This is my second purse purchase from Leatherology and I love it! I was looking for a fun color for summer and poppy fits the bill. I especially like that the bucket is not too deep but both my wallet and checkbook can stand up yet be easily reachable. For me, the best part is that it is sturdy enough to sit stationary on the bottom. I have had lots of fun with different knots. It ties/unties very easily and you can determine how tight you want it. All may not like this design element but I do more than I thought I would as it adds interest. Fabulous quality, packaging, and I've received many compliments on the color and black tipped edges. It is a very classy, beautiful purse. I purchased the "Medium Pouch" in black for those items I didn't want loose in my purse and it is a perfect fit. I recommend both products.
