Beautiful and soft. The straps are super long, which I love. It gives you a lot of flexibility on where you want the bag to hang, plus you get tails! I use it as an everyday purse, but it has lots of room for tossing in a wrap, book, snack, diapers, whatever else you might need. Plus, the strap is wider than a normal purse strap over your shoulder, so it spreads the weight out nicely.
