The bronze/brass studs and zippers give the bag the more edgy look I was after, more fitting for an artist/author than a businesswoman.I'm happy to say that the interior is acceptable to me. However, this bag is very heavy with all these things in it. After ordering and returning 6 bags...I'm pleased with this very practical, nice looking work bag. It is padded on the sides with a crashpad on the bottom, so if need be, I could put a laptop in there without a case. Although the colour is striking, the fabric is extremely poor quality.
