Hello, I have a question that I cannot seem to find an answer for on Google. Does a cloth handbag (i.e., Fossil with a nice, thick, multiple-strand, braided leather handle and a heavyweight, textured, very light tan color cloth bag count as "straw"?? In other words, would it be appropriate to carry this bag during March in New York City? I realize I can do whatever I want, "I am woman" and all that. But what is the "rule" does anyone know? THANK YOU!
