy the scratchy feel of the texture. The handle was long which I thought was nice.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Matching issues on mine, too The ikat weave on the bag I received is actually really nice, but the leather handles and the leather trim are completely different shades, to the point that the bag looks cheaply made. If the leathers were a closer match, I'd be quite pleased with it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice But Not a Match Great bag but pattern shown on blue and white tote does not resemble what I received. The wide bands of color and ikat pattern do not exist on the tote I got, it was more of a thin and even blue and white stripe all over the bag. Tried ordering a second to see if it would look like the one shown online and again it did not. Photo is a poor representation of the bags they actually sell.
