The tote was of better quality than I expected. I bought it as a gift and was very pleased. It was larger than I pictured with good amount of "pockets". It did have an odor that I tried to air out before giving it as a present.
I got this for my Mother-In-Law and I had her name monogrammed on it as well and she loved it. The quality is very good. The fabric is thick and it has plenty of room and pockets, it's not dull or thin like some totes. I would highly recommend this item for a gift or just for yourself.
