Customer Reviews for Ella Tote - Vines & Berries
Review 1 for Ella Tote - Vines & Berries
Disappointing in design and execution
Date:June 27, 2014
I wanted and expected to love this tote, which I also needed. The top zipper is inset quite a lot and additionally is very difficult to operate. It would be a fight with every single opening and closing. I also did not like the way the zipper connected at the outside.
The feet on the bottom of the tote are so small they barely qualify as feet, and it is basically unstructured.
In spite of all the high reviews, I did not care for this tote at all and did not think it would be practical, useful or worth the cost (even though it's not particularly expensive).

Review 2 for Ella Tote - Vines & Berries
Date:May 23, 2014
I bought three of these on a recent sale: one for me (leaves which are as lovely in person as onscreen) and one for each daughter (both zinnias b/c they love them). We are very happy with how they look and function. I have used mine to carry misc. stuff for a party (portable speaker, iPad, extra shoes) in the most adorable manner. And one of my daughters has been using hers to carry laptop, lunch etc back and forth to work on the bus. I have the leaved wheeled bag and iPad case too and enjoy the coordinated pieces.
I love my tote. It fit perfectly underneath the seat in front of me for my flight. It holds a good amount. The tote has a number of zippered areas. Great if you knit! I also purchased the roll on duffle in the same(Zinia) pattern. The handle on the tote works perfectly to sling over the handle of the duffle, twice for pulling through the airport/subway.
I had my eye on this bag for a while and bought it and the matching iPad case for international trip. Very sturdy, cute pattern, and the coating on the bag is just so great. I smile every time I use it. And polka dot lining adds nice touch.
I have two of these bags, and love them both. They are functional, as well as beautiful, and so far, have worn well. I use the little cosmetics bags that come with the large tote - a nice touch. Both fabrics - the leaves and zinnias - are cheerful, and bring a smile to my face. Good job on these.
I bought this tote in the zinnia pattern and it's as cute as can be. Very large and fuctional, and the pattern is adorable. I love the coated canvas; it will wipe clean easily. I agree with other reviewers that the top zipper zips a bit low-not a big deal, but it does cut down on what the bag can hold a tad. I can't wait to use this!
I have been looking at this bag for a while, and finally bought it when it went on sale. It is very well made, and a generous size. I love the leaf print and the basic design with not too many pockets.
I'm so happy with this tote! Great feature that the canvas has a water proof coating - makes this a 4 season tote. Great size to hold tons of stuff and the strap is a very good length - easy to carry even with a large coat or sweater on. It is definitely quality made - seems very durable. One of my favorites is that I was able to purchase the iPad case and the inner case in the same playful Leaves pattern.
So far this is my most expensive tote and I LOVE the print (LEAVES), the material and most of the features. A weekend of clothing (2 pr of jeans, 3 shirts, one hodie, 1 tank top, a pajama set, 3 undies , 2 bras, 2 pr wool socks, and toiletries fits in. ALL THIS AND WITH THE ZIPPER CLOSED! Sandals in the outside pocket. I do not have the need to use the interior pockets and I wouldn't know what to put in it! I am petite and the bag carries well under my arm... well, I am not particular about how it carries as long as it is comfortable and THIS ONE IS. Gifted to mom and sister too!
I really wanted to love this bag. The prints are great. The bag is big which I knew from other reviews, but when I saw it in person I felt it was too big for what I'd use it for. Once loaded, I was afraid it would be too heavy. The deal breaker that caused me to return it; however, was what I thought were pockets on the outside sides of the tote to put a water bottle or stash keys or phone ended up being just decorative. There isn't really anything special about this tote; not much organizational help in the way of pockets. One thing that is nice is that it zips at the top making the contents a bit more secure.
This is a great bag, beautifully made with lots of features I wanted. BUT it was too big for what I needed so it had to go back. I know this company has made a smaller tote so I'll wait until the smaller one comes out and buy again.
This tote was exactly as advertised. The size is perfect for weekend or short trips. Handles are very comfortable and the outside material should last for a long time. The details -- the polka dot interior and 'legs' on the bottom - make this tote a winner. I was so satisfied that I bought another as a gift.
I am anxious to use this tote on my trip west. I plan to use it for air travel and then as a beach tote. I am hoping it wears well in both environments. Reviews and customer service representatives give it positive marks.
This is a fantastic bag. Yes, it is rather wide for over-the-shoulder, but it works. It's a great overnight/weekend bag - or for a week-long trip to Amsterdam. Really! The quality is excellent and the four cleats on the bottom and weather-treated fabric assure quality and substance. I bought two on sale as gifts. Maybe I'll keep one. :-)
The hound print is super cute; much cuter in person than expected. It is a blue that has a little aqua tint, so not just a boring blue. The print is vibrant and just great looking, especially with the matching carry on! the top zipper and outer zipper are most important for staying organized and so nothing rolls down the aisle under your seat. Seems very durable, and it's HUGE. Super price on sale too!
