Radley Crazy Dogs Foldaway Tote
Advantages: Looks, use, practicality
Disadvantages: None really for a shopper
I've always loved Radley bags and I have a few leather ones, and a purse, but I always used canvas bag for life type shoppers when out and about. The only problem with the canvas bags is that they are quite bulky and cumbersome even when they are empty, and therefore I can't carry them in my handbag and have to leave one in the car.
So I was really pleased to receive this Radley Crazy Dogs Foldaway Tote as a little birthday gift, given that I love Radley and it has a pretty pink and beige pattern all over it. Foldaway bags used to have a bit of an old fashioned granny type stigma attached to them but these days with everyone using reusable bags and lovely modern bags like this available, I'm proud not to use plastic bags whenever I can.
The Radley Tote comes in a circular zip-up case much like a purse, when the zip is undone and the bag is pulled out, the little case is attached to the handle, which means you can never lose it! The bag itself is very well made and though the material is quite thin, it is splash proof, and it does hold plenty of shopping, I've carried a bottle of milk along other things in here and the seams are strong. The handle is a great size for a shopper - you can carry it like a regular carrier bag but you can also throw it over your shoulder, too, meaning it's great for a stand in gym bag, or to carry a change of clothes or shoes, or books for college and so on.
The great thing about this Radley Tote bag apart from the looks, is that it folds down small enough to go in your handbag and therefore it really is there when you need it. So handy. I know that £18 can seem expensive for a shopper (my husband advises he purchased it from the Radley shop in Manchester's Trafford Centre, you can also get them online and at John Lewis, Debenhams and House of Frasier), but it really is a lovely bag, well made and will last a very long time even with regular use. I do highly recommend the Radley Crazy Dogs Foldaway Tote, it's had plenty of use for me and I plan to buy my mum one for Christmas.
A five out of five for a lovely practical bag from Radley!
Summary: A great, modern shopper which would make a lovely gift
