Tignanello Canvas Double Zip Crossbody with Turnlock Closure
Love the look, but not the wear
I agree with several previous reviews. I loved this when I first got it, color, size, crossbody. Used it for several trips this summer and it was very handy, my first crossbody. It was nice to have handsfree. But...as previously stated, the credit card slots are not wide enough for my cards which is a hassle. After several months of casual wear, the faux leather in corners have worn off exposing beige fabric beneath, tacky! Also spilled small amt of coffee on one spot on back (fortunately) which have been unable to get out. Overall not a wise choice for me. Back to leather I guess.
Best crossbody bag ever

Prettier than it is practical
I really love the design on this bag but was so disappointed that its execution wasn't workable. I even liked the clever 2-part design of the key fob. But the bag looks bulky with the same amount of stuff that fits comfortably into my 'Tignanello Pebble Leather Crossbody Bag with Front Pockets.' In addition, the pebble leather hides the bulk of my stuff while the canvas of this bag shows every bump and bulge. Since crossbody bags tend to be on the small side, a better design would be to include cargo pockets on the outside for bulkier items. The organizer needs to be on the outside of the bag as a modified cargo pocket so that it can expand outward once the organizer is fully populated. When it's accordioned in the middle like on this bag (as visually pleasing as the design is), it's too bulky to shut properly. When I wear it crossbody over my right shoulder, as is my habit, the canvas buckle sits right in the middle of my chest, while not a good look, I could probably have dealt with if it weren't for the other issues. The gussets on the organizer don't fold inward on their own once the organizer is fully populated, (not overloaded, just every slot and pocket in use.) Six credit card slots aren't enough; I've gotten spoiled by the 14 slots in other Tignanello organizers and don't want to go back. The magnetic snaps between the zip compartments aren't strong enough to shut the bag when it's full. The credit card slots are not wide enough to accommodate standard credit card sizes; I had to force the cards in horizontally and because of the non-leather trim I suspect the card slots won't expand with wear due to the rigidity of the synthetic material. So very sad but back it goes.
Love the bag but . . .
This is a great cross-body bag and I would have given it 5 stars but it does have one design flaw, mentioned by at least one other reviewer -- the credit card slots are not wide enough to accomodate standard credit card sizes. I have to put the cards in lengthwise and then, because they don't fit snugly, they aren't really secure. Other than that problem, the bag is light, it's easy to adjust the straps from shoulder to cross-body and it's a Tignanello! I own about a dozen Tignanello bags, and I love them all.
I have this in black and it's a cute go-to bag for vacation, concerts, restaurants, errands or any situation where you'd prefer a smaller bag. It's very organized because of the many compartments. I like the slip pocket on the back and the basic organizer in the middle section with credit card slots and room for more. The only problem with the slots is that some of them are not quite wide enough to accommodate standard-sized credit cards (on my bag at least). I also like that you can easily knot the strap to wear it short-shoulder or unknotted as a traditional shoulder or crossbody. I'm not a fan of the turnlock close and would have liked this bag more if it were designed without it. I do appreciate the smaller size and light weight of the bag for those times when I just don't want to carry alot of stuff or be burdened with a larger, heavier bag.
This purse is too small for my daily needsm but I will keep it as it may be good for travel. It is comfortable on the shoulder. My suggestion is if you need a bigger bag do not choose this one.
So close but not good enough
Love the size, look, and functionality but the faux leather is awful. I expect more from Tig!!!!!
The canvas is exactly what I hoped for and I would have paid a little more for leather or better manmade product.
Perfect for a European Vacation!!!!
Just got the bag and am so, so happy. I wanted something very lightweight with a long strap for cross body use that had a secure spot for my passport, boarding passes, etc. This is it !!!!!! It hangs beautifully and is big enough for everything I need when I step out of the hotel for a day of vacation activities. The turnlock keeps my credit cards and passport super safe and very easy to get to.....no fussing around and keeping others waiting. It is so light I'm sure it won't be a bother wherever I go. True, all man made materials but they look great! I didn't want to take one of my expensive bags to get all scraped up while traveling. Plus, the leather bags are so much heavier and I don't need any extra weight while I'm pulling luggage or carrying shopping bags. I love it !!!!
Cute Summer bag!
I just got this today and started using it already. It is nice for a summer bag. Loads of organization, light weight and has a colorful lining,making it easy to find things fast. Nice idea also to have the extra wristlet come with it.
MY SECOND TIGNANELLO, THIS ONE IN TOMATO…
…AND A PERFECT TOMATO IT IS… The size, the color, the construction, the layout, the materials, and more… I love this bag; it is the perfect size when not wanting to carry a heavy load…’ just the essentials, m’am… just the essentials’. In addition, even this small load can be worn across the body for balanced weight and additional ease of wear, and the turn-lock closure is a plus, plus, along with the back zip, the slip pockets, the double zip entry, and the ID holder for six card slots. Another plus, plus is the wristlet fit for inside or outside the central bag, and then an adjustable strap to boot! This is a beautiful, ripe tomato winner! :-) Thanks, Tignanello; and has anyone ever asked the vendor representative if she has a history of being a relative of yesteryear actress Inger Stevens?
No leather here.
Price is high for all man made materials. I dissipoints me that you use large amounts of PVC in you bags.
