November 7, 2012 - Even more beautiful than expected. Sari cloth fully covers a sturdy, flexible fabric. The zippered interior pocket is deep. The 21" handle hangs from shoulder to bottom of my ribcage (I'm 5'5) + also works for holding by hand. Bcs of the sturdy base-fabric of the bag, the clasp really works rather than pulls. Fits my keys, large wallet, phone, notebook, but isn't overly large so I can still get to them.
