I've been slowly getting rid of all my leather bags and as I get rid of them, I like to replace them with vegan, ethical versions and this bag has helped me toss three of my non-vegan bags. I'm a mom of a toddler and it's great for holding my stuff and things I need to tote around for him while still looking cute. The straps are comfortable and I love the divider pocket in the middle.
I am so in love with my Crossbody Tote!! It is the perfect size for my everyday errand running needs! I thought I would love it best used as a croosbody with the strap, but I may actually prefer it on my shoulder! I love that I have the option! It slings right over my shoulder with one hand and the beautiful strap is also easily removed one handed. Versatility is always great in my book! It fits a huge water bottle, several library books and journals, my large essential oil case, and all my other junk I have to have!! Sustainability isn't a perfect game, but I feel fantastic about Emmaly's choices of top notch vegan leather, how she uses as much of her scraps as she can, and that she is willing to repair your bag if ever it needs it! I have 4 cats, 2 little boys, and a great dane in my life (and a not so careful husband ; ) ), so my bags from her have seen some wear, including massive food spills and cats (not declawed) laying on them when I'm not looking and my bags miraculously clean right up and look brand new. I love supporting women entrepreneurs, but I'll keep coming back (as I have with EBA) when the intention and the quality are superior!! Thanks for the new addition to my family of EBA bags!! I love this style! She will be loved forever!!
