Cath Kidston Book Bag
Advantages: Looks stylish, easy to carry, well made
Disadvantages: The cotton can stain and is not waterproof
As a little Christmas gift my Aunt bought me a Cath Kidston Book Bag. I am a big fan of Cath Kidston and all things made/designed by her and my family always buy me a few items at Christmas's and birthdays which I always love.
The book bag I was bought is in the English Rose pattern of which I also have a diary which matches very nicely. This is a nice pale blue background, with a variety of lovely large bunches of pink, blue and yellow flowers. I really like this pattern as it is one of her more classic looks and the flowers and leaves look hand painted. These colours seem to match everything and it looks very stylish and pretty. You can tell it is Cath Kidston from a mile away, there is also a Cath Kidston branding label on the front of the bag which is the distinctive white with red writing.
The bag has approximate dimensions of 38 cm height x 33 cm width and a depth of about 8 cm. This is a book bag rather than a shopper bag and as such is long and thin, but it can still hold a good amount of stuff and I often use it for shopping that I have picked up on my way home as well. The straps on this are nice and long and fit easily over a big winter coat. Inside the bag is lined with beige cotton and has a small pocket for smaller items to sit.
This book bag is made of 100 % cotton, which is slightly unusual because a lot of their bags have a waterproof outer layer that means they are wipe clean and rainproof. This will not keep your books and shopping dry and I have been caught in a rain shower before which is a bit of a shame. The cotton also gets a bit tainted/stained with use, but with mine being a blue colour this is not too much of an issue.
The bags are machine washable which makes life easier.
Overall I really like this bag and use it on a daily basis for taking my lunch and books to work. It is very strong and looks great and so overall will give this 4 stars. At full price these book bags cost £16, which is quite expensive for what is basically a piece of stitched cotton, but a lot of the styles are currently half price which makes them much better value. Available in Cath Kidston stores, John Lewis store and online.
Wash instructions : Use a 40 degree wash, wash separately, do not tumble dry, iron on reverse, re-shape whilst damp
