I received this bag today with other items I have purchased, and I was delighted with it. I had previously looked at this bag and decided it may be too big, or not be exactly as nice as the photo. I was pleasantly surprised with the gorgeous gold thread in the cotton fabric (front, back and base), and the copper medallions to the top and front give this accessory a glam accent. Gorgeous beading and stitching to the front and the pom poms and tassel really accent the vibe. Love this bag, and can really recommend this to anyone. Not too big, as great size and the length is practical as well. Strong handles. I did purchase another Aztec bag at the beginning of the year, and was disappointed with this one. This bag I will definitely use.
