Day-Timer is known for its quality - at least by my family and co-workers. I've owned a few of their products and have only been happy with them. From planners to this lovely tote, I've been happy with them. This tote, by the way, is absolutely gorgeous and I love it. It's really sturdy and can carry the weight of your day to day carry alongs. I've carried my tablet and laptop in it as well as my wallet, etc. on business trips. It's great.
