The Montpellier Tote is a simple design with a few frontal folds, yet it commands that quiet sophistication that speaks volume about subtlety and style. Fits any occasion with understated class. Our favorite is the Etoupe Grey which is a special blend of purple, grey and orange. montpelier montpillier montpilier monpellier monpelier monpillier monpilier

Bag is the perfect size! Things don't get lost like they do in a big bag. The color is different- goes well with black and brown.
I love the shape of this beauty and details of pinching the leather at the top that gives the purse so much character. It’s so unique, classy, and the storage inside is unbelievable! Another must get!
Love the bag. Would you pls apply my discount to the new bag I just ordered, the Axelle. Have a happy 4th of July. Thank you.25
I love this bag! It is the perfect size for me-not too big or too small. I can fit my Brioude wallet, a cosmetic pouch, and my glasses case in it. Plus still have room for snacks or lunch items for work! The handles are just the right length for me too. It sits comfortably on my shoulder and ends up sitting on my side above the hips. Beautiful neutral color that will go with any outfit! Can’t wait for my next purchase!!!
Beautiful bag and easy to carry. I thought it had a hint of purple when I ordered it, however I don't see it. Otherwise it's a beautiful bag, fits everything I need, and I get a lot of compliments.
Love the bag.
I like the pockets in the bag.
Lovely, classic bag. Just the right size for me. Best of all, I live in Arizona, hot place. The height and firm bottom let’s me pack a water bottle in the inside without it falling over. The taupe color will go with anything!A++++
My bag is beautiful, but the lining is disappointing. the bottom of my bag feels as if it is a piece of cardboard. Don"t like reviewing in a negative manner, just thought the outside was to pretty not to have a beautiful inside. Fondly, Peggy Schenk firstname.lastname@example.org
This is my first time to get one from MDBM. Wow, it is really what I looking for. Im a bit picky but this bag is for me. The color is the exactly the same as the website. The size is just perfect as a daily back. Not that big and not that small. I can put eveything for my days except for like laptop. Small book, cosmetics, cell phone and so on. The lether look gorgeous and tecture of it feels soft but not too much soft. Anyway I love it and I am thinking to buy another one again.
As with other purchases I am very pleased.
Fabulous color and size
I love it! It’s very roomy and comfortable to carry! The color is beautiful and the quality is wonderful! I would recommend it to anyone!
This tote bag is the perfect size and the leather is so soft!! I’m very impressed with the quality of this bag!
Not the color it looked like to me. No paperwork included on how to return or excange.
When my first handbag arrived I couldn’t wait to carry it. This one is still in my closet the protective bag in which it was shipped. I like the style and quality of the second bag I ordered however the color is more mauve than the picture and I’m not fond of the very smooth and slightly shiny finish.
The bag is beautiful. Leather and craftsman is so good. Unfortunately, I ordered the wrong style and I have trouble getting my hand in and retrieving my wallet, phone etc. because of the pleats in the design. I will happily pay to ship this bag back to the UK if you will kindly send me a return label. I meant to order the purse with one handle that you show in the pictures with the models. I am looking forward to hearing from you! Sincerely, Christie Nielsen 13603 Colter Rd Caldwell, ID. 83607 (208) 440-4400 email@example.com
Perfect weight and I love the two pockets for phone and sunglasses.
I have not purchased one yet, but I love the bag!
I love the style, the solid sides and bottom. The size is just right. Great quality!
I love this bag. It's well made, classic, and useful. I especially like the two pockets on the inside. They are perfect for sliding my phone and sunglasses into and out of, when I need them quickly. The bag holds more than enough, and also matches everything. I recommend it.
I ordered in January and never received it for our daughter's birthday!
Love this bag. Color is great, size is just right. Have had many compliments on this bag. Will definitely be purchasing from this company again. They have great customer service.!
Love your handbags. I bought this one first. It is so pretty and well made. I then bought the Cholet and I love it too.
I love this bag its very well made. Even my mother took notice, and she has very discerning taste. I have purchased several others and have not been disappointed. Thank you all
Such a graceful bag. A unique color and style. It sits up without falling over if it is heavy. I pack all sort of items in it an it doesn't look bulky. I am so glad I got this bag.
This is my second purchase and my first purse is really well made. On this purse the stitching is coming apart on the side seam. Disappointed because I love the color.

It doesn’t look like the pic in size. Much disappointed
I ordered this and received it and it is not to my satisfaction. I received information from you on returning it with a refusal to pay return shipping costs even though your product is unsatisfactory. I will not order again from your company and frankly will go out of my way to make sure your poor customer service is known. Stephanie Pejic
Did not like the color. Wish I had chosen a different color. But the bag is well made.
The bag was a Christmas gift for a really good friend. And, I was so happy when she told me how much she likes it. It is beautiful. The funny thing was that somehow I neglected to say it was a gift from me! So, her husband had to contact you to find out who sent the bag. She carries her new bag every day. And I love that it is handmade. So glad I discovered your company.
I love the design, but it’s even too heavy when it’s empty.
This bag is absolutely gorgeous. It is exactly what I was looking for... very efficient, plenty of space. It adds a very sophisticated touch to one's appearance. Highly recommend.

I was so disappointed in the bag I ordered. I was expecting a bag that was soft & anything but stiff it does not open wide enough to reach in & get something out infact my hands are in pain most of the time, having to reach in to the very stiff leather bag is to difficult w/stiff sore hands. I had been so excited to get my new bag for a Christmas present from my Gaby Girl (she is a Yorkie pup). So what do I do about my bag? Can I return the bag for either a credit for the cost of my bag or a credit to purchase a bag in the future from your company. I am sure that if I am able to order a bag that is softer & not stiff w/a opening that is also not stiff & wide enough that both my hands can fit in & not be so tight I am only able to put one hand in while the other trys to hold it open wide enough to fit my hand in w/o feeling pain. Mary L Clower (406) 220-2268 firstname.lastname@example.org
Love the look of the bag and the quality! My fault I did not pay attention to the size...I was hoping it would have been bigger. Also the pocket for my cell phone is too tight because my cell is in a case. Other than that, I do love the look and quality!
I love the bag. I got it 2 days ago. The moment my family member saw it she asked for the websute
Great gift!!!! Loved the quality & style and the accessories
I love this bag. It is my favorite. The color goes with everything and it’s large enough to carry my kindle as well as other important items. The leather is beautiful.
It holds my current project without losing anything.
I waited 6 months before I decided to purchase. I’m so glad did. It is certainly beautiful and large enough for me. I usually buy Dooney Bourke but their handbags are heavy and would hurt my shoulder. I love the lightness of this bag and the price is excellent.
beautiful bag, perfect size, well made
Im returning this bag
All is great with this bag
Love it Light weight not too big not to small.
I like the bag, but it's smaller than I expected. While it looks like a tote bag on the website, it's not the size of a typical tote. The color is also not what I expected. "Etoupe gray" seemed to have a gray tint in the photos, but this bag is actually a basic taupe and seems to be more appropriate for spring and summer. Buy this bag only if you're looking for a medium-sized handbag.
The bag is great but I don’t like the catch I wish it was stronger so we can close easier
It is a very nice bag and holds up well in the winter weather. I wish the shoulder straps were wider.
When I put my iPhone 10s on either I can’t close the bag. It was some what a struggle to snapped it. I decided to keep cuz it’s a hassle to return it.
I have several bags and have loved all of them. I was disappointed with this one. The leather is so stiff and not soft at all. I have worn it for several days and it is still stiff. The pictures make it look as a soft leather. Sorry, just did not like it.
I find the interior pockets to be a very strange proportion. Too narrow and deep so it’s hard to get to things. Also, there is no lining, just the back of the leather. So it is very stiff. The bag looked much cuter in the picture on line. Honestly, disappointed.
I have several of MDBM bags and this is the first one that I am not thrilled with because it is not soft leather at all. It is stiff, and even after wearing it for a week, it is still stiff as can be. Sorry...not the best one that I own.
This bag is lovely, supple leather that holds everything I need. I love the saddle color. It goes with all clothing choices, and frankly it could easily be a 4 season handbag. I have ordered a few of your handbags over the last few years, and I have never been disappointed.
It was much smaller than I hoped it would be! Compared to the other totes this one looks much cheaper in nature and I am disappointed with the look, size and feel. Anything i put in it makes the purse feel very heavy!! For the price of the bag I feel I could have gotten a much better bag I would have been happier with!!
Don’t like the feel of it and it doesn’t stay on your shoulder,would not Recommended
The bag itself is beautifully constructed but the color….Etroupe Grey. The color is nothing like on the website or other review photos… I could not even exchange for another color, customer service said it was final sale even though I offered to pay full price and give back this bag in Etroupe Grey. It is packed away in storage, never used. I have been an avid MDBM purchaser for years. This experience with customer service has lead me to find another source for unique quality leather bags and accessories
This bag is yet again a fabulous example of Maison Beauté de Marseille’s craftsmanship, style and beauty. I live on a tight budget and decided last year to wait and save to order a bag I’d been eyeing for months. That bag as well as the Montpellier will never go out of style yet is cutting edge design. The most gratifying part of these purchases are the incredible hand-made product that are quality, art and efficiency in what is a necessary tool for living. I am so grateful that MBdM exists in our 21st century world. Thanks to your ethic and output of beautiful work.
It is a beautifully made bag but entirely too heavy and big for me. Sorry I couldn’t return it.
This was an impulse buy and I was a bit sorry I ordered it. But when it arrived I changed my mind. Lovely colour and leather, holds lot and is comfortable to wear. Would recommend this bag.

I like the shade and size of my Montpelier bag, it’s just right! The gray color is great and matches a handmade bag I purchased over the summer. It’s my ‘go to’ bag these days… trying to decide if I need it in black or if I should try another color. This is my 2nd bag from mdbm.
Needed a larger bag and chose this one. I have several seasonal retail stores and often carry small items and extra coin rolls with me. This bag holds everything I need it to. I was afraid the straps weren't going to be strong enough, but they're holding up great. This is my second bag - can't wait to be able to carry the smaller one. I've recommended you to several friends.
Bought these as gifts in every color for all the special woman in our family and special friends. Got 2 for me also. Hard to decide which color. Loved them all. My daughter immediately changed to the etoupe grey purse. She loves love loves the smell size and color. Great purse and great company.
Great for a happy medium sized bag…not to big and not too small! Perfect. I have received lots of compliments on it and I love the purse!!
Love this bag. Especially the pleats! Color is beautiful. Perfect size.
Even though it was on clearance it was shown with a canvas zippered insert. Which I’m assuming wasn’t part of the sale. Also, it came well packaged but it looked like it had been stored squashed flat. I’ve had it stuffed with towels since it got it trying to get the huge dents out of the bottom corners. This is my third bag and I’ve also gotten a wallet. Loved the others. I’m keeping this one. Just looked like care wasn’t taken when it was stored. Tina
Made of leather, Smells like leather but doesn’t look or feel like leather. It looks plastic. I’m disappointed in that as I was looking for supple leather feel that ages fantastically! Give it a 4-5/10. Sadly.
This WAS my very first bag, and I promptly ordered another one after verifying the quality, fine leather, craftsmanship, and styling were everything as promised. This bag holds a generous amount of mid-sized items and is so very comfortable on the shoulder. It stands up wherever placed and exudes quality and class. It is simply a lovely bag.
Beautiful color that can be worn with warms or cools surprisingly.
My favorite purse!. Beautiful quality and color, and I love the bucket design with no dividers - everything is easy to find.
I want to love this, but instead, I will share feedback in the hopes to improve a potentially awesome bag. 1. My normal sized phone barely fits in the pocket on the inside of the purse only if I remove the case first. 2. The way the strap hang makes it difficult to get in and out of the purse. The straps are heavy and a little awkward. 3. The "mouth" of the bag is slightly too narrow and inflexible to allow you to stick your hand in and easily access something, especially if it's at the bottom of the bag or even in the inside zipper pocket. 4. The grey...I just don't care for how it looks & it was hard to judge from the pics online. 5. I wish it wasn't so heavy....one of the heaviest in the collection at almost 2 lbs, I found. WITH THAT SAID.....I am going to exchange this for one that will suit me better. It is a cool design and the material looks luxurious, but it's just not functional, for me. I also got dark green hand bag that is light-weight yet sturdy, lussious leather and equipped with pockets, zipper conpartments, and sections in a classic quality fabric.
It was a gift and the person said it would be great for spring!!!
I was looking for a big bag to replace the one that died and this one came closest to my needs. I wish it was a tad bigger with a bit more length in the straps. I always put the bag over my shoulder and too short straps don’t work over winter coats
The bag did not work for me so I returned it but they said they never received it so I did not get the credit. Very disappointed!!!
LOVE this bag! I'm serious about bags, whether they're totes, purses, clutches, or crossbodies, and the Montpellier Folds tote, which I purchased in brown, stands out. The color is delicious, and the size is perfect--not too big, so that it's impossible to find anything, but not so small that I can't carry all my essentials (wallet, phone, makeup, datebook, keys, etc., etc.). Five stars for this one!
Looks like rubber. disappointed
Well made. Good leather. A handsome piece.
Returned bag and wallet. Received by your company weeks ago but no refund as yet!
I have found a new love. Instead of shoes, it's now MDBM bags! The beauty, quality and price make for an outstanding value. Absolutely cannot go wrong with these bags!
A beautiful bag with rich, vibrant color. Love it!!
I ordered 2 bags, got the 2nd one tried to find the 1stone but never could... nAy help would be appreciated.
I gave this bag as a gift to my sister. She was thrilled as she’d looked at it for a while, lusting after it. She was thrilled. It’s perfect for her work and travels.
I love the color. Goes with everything. I don't like a large bag so this is the perfect size. I just wish that one of the inside pockets was big enough for my iphone plus size phone. But overall I recommend getting this bag.
I did NOT get the color I ordered!!! I was extremely upset when I did it get the new color that you guys went on and on about!!! Instead I got the brown one not the gray one and I’m disabled so I can’t return it and get the right color!
I love this bag. I bought it because I love the look and the size and the distinct color. I usually don't spend much on a handbag, and I use for years. This time I decided to get something I would truly enjoy. I think the quality and style are priced well. I'm very happy with this purchase.
Is this even real leather?? It smells awful. The quality is not soft. Or nice. It’s cheap looking. I feel I’ve been scammed. Terrible bag. The zipper inside is of low quality. The pockets are not a good size. I have never been so disappointed in an online purchase.
Bought this one and the grey!! It went home with my daughter!
Stunning, excellent workmanship!! Good thing I bought two, my daughter grabbed it up as soon as I opened it!!
The bag has good design styling but the leather is not tan brown as advertised. It is really a burnt orange color that makes the bag look cheap. I will probably not use it much as I don't really have items that go with orange. I was looking for a real saddle brown leather color. I am disappointed.
I love the quality of the handbag. It is definitely more of a handbag, NOT a tote. I was a bit disappointed in the size of it. I expected it to be much bigger since it was titled a "tote," which it certainly is not. It's a nice size handbag, though. It also is a bit more on the "orange," side of tan; rather than a cognac tone - maybe this will darken over time.
Is not bag as I wanted, the smell of the leather is super annoying, the pockets inside are to small, overall not happy with this bag
My all time favorite bag! Love the size and quality. Even with everything in it it still feels light. I love the look and feel of it. I use it everyday! It has plenty of room for what I need. I don't know what to say other than that this bag is fabulous.
Not pleased with the leather for the price.
This bag is a beautiful pinkish taupe, just stunning and so unique. It holds a lot of items including my iPad without having a very large footprint. I don’t know how you do it, but I love this bag!
Great bag overall. excellent quality. Very useful, and I love the size. The color is unusual but really useful. Small gripe: the bottom seams of the bag can be felt through the base that sits in the bottom of the bag. They may soften with use. However, the base piece is very loose and things easily go underneath it. I’m constantly taking the base out to dig underneath to find things that slipped under. A slightly larger, sturdier, better fitting base would solve this issue.
Perfect size and shape! I use it every day. It has just enough detail to make it interesting and people comment on it all the time.
Leather quality less than expected, it arrived with a strange smell (?) once sired out, I donated it to a local charity
I gave this bag as a gift. The recipient loves, loves , loves the color, the size and the shape. It is lightweight and great for travel. Another homerun.
I would have loved it if it had pockets or one pocket on the outside. Inside pocket too deep and narrow. Quality of leather was good and the color is great.
I was disappointed in the small size of the inside pockets. My iPhone 8 did not fit and there really wasn’t any other place to put it for convenience. I like the color and shape of the bag though. Right now I am using my old bag because it has more pockets for keys and phone etc.
The color is not what I ordered. I would like to exchange it for the color I ordered. Thank you.
