French Basketeer!

 A while back, I received a beautiful new tote from French Basketeer. Woven baskets scare me. They are so nice to look at, but how long do they stay looking nice. I'm not easy on my bags. Sam was the first to put my bag to the ultimate test. After opening my package, I had a phone call and I went into another (quiet) room. When I returned, Sam was IN my new bag and pretending to fish! I thought I would die! I just knew my bag was destroyed. After removing my child, I examined my bag. Nothing... It still looked new and it hadn't been stretched out.
 That weekend, I packed my bag with enough clothes and necessities to last a long weekend. I visited my parents lakehouse and I had room for everything, even sunscreen, books, and treats for the kids! I couldn't believe all that I was able to fit into this bag! When I returned home, my bag was as good as new. Weeks later, it still looks good as new!
I chose the Marseille bag for my review. It features woven raffia in traditional African motif with black simulated leather handles and corners, fully lined in raffia, interior zip pocket. A beautifully exotic pattern and one of their best sellers. If you are feeling more colorful, she has a huge variety of totes that will probably work for you! My problem was picking just one. She has a rose colored tote that I am putting on my wish list! These would make great gift bags/baskets too! Just buy one and fill with treats, ingredients for a wonderful meal, or spa gifts. There are so many options!
Disclosure: I was sent a bag in order to complete this review. Only honest opinions were given.

Glad you are using the bag, Julie! Many clients use this for a daily carry and years later it still looks great; enjoy!
