Sometimes we come across bags with printing errors. Rather than fill up the landfill, since the bags are completely usable, just not up to the printing quality we expect of our products, we're making them available to our earth-conscious customers who love deals! We got a bunch of these Forest tote bags with printing that looks like the last image in this listing. The bags themselves are perfect, but some of the printing is smudged and blurry.

Pack your hiking shoes and your forestry journal and set off for botanical adventures. If the weather’s against you, this bag is equally at home in the library, where it’s sure to inspire deep thoughts on the life cycle of trees.

You may notice some irregularities in the material, this is natural in recycled canvas, since the collected material varies in content.

Here's a tote bag that's ready for all of your adventures. It’s fully reversible, so you’ve got options. Solid color on one side, printed on the other. Two bags in one. Wear the design on the outside, declaring your passion to the world, or flip it around for a quieter look. It’s built in the perfect proportions for a carry-all, so you can keep all the things you need inside the all the things you love. The zipper pocket on the solid side will keep your smaller things safe, and the shoulder straps are perfectly sized for over the shoulder or in-hand carry. Wear it on your next lecture, to the lab, or out in the field.

Beautiful and Functional

The tote is a little smaller than I was hoping, but it is still big enough to take to the beach and park. The zipper pocket on the inside is perfect, and the straps are just long enough to put over the shoulder.

Cute and roomy bag

As a seconds, you really couldn't tell that there was anything wrong with the print. Strong and the little zipper pocket is helpful for holding keys and a wallet. I use it as a purse mostly.

Forest Tote

This tote is made from thick, sturdy canvas with a great forest scene on the outside and a beautiful green inside. It's a good size as well. I'm very happy with my purchase.

Durable and adorable bag

This bag has served me well, I really love it. I bring it to lab and everywhere I go. The straps are strong and even though this one is a misprint, it still looks beautiful.

This bag is perfect! I really don’t know why it’s marketed as a seconds item. I can’t find anything wrong with it. The printing is very pretty, the bag itself is roomy and well made.
