Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing summer bag I've been using this bag all summer! It's very cute and I've gotten a ton of complements on it. It's super roomy so I can fit anything I need into it. There was a light herbal smell to it which faded the day after I unpackaged it. As far as fraying goes, I have not noticed any and I have been using this bag every day for the past few weeks. Overall, a great summer buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality summer bag This bag is spacious, sturdy, and unique. It can fit at least two beach towels and then some. The palm leaf smell is strange but I assume it will fade over time. Overall solid bag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute Summer Bag But Small Defect Received in mail right before July 4 weekend. It can carry a lot which may be the reason one of the stitches to a strap came off the first day of use. (The straps are stitched through the leather and straw with what appears to be material similar to dental floss) So, I got real old school punk and reinforced every handle stitch with floss! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Works and holds a lot without any problems now. Otherwise, I love the bag, perfect for summer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great bag but... When I saw this online, I had to have it and I was so glad to snatch it up before it was sold out. I really like the bag as it is roomy and impossibly cute for summer. But, I question how well this will hold up over time given that it is just made from palm leaves. Another qualm- the smell is awful and it might be a deal breaker for me. Really cute, but I think this bag is going back :(

Rated 2 out of 5 by from fraying I received this as a gift and the bag has been gently used two times for a casual dinner and once for a day date. The palm leaves are fraying terribly. The bag had minimal contents inside, nothing harsh, and was not rubbing on anything when not in use. This looks ridiculous. I'm not very happy with the fraying palm leaves all over the bag. I either a) have to cut each frying piece or b) sell this somewhere. The smell that other reviewers stated does somewhat fade over a few days. I hung this bag out in my living room to let it "air out" before use. Overall, what was a great bag now looks trashy after a few uses so I wouldn't recommend this bag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Underrated—give it a chance! I was so bummed when this sold out a few weeks ago, as I hoped to bring it on vacation to Cape Cod. When it came back into stock, I immediately ordered it as well as the small version. I can vouch for some of the prior feedback, but I also think some people are giving it an unfair chance. Yes, the smell is bizarre, but after hanging it up to air out overnight, most of the smell went away by the AM; hopefully it goes away completely soon. The leather straps seem decent quality to me—thick, soft, and pretty consistent color. Yes, there are small wispy bits poking out all over the place, but mine looks just like the diagonal stock photo when you magnify it; the photo doesn't hide the wispies. I assume this is inevitable with a natural material as brittle as palm leaves. Frankly, I would be skeptical if it looked perfect! It's bound to happen eventually, and it adds to the artisan-made charm of it (I appreciate that it wasn't made in China). Overall, I think it's a great summer bag.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the look, question the quality... I can't say anything for the smell, because I didn't even take the bag out of the plastic. Palm leaves were already sticking out in so many places, I can't imagine how this bag could hold up to many uses. Sent back right away. So sad because I really liked the look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute summer tote. A unique take on a summer tote. I love the shape, the spacious capacity and that is is handmade by artisans. Wore this out last weekend and everyone was asking me where I got it. Yes there are going to be little bits of palm sticking out here and there but I think that adds character!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shopper! I was so happy to finally get this bag when it came back in stock. Took it on vacation and it was a perfect size for my carry on, and beach bag. Love this purchase!
