I received my new Cara bag yesterday. This is my first Mulberry bag and I am very pleased. Nice details, wonderful leather, and overall a very nice bag!
Opinions on the Cara bag. Very cute bag with great lines PLUS! The plus part is the backpack straps. They are a wonderful extra! Comfy fit when wearing the straps. Mine are the canvass straps so they stay nicely on. I do wonder if the leather straps stay on as well?
I will say, this is a smaller bag- in size- but due to the shape- it does fit a lot. I would think the mini would be very tiny though.
Overall- I really like this bag! I have only used it a half day. And I am not normally a backpack bag person but this is a great way to try it! And if I find it doesn't work well for me- I can change the straps to a shoulder strap! Love that!!!

Love it. It's really nice. Thinking about making this my first Mulberry as well. Trying to decide between the quilted and the natural leather. :biggrin:

I like the 'boxy' shape and it looks like it fits a decent amount in. Im not a backpack fan but I think it looks good used with the shoulder strap. Enjoy her, you will never forget your first mulberry

Gorgeous first choice! I like the canvas straps - I think that canvas straps look far better cross body when wearing leather jackets, so another plus!!

I love the canvas straps. I don't have a store nearby so I can't compare them to the leather ones, but the canvas straps are very easy to wear. I put them on to make cross body and the straps feel fine- not sure about all day use but they do work. I am really just enjoying the backpack straps with this bag. I'm not sure I want to wear it any other way right now!!! The details are really nice. This is my first Mulberry but I am sure it won't be my last!!!

So far, I have used it handheld, but I have to say, those backpack straps are handy! I have just swinged it on my back and went- by one strap! Perfect!

What a gorgeous bag. I'm waiting until the oxblood comes back in tstock, I will then decide which colour I want. Any chance any of you Cara owners could put a picture of what she looks like as a backpack? Many thanks x

I actually really liked the small cara when seeing it url! didn't try it as a backbag, but I would def. imagine myself carrying it as a tote if not anything else. lets see the discounts in christmas ;)

//edit

you chose a great colour :smile:
