Love, love, love this bag!I noticed many ads and store displays for designer totes, but they were all too busy, with magnets, little metal do-dads, fake locks, and the designer's initials all over them - not for me.So, one day, I searched Levenger's instead, and found the elegantly simple Fortunata Tote. I ordered it in "plum", a subdued purple gray that can go anywhere and still look businesslike.I am very pleased with the result. The bag is roomy, can accommodate two Avery loose-leaf notebooks, a newspaper or magazine, even a water bottle, and still look compact. The straps fit very comfortably over the shoulder, so the bag is easy to carry. This bag is sturdy, functional, and still looks good after a number of trips.I added a small "wristlet" wallet by Mundi in a matching purple color, attached to the tote straps via a black carabiner, in case I need to secure small items, such as credit cards or bills, but have yet to use it, as the top does zip shut.One reviewer mentioned a key fob on an older version.That's a great idea - I would like to see that added back in the future.

This is a very stylish bag and it was my go-to work tote, but after less than 4 months of use the handles have started to detach from the bag (the stitching is unraveling). I'm very disappointed in the quality of construction...particularly since this is my "look-good" bag rather than my "I need to haul everything but doesn't matter how it looks" tote and I purposely haven't loaded it down with heavy items.

I loved this bag at first, but it now slumps and isn't holding its shape. It's perfect if you limit use to carrying or hanging and not expect it to "stand."

This product was just the right combination of looking slim-lined and professional while also being able to carry quite a bit. It holds letter and legal files, iPads and iPhones, has pockets to hold other items so you don't necessarily have to carry a purse. It also "stands on its own" easily, which is a big plus. Purchased the dark eggplant, which was the right balance for me, colorful but professional. Bought it when it was on sale, which made it an even better value.

This is a bag that stays put navigating busy mid high halls crammed with jostling students and lockers. Not only does the Fortunata stay put perched on my shoulder but holds essentials folders, homework papers, iPad, iPhone comfortably. With the added wristlet (in grape to match) my personal effects are secure and easily obtained when needed. Definitely worth the price and sustains Levenger's reputation for quality!
Very Happy with It!

I love everything about it - functionality, color, straps, side pockets! It fits my laptop and note books perfectly. I'm very happy with it!
Finally treated myself
from San Antonio, TX
I have admired this bag for a long time; am very happy to have purchased it recently (during an amazing sale!). As a long-time user of Levenger leather goods, I expected it would be great quality, and I am not disappointed. Beautiful color and texture, perfect size, and handles long enough to go on the shoulder but not too long to hand-carry. Thank you Levenger for the many years of excellent products!
Great Addition to Professional Wardrobe
from Raleigh, NC
My husband bought this for me after our puppy ate my last laptop case. He urged me to pick something professional, and something that would last a lifetime. He picked out the grape color. It looks SO NICE, and my laptop fits into it nicely. It has outside slip pockets, and a few inside. I would like to see more pockets so I wouldn't need a purse.
This is the best over the shoulder leather tote bag I have ever purchased. It's large enough to fit my purse, computer and other essentials for travel on the airplane and around town. I highly recommend this lovely leather tote.
Best Purchase Ever
from Silver Spring, Maryland
I adore this tote. It's buttery soft leather is so nice to the touch and the inside and outside are clearly designed for organization. I love that it will hold all my necessities along with my iPad with room left over and there is no problem finding anything inside! Love, Love, Love...And, that I received a gift coupon with the purchase helped me make the decision to purchase this. You won't be sorry if you get one. I got the Grape and it's a beautiful shade of purple-my favorite color...
from Washington DC Metro area
I was surprised to learn that I can find small items at the bottom much easier than in the smaller bag I was using. I hope the quality, stitching and durability remains with this bag for years to come.
