This colorful summer tote belonged to my mother and she had it since the '90s.  

She never carried it as a tote outside the house or used it as a purse.  She kept skeins of wool in it as she used to knit.  It is quite large and is in very good condition.  The colors are beautiful and still very bright.  The tote looks like straw and probably is since was purchaaed some time ago but I cannot remember for sure.  All I remember is that my mother had this for a very long time and she took very good care of it.

There is a gold-tone clasp which has some age wear to it not because the tote was used but just from the age.  No one would ever notice it as it is still bright but you can see in the photos that there is marring to it.  But who is ever going to look that closely at your purse's clasp!

To close the top of the purse, there is a gold-tone clasp which fastens onto a sturdy hook on the opposite side.  A good size 6-1/2" X 7" zippered pocket inside the tote for a phone, money, license, etc.

The tote measures vertically without including the handles 13-1/8" high
Across the top 16-1/2"
Width appx. where the hot pink band is 7-1/2"
Bottom across appx. 7"
The drop from the top of the handles to the gold clasp is 9-1/2"

These photos are greatly enlarged so they can be seen but the imperfections are pretty small in actual size.  There is 2-1/2" of separation on one side of the bottom which could be pulled together with needle and thread or a very thin wire. (Photo)   On the other side, there is no separation but 1-1/2" of the straw has broken off on that end of the bottom but it is barely noticable on the bottom of the purse.  (Photo)  No one will be able to see either one of those.  One triple pinhead of soiling on one side on the yellow section.  (Photo)

Care Instructions

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.

Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning. Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower. Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it. The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
