The sample submitted is described as style “Potion”. The item is a travel toiletry bag of a woven fabric with plastic backing. The exterior surface is of textile materials said to be of 51.2% cotton and 48.8% polyester fibers. The bag features a single textile lined interior with no additional features. The item is designed to contain toiletries/cosmetics during travel. It measures approximately 11”(W) x 6 ½”(H) with 3 ½” gussets. The top of the bag is secured by means of a zippered closure. Your sample is being returned as requested.
