This tote is quilted with a small pocket inside between the straps. It had a snap closure and the straps are canvas that go all the way to the bottom. It does stand by itself. It has very rich colors in gold, black berry, orange, green and other colors too numerous to mention. It is 10" tall, 14-3/4" at the widest point, with a 5" bottom and the straps have a 10" drop. Just a fun tote bag I made myself! Washable.
