I love everything about these totes but one thing --- albeit, one very important thing.
I wish the bottom and side (inside) seams of the bags were reinforced -- or even 'finished' off. There's just one row of stitches, exposing raw edges.
It's not just the look that is off-putting --- but also the functionality. These seems do appear to be very strong, and I will have to reinforce myself.
This issue is surprising, as the rest of the bag is finished off so well. I'm referring to the inside zipper pocket and the outside edges around the top and the handles.
Perhaps I'm using a higher standard for these bags -- as they are of such good quality and design. Thank you.
