    These bags are beautifully constructed but there is one serious design flaw. The handles are attached to the body of the bag by merely two lines of sttiching. That isn’t nearly enough for a durable product.

    Here’s a bit of a story. In the late 1980’s I purchased some canvas bags designed by the manager of a local Greenpeace store who had them locally made. They were good quality canvas with excellent details such as banded seams but the great selling point is that the straps were sewn completely around the body of the bag so the entire weight was supported by straps rather than stitching. After twelve years of hard use the handle portion of the 2″ web strapping had frayed nearly to the point of breaking. I took the design and had a friend make two new ones. Those lasted about 15 years although I had to reinforce the handles and do some occasional repairs.

    The point of the story is I’m glad to pay a good price but expect exceptional durability. The handles on these bags would not last because they are attached flimsily, not at first use of course but over a relatively short time they would fail. Of course knowing that I’m adding a new layer of webbing that is sewn around the existing handle and half way down the side of the canvas bag. I’m pretty sure I’ll get at least ten years out of my modification.

    Don’t get me wrong, these are beautifully made and worth the money. With a change to the design of the strap they would be five stars although the cost would increase.

    This is an exceptionally tough shopping bag! Double layer canvas and the seams are very strong! This is a quality product and at first I thought this bag was a little pricey, but now that I have it, I know it will outlast any bags that I have now. I agree with one reviewer who stated that they wished the handles came down and wrapped around the bag to support it, but that’s not to say that the handles are weak, it’s just saying that they will probably be the first part of the bag to break down. I still feel that I will get several years worth of use out of this bag.

    I was looking for quality shopping bags to take with me to the grocery store — and I found them.

    These bags are the exact same size as grocery paper bags.

    These bags are super sturdy, especially when compared to other bags on the market or those you can buy at your local supermarket.

    These bags are double-lined and have double-stitching throughout.

    These bags ARE expensive ($24 a piece), but they should last years.
