Great carry all for workI ordered this on line and was pleasantly surprised by the look and quality of this bag. The leather is so soft and pliable. It’s perfect for my laptop, daytimer and water bottle for the office - professional yet casual. Couldn’t be happier with this purchase. Highly recommend.

Woven toteI have been looking for a tote like this one for a number of years. I had a very similar magazine tote in a two tone nylon/leather from another company. I loved it so much, but the lining ended up with a hole in it and it was too frayed to fix. The downtown woven tote from Roots is beautiful. It's slightly deeper than what I had, so I do need to get used to that, I've had to dig around to find keys. When looking at the picture online, it didn't seem as deep with all the items neatly displayed. I've added a small cosmetic bag to keep smaller items from becoming a mess at the bottom. And because it's also wider than what I had, I find that at the top opening the leather ends will stick out a bit farther from under my arm. Unless I fill the bag more it does tend to be flappy and thinner that way. The leather is very soft, neutral in colour to match anything, woven texture is so lovely and different than all my current bags. The double straps are the perfect length for on the shoulder and carrying it dangling down without dragging on the ground. I like that it's unlined and will avoid original lining problems. I've been using it for about a month, so far so good. Bought it during a customer appreciation sale, so the price was also a plus. Overall I'm extremely pleased with my purchase!
