This is a lovely bag, but the best part was how it was shipped. They had the bag so nicely packaged that I did not know what to expect when I opened it. I will always order their product.A first impression goes a long way!Oh by the way, I did get my sister to order one and she loves the bag also!HDFJ
As soon as I opened this package that contained two other bags from Thailand as well, I had a funny feeling from the smell and Yet I still tried to air them out and spray them with freshener. When I went to use it, unfortunately mine had a broken zipper, I still was getting sick from the material. Now I wish I'd had tried to wash it first maybe then I'd have been able to at least exchange it for another one. I also was surprised by the color difference but I liked it anyway. I anyone has any suggestions on how to be able to have one of these bags without getting an allergic reaction to it I'd love to know.
Initially I loved this bag. However, the string ties on either side tend to come undone rather quickly. I would suggest the maker get them reinforced somehow (clear glue maybe?) because I found myself rewrapping the string consistently. Otherwise, great bag.
It's prettier than the picture shows and very well made. This one will last, but the picture makes it look black and white....the elephant bands are actually gold. Plus, it was listed as a handbag and it is not....too big...it's a shoulder bag.
