The bag is very beautiful and I was very excited to start using it. Well, I put all my belongings in there that I usually carry to church on Sunday Morning (which was not heavy) and to my surprise, the straps (all 4) started unraveling at the seams. I called ChristainBook.com and they sent me out another one and I used it ONE time and again the staps started pulling away from the seams. Unbelievable for such a beautiful bag. The actual tote is nicely made but what good is the tote if you don't have sturdy enough staps to carry it. Will be sending them all back for a refund.
