Nice looking leather bag. It is LARGE and not really for use as a regular bag. I put my laptop in it on a recent trip. The longer strap fastener got bent out of shape but I managed to fix that so I can use the larger strap. The leather bits are not stitched all the way arond which I don't understand. The colors of my bag were very nice but not the same as the one in the photo. The bag isn't really a purse. It is more of very fancy messenger type bag or a travel bag. The leather smells good and I think it's nice but if I'd known I wouldn't be able to use it as a purse I wouldn't have bought it. It would be great if they made a small version of it.
This handbag was not well made at all. The patchwork was not even stiched all the way around? Unfinished is all I kept thinking... even the straps have leather only on one side? Anyway, I have received many high quality items and good deals on Overstock.com..... I highly recommend this place to everyone I know....However, this one headed right back....I will try again on another handbag but this one just does not make the grade....Also, the lining is all black so it was like a deep dark pit... you could never find anything without a flashlight.
I bought this purse over a year ago. I don't have a collection of expensive (or inexpensive, for that matter) purses. I typically invest a lot of time finding a purse that meets all of my demands: Reasonable price; funky, casual style; versatile style and use; spacious; durable. Once I find a purse, all of my daily essentials go in and they stay there. I commute by bus and carry all of the many items that I require to get me through my busy days. My purses have to endure all 4 seasons of Pittsburgh's changeable weather. This bag has endured daily use, a summer move of our family home ( I was constantly carrying documents, papers, and then personal belongings...the bag is cavernous), all kinds of weather for well over a year. Beginning with the first day of use, I have received compliments all of the time, from women of different ages, styles, socioeconomic groups. I love this purse. When I started seeing a little bit of wear (after over a year of use), I came back to Overstock to purchase another, but the Maya bag wasn't available and I purchased the "Bailey" Bag instead, which hasn't even come close to living up to the Maya. (Very disappointing quality) There is only one thing that I would change about the Maya bag: More zipper compartments / dividers.
I was looking for a bag to comfortably carry my laptop, papers, books, etc... So the size of this bag was important to me. It is a SIZABLE tote! And while the stitch quality leaves a little to be desired, and the smell of leather lingered in my bedroom for a full day, it was a good purchase for the money. I do expect to have to take it to a leather shop and have the straps reinforced but other than that, I am pleased with the purchase. Just as a side note: I CAN NOT go anywhere without someone commenting on this bag. If nothing else, it will get you a lot of ATTENTION!

I bought this bag for my "doctor" bag. When I take my mother for a doctor's appointment I pack water, snacks, Kindle, a magazine--plus all the other stuff that usually goes in my purse. This bag is just the right size. Wish it were a tiny bit lighter but, hey, I'm delighted. It's good looking,a great travel bag.

This was a great bag. I originally purchased to find out how good it was with the intention of buying more for my sisters. They appreciate a good well made tote. This bag did not have a heavy leathery smell to it, but the leather and hardware were of good quality. I ended up giving my sister the tote. I can't wait to purchase the next one.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Loved the colors. Great for summer and fall.

- How accurate was the sizing? Glad overstock provided the dimensions. I was able to put a lot of things in this bag.
I gave it three stars because its doesnt look like the one on the monitor which I feel in love with. I kept it because it not the worse bag in the world the colors are like the other reviewers said not fall like. Its more of a mid fall- spring time purse. Its a big bag which I love im the type that like to put everything I need inside my purse. The purse smell of geniune leather which I love! I would still recommend it to someone because my mom love it, so I guess I have to order her one.
This bag reminded me of my favorite aunt back in the 70s. I was so looking forward to carrying it. However, I thought the leather colored patches were suede. There was nothing wrong with the bag itself per se', just not what I thought I was getting. I returned it with no problem at all, however, I would suggest if you have a return, use your own UPS or USPS label you may come out cheaper, it cost approximately $$ to return using overstock's label.
This bag looks unique and funky on the site, but when it arrives, it looks like an arts and crafts project gone wrong. The stitching seems sloppy and the quillting could be done better. Don't get this bag unless you want people to stare at you for all the wrong reasons.
