This beautiful claret coloured bag just arrived and I can't believe the quality for the price I paid. It's made with high quality leather and has function and style. I'd love it if this bag also came in a larger size and sported a rear or front zipper security pocket.To address the rant about colour, look up 'claret'. It's a wine colour not fuchsia or bright pink. It's not fair to downgrade the bag as it is the colour one would expected claret to be.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Best of the line!
My first Aimee bag was this one in the claret and I love it!!The leather is thick and soft, but the bag is not heavy!This bag is the perfect tote for stuffing something extra in while shopping or travelling!The beauty of this bag is that this north south style keeps its shape and is not 'floppy' when it is 'zippered' or when you unzipper it.I got the claret color.... it is the true colour of claret.... not a burgundy, not a red, not a cherry, but all of them mixed in there to make a medium tone..... not so bright so it does not clash with most colour outfits. This is the best bag in her line this year!I am very pleased and would purchase another Aimee bag in future!
Sooooooooo disappointed. When you spend your hard-earned money for the 'perfect little black leather bag' and it's brand new, and you feel good wearing it, then ... crash!Used the bag a total of 3 times - normal jaunts out to doctors, etc. Got up from a chair yesterday and the shoulder strap broke. It was where the strap attaches to the bag, so apparently just not sewn in properly or fully, or something. Now, I have to spend more time and money getting it fixed because it costs more to return it!For something brand new, that is .... grrrrrrrrrrr!!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Luvin' the Eggplant
This tote will definitely suit my travelling needs. The eggplant is the exact shade of purple I was looking for. The deep pockets will keep documents secured and organized. This is my fourth bag from Aimee and have received many compliments on each of them. Cannot wait for #5 :)

Nice purse, but colour? Not so much.
By Purse Queen
I purchased this to use for work - needed a handbag less extravagent than my high end handbags, thinking this would be great. First things first, the design of the bag allows for organization and good storage use. Great for ladies who have to pack a lot of things and want some order in their purse. However the colour is so OFF! I ordered it in "Claret" thinking the colour would be pretty much identical to what I was seeing online - a bright red/fuschia. Upon arrival, my handbag is a boring and very plain-jane-burgundy. The actual real life colour cheapens the look and it makes it like a very average handbag that one could find at Winners/Marshalls for less. I was expecting a pretty, bright coloured handbag and was very disappointed. It's not even a shade of red that goes with things - it's a dreary, dark fall/winter colour. Even though the actual construction of the bag is nice - given that its compartmentalized, I just cannot keep it because I can't get over how ugly the colour is. I also saw a photo of the purple in real life, it is also quite dark and not as bright as what is represented on the website. If you are into darker colours and are not looking for a Spring/Summer bag, I would definitely recommend this in the black (maybe the Eggplant, just not the Claret).All in all, this could have been a winner if it weren't for the dreary burgundy colour it turned out to be. If this had come in a different shade range I would have given 4-5 stars. Nice bag but the colours are off. Very dark and flat.

As a girl with a major bag fetish I was skeptical of buying this bag as I had never really heard of Aimee Kestenberg before. Much to my delight the bag is gorgeous. I ordered in eggplant. Colour is very rich. Leather is high quality. The thing that sold me on the Aimee K. line is her pocket placement. Once of my biggest pet peeves with bags. They become bottomless pits. Not so with her intelligent pocket placement on all her bags that I saw. This one does not disappoint! Haven't lost my phone once yet. First day out with this bag someone came running up to me asking if my bag was Aimee K. and my co-workers demanded a show and tell on it. Too funny. One of my new favourite lines at TSC to watch for! 5 stars.

Versatile and lovely
from Keremeos, B.C.
I have this in the claret and love it. I really like the extra and deep pockets and the ability to use it as a shoulder bag if I so choose. What works for me is to tuck the two handles into each outer pocket and snap closed. I find it very handy not to have the handles sticking up, yet I can still access the outer pockets. The bag is well structured and made and the leather soft and lovely. I've already had numerous compliments on it's appearance but also functionality. Love it.

I got this tote in eggplant - what a lush, vivid colour. The suede accents are a nice design element, along with the large tassel detail & gold hardware. This is a well made handbag that not only offers great style but also provides great function for todays busy woman.

What wonderful leather this bag has. It is a larger bag but has great outside pockets on both sides. I bought the claret and the color is absolutely beautiful. Love it.

from Sherwood Park, Alberta
Ok, now I'm really in trouble. If you look at my earlier comments you will see that I love this bag and first ordered it in Eggplant and Claret. Love the quality and superb craftsmanship of this bag. By far the nicest bag I have seen or owned. Just ordered it in black and yes I am keeping the other two colors.
