I just bought a few new things from Thirty-One, and so far am very pleased with my purchases! The first thing I bought was a medium tote. It is well made, has a gorgeous pattern, and works great for holding sweaters in my closet! It can also hold a LOT of stuff if you needed to transport snacks, craft supplies, etc! The second thing I bought was the Thermal Tote in the cute Forest Friends pattern! I was a little worried this would be a little too small to fit a lot in it, but it has a ton of room to bring my lunch to work! I love it and it is so cute! I definitely recommend their products. Some of the totes can get a little expensive but sometimes they have sales or deals!

I purchased a now discontinued bag only to have the nylon lining pull away from the zipper after only a few months. I later purchased the cross body bag to have the lining rip out in the same place in even less time. I did get the bag replaced to have the nylon lining rip out once again after less than 2 months. Obviously, the nylon lining is extremely cheap and continuing to replace the bag is not going to solve the issue.
I came across your article today and I would like to know if you personlly have used both versions, the cheap and Thirty One? I’ve been with the company 6 years now and have to say every penny I’ve spent has been worth it. I still have the first two Large a Utility Totes I bought 6 years ago and use them. Just because it’s cheaper that doesn’t mean it is better. Thirty Ones products actually hold up pretty well. I admit like any other company we do have some problems from time to time but they are good at helping customers fix these issues. You have a 90 day warrrenty and sometimes even after that they help.
I purchased a lunch thermal tote (playful parade pattern) and a zip-top organzing utility tote. I use the utility tote for carrying files and my laptop when I work in schools, but I use my lunch bag all the time! I get lots of compliments on it - instead of having my initials which is trendy right now, I got my name embroidered on it in Hot Pink. It's perfect for me... professional but fun. At first I thought it was too big, but now I love the size. I can carry lunch, dinner, and snacks in it and everything stays pretty cold because it's thermal. Just Awesome!
Aubrey – I have two 31 Utility Totes, two bags from Amazon and one from Walmart. The bags from Amazon are cheaper than 31 bags but are every bit as good in terms of quality. Further, the Walmart bag cost the least but, in my opinion, is the best bag. The only downside is there aren’t many fabric choices. Also, I had another 31 bag that I bought as a work bag, it was expensive and it fell apart. I do like the 31 bags (I think the fabric is pretty) but I would rather save money.
I purchased a soft thermal bag..after little / non heavy use several months later the liner ripped away from the stitching along the zipper. The company claimed to not be able to find my sale from the rep I purchased it from, and said they would not replace it, but offered me a coupon with a % off to purchase something else. REALLY? Why would I want to purchase another over priced cheap product? Even worse...the rep I did purchase it from, is willing to pay to have it resewn, and its not even her responsibility to fix this companies product! I was also told that if you purchase their products as a cash & carry item from a rep, they wont warranty that either! NOW...this company knows most of their reps, purchase products to sell at Vendor events. What a cheap way to get out of replacing cheaply made products..let a bunch of reps make you $$$ by selling your products, treat them bad, treat the people purchasing your products even worse. How long before you close your doors? SOON I hope, so you will quit cheating the consumer.
One of the easiest ways to stay organized is with a fantastic bag. With choices that range from totes to purses and wallets, Thirty-One bags can get absolutely every aspect of your life in order. The bags are available in a huge variety of patterns and colors, so they work with any wardrobe and any outfit. The material is also easy to clean, so you never have to worry about spills. Whether you need help keeping things in order for work or at home, there is a bag that will work. Thirty-One diaper bags have pockets that can help you separate clothes and extra diapers from formula and snacks. And when the kids are out of diapers, the bag holds up long enough that you can repurpose it for another phase of life. Thirty-One's affinity for organizational tools does not end with diaper bags and totes. Thirty-One cosmetic bags can keep your makeup and skin care in order either at home for daily use or for those weekend trips. With the large selection of Thirty-One bags on eBay, you can find both the latest designs and discontinued styles that knowledgeable sellers can still offer.
I actually use this tote as a diaper bag, I have two children in diapers and it really works great for that. Aside from the way I use it, I think it's an over all great bag. A few issues: the elastic pockets on the sides seem to have lost their tension already, I don't put anything large or heavy in them to cause this, also the pocket in the back.. Wish it was larger, I don't really see the point of the zipper in the bottom of the pocket. The only other issue I have is the straps, wish they had some sort of padding on them, they tend to be a little hard on your hands if you're carrying anything heavy.
I will always love 31 I love some of the prints they come out with and if you just order them as they are the prices are not to bad but if you do want their signature products with your monogram initials or whatever on them it does jump the price considerably. I don’t order as much as I did when they were new but I have to say the large totes are super handy and really last a long time they are put together well and made to last!

I have been obsessed with Thirty-One products for a few years now, and I love the styles and many of their patterns. The only downside is that the products are made in (sadly) China, and that strongly disappoints me (especially for the kinds of prices they charge). If Thirty-One was made here in the States, then they might would get more business and support. However, I own several Thirty-One items that have been really good (and still use them quite a bit). I especially love their zipper pouches (both small and large) and Large Utility Totes. A few of my items have developed flaws (two of my LUTs have cracks on the insides and a couple of my purses have zippers that have turned rusty-looking), but it's nothing very serious. That being said, I will continue to purchase from them. Just wish they made their products in the U.S.A....

I have 4 products that I have used intermittently. By no means were they used every day and by no means were they harshly used. One product was barely used. I now have 2 out of 4 products that are failing. The inside plasticy lining of my very small utility bag is cracking and disintegrating. Obviously a poor plastic material that does not hold up. Which is fine, then don't charge me a fortune if it is going to fall apart. I have an organizing tote with zipper, hardly used. Used it the most for one week at the beach. The entire seam has separated leaving a gapping hole in the bottom. The bag is useless now. Contacted customer service and was told only 90 days. Your products should be expected to hold up more than 90 days, especially for the price. Will not buy again. I have had LLBEAN and Lands End bags warrantied FOREVER and I have used Vera Bradley purses and bags, every single day for years with only wearing of the material noticed on the handle. Mind you, I said "wearing down" not completely falling apart or broken! This company is a cheap, trendy home party that makes very poor quality products that are sold at high prices so all the people in the chain can get their profit.

This is another great plugin from HorNet!!! I tried it today and I was very surprised by its very useful function… The automatic eq function you can set and then turn it off and set your eq to taste further…But…HorNet did it again: Making outstanding plugins for an outstanding low price…Thanks a lot HorNet!!
