i am starting high school this year, and i wanted a cute, unique backpack that no one else would have. i am SO happy i found this one. i ordered right away, and it came in about 5 days. when it came, the ups box was kinda small, but somehow it fit in there. it didn't have any funny smell (some of the reviews say theres had a weird smell) it has been very durable this summer, and i am so excited to show it off to all my friends. its an AMAZING backpack, and at a good price (: i would definately recommend this backpack to those looking for a stylish, unique, adorable bag.
I ordered this bag after reading the reviews and unfortunately I agree that this bag is nothing as it appears in the picture. The backpack is very large and the colors were very deep. I was hoping to have a nice vibrant backpack, but this was nothing more than a musty, dark sack.
This backpack was suppose to be a gift for my daughter...and when it arrived I was quite disappointed. The bag was crumpled up in a very small UPS delivered bow. It looked very worn and used..and NOT durable at all. The worst part it had an awful smell. My daughter did not like it at all either. I returned the bag immediatley. Will be looking elsewhere for another stylish bag.
I bought this backpack as it was multicolored, and I figured it would go with everything that I was taking on vacation. It was described, however, I should have known that it would be 'itchy' and uncomfortable against the skin, or as through a thin blouse. I beileve it is good quality, one should just think twice about how they are going to use it, and if they are sensitive to this type of fabric. Would I return it if I could ? Yes, I would.
My Recycled Jute Backpack makes me smile! The colors and design are from previous days we all remember with fondness. Obviously, jute will wear forever. Craftsmanship is high quality. The seams are double sewn and reinforced. The bag itself is lined. Toggle wood buttons secure all pocket flaps. I usually prefer a more secured closure; however, the buttons are appropriate. I can see this bag spending many years and many miles with me! Highly recommend.
The colors of the bag are two shades of typical natural jute (think old potato sacks) about 3 shades of light brown to beige, these are the background colors. Front pocket is purple with a burnt orange pocket flap. Shoulder straps are purple, lettering on pack is in black. Long wooden buttons secure flap on the three outer pockets. I like it for summer, very light weight.
