Road-tested by our buyers, our perfectly proportioned tote is your ticket to ride. We've designed this hold-all carryall with a slightly scooped top so it sits comfortably under your arm. Vines & Berries has a gusseted opening (so you can stuff it a little more). Durable twill-and-leather straps, a full zipper across the top, and plenty of ways to stay organized: one zip pocket outside; two open pockets and one zip pocket inside for passports, smartphones and such; plus a clip-in inside pouch pocket. Sturdy coated canvas in a matte finish. Petite polka dot lining in olive green. Antiqued-brass-finish feet. Imported.
Size: 16" H x 19 1/2" W x 6 1/2" D
Love the Zinnia pattern previously purchase the rolling carry on piece in Zinnia and picked this tote up when it came on sale. I don't think the tote is as well made as the carry on, though the pattern is irresistible at the sale price.
I got the bag to match my pink and grey vines travel bag with wheels since I normally need a tote along with my luggage bag for things I want to be able to access on the trip. The pattern is very pretty and the bag has great pockets so it will also be great for an overnight trip on its own. The only down side was trying to pick between the vines and zinnia patterns. Love them both! Very pleased with my purchase.
Review 3 for Ella Tote
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).

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.
