I bought the white version and fell in love with it instantly. The packaging comes with the tote inside the burlap pouch. It's so tiny that it's a wonder the tote fits inside! When I opened the tote and felt the thickness of the material I was pleasantly surprised and pleased. The quality, design, and durability is outstanding.
I bought 3 more to give to family and friends as presents! I love this tote and it's my favorite bag to carry everywhere! :)
