The Reusable Canvas Tote

The Reusable Canvas Tote is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gift - for me or for someone else! I bought a few of the Madewell tote bags to give friends as Christmas gifts. The price is great, so I was willing to take a risk on the quality. I was very happy to receive the totes in the mail - the quality is great, the pattern is cool, and I think they will make great gifts. The "Bien Fait" tote is a sleek design that will be a great gift for my city friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and nice The phrase "BIEN FAIT" perfectly describes the bag. This simple canvas tote is definitely done well. It goes well with any outfit that is not too dressy and makes a great extra bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tres Chic! I love this bag and everything it stands for. My friends and family speak french so every time they see the bag, they pay me compliments. This bag makes a statement not about Madewell, but about me. Every girl needs this bag and believe the words. Nice job, Madewell!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent little tote for $5 I bought one of these in the store a few months ago. Some of the reviews on this tote are very whiny pants. It's a $5 tote, not a $25, so why be so picky about what it doesn't have? I think it's excellent quality for only $5. Mine says Madewell on one side and Bien Fait on the other, but the one shown here has a map or something. My only request is that I wish It had also been offered in cream/white with black lettering.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cute til it broke... I loved this bag, but after a month of light usage, it split along one of the seams.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute, inexpensive canvas bag I bought one of these to toss in my car with the intention of of using it for a small grocery shopping run or to hold stuff for temporary transport. No intention of using it with anything too heavy. Note that it doesn't have a flat bottom, so it's not the best for a fair amount of groceries or anything that has to sit flat, but it does exactly what I need it to do in it's own cute Madewell-style. Fits my needs for it and looks cute, I call it a win.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Anything but average Durable and thick material. I feel like I pack too much in it, and it may break, but nothing. No tears or stretching out of the material. I roll it up and put it in my purse for shopping. I have even used it at the library for my kids books and it easily held upwards of 15 books. It's cute and more fashionable than the ones you get at the grocery store or the plastic coated ones- bleh. I promise you'll get your moneys worth!
