"Great size for work papers, Kindle, IPad, etc. If I have a few folders in the tote and, in my opinion, it holds its shape. I like the outside seams and LOVE the berry color (and I'm not a pink or purple person). I hope the handles hold up as the are attached by buckle, so I won't put too much weight in the tote. The leather it sturdy. I have a black Audrey Brooke purse, and the tote looks great with it!"
