A223402 - The Sak Bennett Crochet Hobo Bag
Lining Fell Apart
This bag was a big waist of $$. Cute design but shortly after the 30 day return policy the lining completely shredded , extremely cheap fabric.
The hard roll design of the handle made this purse miserable on your shoulders after a day at Disneyland.
First and last Sak product for me.
love love this bag
I have a sak black bag a little smaller for about 10 years looks the same as when I bought it. I love this style so much all my things fit in it so well and I can find everything very easy. I ordered the taupe it looks so rich love the feather is a great touch. Will be ordering another one in black for the fall.
Best Sak ever!
This bag is great! I think the size is perfect...for a hobo you want it to be a little bigger so it has that slouchy look. I got the blue and it goes with all my summer clothes. The handle and hardware really make the bag. There is a small feather attached as well which I didn't notice until I saw in person. This week on The Talk, they recommended The Sak as a "must Have" for the summer and the one they showed looked like this.
Needs some TLC
I purchased the Bamboo as an "as-is" (savings $20), it arrived in perfect condition. But, to address other posts about the rings coming apart. I inspected every part of the bag and it was very obvious that the rings were not tightly closed/secured. I had my husband fix that with a pair of pliers (wrap the ring in a towel first) to avoid scratching it. However, after using it for a day or two I discovered the real problem with this bag - the hardware is just too heavy for the fabrication of the bag - loved the smell of straw, though...reminded me of the basket shops on a island that I grew up on. Anywho, I was heartbroken to have to return it. I received many compliments on it and really loved "the retro-feel" of the bag. One final note, if you have longer hair, I found the pretty braided handle (wish it was leather) to occasionally snag my hair. I would really love to see this bag re-worked, the interior could also benefit from improving on what little organization there is - the 2 slip pockets need to be trimmed at the tops, so you can find them easier and the zipper one needs beefing up.
Nice for the Price
I have the dune stripe. At first I was surprised that one of the stripe colors is just a little bit mauve, like a slight sunset pinkish. But it all goes together well and is a fun, casual style bag. The lining is a light tan color in this one. It's not for someone who needs structure, but I use an organizer inside which helps. It can hold a lot. The single strap stays on my shoulder, and I like the length.
This bag is gorgeous but it is HUGE! I loved the handle, hardware and the crochet aspect of the bag, but this thing was like carrying a five gallon bucket for me. I wish Sak had another one just like it only a smaller version as I don't carry the kitchen sink and a tool chest with me. lol
I HAVE TO SAY I RARELY WRITE REVIEWS BUT I BOUGHT THIS BAG, I WAS VERY HAPPY WHEN IT ARRIVED...IT FIT ALL MY STUFF, I BOUGHT THE NAVY COLOR...GREAT WITH JEANS...AS SOON AS I SLUNG IT OVER MY SHOULDLER ONE OF THE CLIPS BROKE AND THAT WAS THE END OF THE EXCITEMENT OF GETTING A NEW BAG. I DID RETURN IT FOR THE SAME BAG HOPING THIS WAS JUST A FLUKE...I AM HOPEFUL
Perfect summertime bag!
I absolutely love this bag, it is perfect for the summertime! Love the weight, color and the little charm w/feather.
Monterey Stripe - Beautiful, But...
I put off wearing this beautiful bag for a few weeks after I got it (received 4/30). From the first day I revealed it, I received many compliments. Even my husband, who is an artist, liked everything about it, especially the colors and print...
I first wore it on May 25th, then again on the 26th...by the middle of the day on the 26th, I started to feel something prickly on the outside of the bag and I noticed there were a couple of the colorful threads of the bag poking out; they must have had glue on the ends or something because again, they were prickly. I also noticed that the hot pink lining, which I also loved, had started to separate from the top edge of the bag. I wore it again only three more days and there are quite a few more pricklies present and some loose threads hanging out from the inner lining. Sigh.
This bag is in no way 16 inches long. I could only just barely fit my 12-inch long , 3-inch wide purse organizer into the bottom of the bag and there was NO room left over on either side. But the smaller size didn't bother me so much.
The design and the colors scream "Summer is Here!" and makes me happy to look at. It's truly an eye-catcher and compliment-getter - I was ready to buy three more colors! But, considering that after only a few wearings it's already falling apart, and the handle, while nice looking and comfortable, likes to roll off my shoulder more than it stays on my shoulder, I think it's best that I refrain from doing so.
I would recommend this bag for very light use only to carry a few light pieces of clothing or maybe the contents of a small clutch to avoid stressing the bag out (like I'm guessing I did for it to already be falling apart like this).
I loved this bag when I got it. But almost 3 weeks later one of the clips broke right off. It could not be fixed so I sent it back. Too bad. I really liked it otherwise.
Had a Sak bag a few decades ago; didn't like because it was too droopy when loaded! However, this bag is well constructed on the bottom and supports contents. Just got it in the bamboo color; might come back for the multi when in stock! Tho' it does smell like a new broom it isn't offensive in the least. Will coordinate well with my new boho summer clothing!
The Sak Rocks!
I have been carrying The Sak handbags for years and love them. I ordered this bag in Monterey Stripe and it's so cute. I love the different colors and it will go with many of my outfits this summer. It's a large bag and that's fine with me because I carry magazines and sometimes a water bottle. The length of the strap is perfect and I've never had any issues with it slipping off my shoulder. I removed one star because the pull tag on the zipper broke the first day that I used it ( and I was not jerking it hard). If I use the inside pocket I have to be careful because the contents could fall out and there's only a snap that closes the entire purse. It would have been nice if the purse zipped to ensure that things could not fall out. I also don't care for the hot pink lining, but it does match the pink in the stripes on the purse. Overall, I love this bag and will continue to purchase The Sak purses.
