Faux Lizard Totes, Set of Two is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 160.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone wants to know where I got this tote! Great quality - This tote has held up for years carrying heavy items. Everyone loves it because it sits flat on the ground and is very stylish. We now have two sets in the office for schlepping to various events.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible odor - Threw these things in the trash I bought this set thinking it would be a great way to organize our family's various files on the main floor in something prettier than a file box. But so not worth the terrible odor these emit. At first we didn't know where the smell was coming from but we soon realized it was coming directly from these totes that were in two totally different areas of the house. I don't know what these things are made of that they would emit such a potent smell. Not even worth the trouble of trying to call and get our money back my husband threw them both right into the trash. Very disappointing especially now that I see there have been so many complaints from others with the same exact problem. Frontgate should listen and do something improve the product when so many of your customers have reported the same issue. If you can't improve the quality of this product stop selling it. This type of odor is not a small issue it makes your product unusable. I have never written a negative review in my life, this is a first for me but I hope it will give others pause before purchasing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love the color. But horrible odor I have eyed these for a long time and finally ordered. I love the color (green), matches my office decor perfectly. But the odor is unbearable. I kept them airing out in garage a couple of days. I would spray with febreze daily. All that was happening was the odor started stinking up the garage. So now I move them outdoors to air out during the day then put back in garage at night. I have been fighting the smell and airing for about a week. I read all reviews hoping to find what someone successfully did to kill the odor. I don't want to give up as the color is perfect and I need these in the office. But if smell doesn't dissipate, they will not be usable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly surprised I purchased this product with doubt because a lot of the reviews said that they had an older to them so I spoke to a very helpful representative and purchase the red. when it came I was pleasantly surprised because there was no older these are very fantastic and I would purchase again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just okay Although the descriptions says there are two sizes, I thought when I ordered a pair, they'd be the same size. Also, they have a very bad smell; not just like real leather but more like a barn. I'm hoping that will go away with time, but I've had them airing out for 4 days (even used Fabriz) and can still smell it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Oh, the smell Love the design but could not take the smell. Did everything possible to “air” it out but did not work
Date published: 2019-02-22
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy and good for files We had to adjust the wire racks but now the files are finely aligned. Also the handles were stiff and got in the way in putting papers into the file. FYI, I tied them down

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Faux Lizard Totes work great! I've been using my totes for more than 2 years and I still get compliments on them and people ask me where I got them. They really help with organizing files on the go and they look great walking into a presentation. I am very sensitive to smell and had zero smell. Maybe only some of them have it?
Date published: 2019-01-18
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Whoa! FUMES!!! Faux leather is right! WOW, the fumes coming off these are TERRIBLE. You'll need to put them outside for several days until the smell dies down. They do look nice for what they are but too expensive for something that is not even real leather...just PU over thick poster board. I would wait until they are on sale if you decide to purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice file holder, no smell! I ordered this set, one letter size, one legal size, in black. No smell to speak of. My files hang fine in the provided brackets. They obviously don’t slide like in a traditional file cabinet but they are portable and better than my previous solution!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from TOTES I read reviews about an odor and received my order and there is a strong cheap leather odor. I did not realize that you got one big, one small was disappointed, but will keep it. For the money they do not have the quality I expected.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lovely totes, but.... The handles prevent easy use as they are stiff and in the way. They don't fold away. Secondly, the files do not fit in the boxes properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Tote Really do like the totes. I like that there are 2 sizes (going to give one as a gift).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just What I Needed! These are very nice, and very sturdy. I put them to work immediately. My only disappointment was that the blue color is darker than the photo, hence the 4 stars instead of 5. But they are very nice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased! i hesitated in purchasing these totes, because of the negative reviews about the smell. My "coffee" totes came today and they smell like leather.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does anyone know if one color smells more than the others? I really want to get these, but I am afraid the smell won't go away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for travel! I needed a portable file to travel and this has filled the need. The handles allow easy carrying and portability.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible smell I will be returning these for one reason only and that is the horrible smell they give off. No one can even guess at what it is but it smells toxic and has actually caused headaches in our small office. Overall they are exactly what I needed but they are impossible to have anywhere near us. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Faux Lizard totes Just the perfect item to organize your important papers! I leave it in the hall closet in case of emergency. Grab and go!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great look Another reviewer had mentioned that the smell was very strong and when I received mine, I had to actually air them outside for a week to finally get the smell out. Very strong odor. Love the totes but the smell is awlful.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lovely, BUT... the two black Faux Lizard Totes I bought arrived on time, but upon opening the box, there was a really offensive odor that still remains. :( I have tried the following: aired them outside for one entire day, turned them upside down over a/c vents for 3 or 4 days each (full air blowing inside each tote), lined the inside with dryer sheets, placed them in room under a ceiling fan whirling for 2 days, removed dryer sheets and now have them sitting out in a room to air out for an additional week +. They STILL have a bad odor and I don't know how much longer it will last. This is VERY disappointing! I'm now considering sprinkling baking soda in them or placing paper towels soaked in vinegar in the bottoms. If the odor subsides enough I can use them, they'll probably be good for my intended use. The construction quality is better than any others I could find with the same file capacity. PS I am not hyper-allergenic and I do not have hyper-sensitivity to odors. This is the first time in decades ordering online that I've received products that couldn't be rid of odors. But, I need these totes, so I'm not giving up. Especially since I discarded their shipping carton and returning would be difficult. Bummer!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great totes, but what a smell... I so wanted to keep these totes because they looked great and functional; however, I just could not tolerate the odor. Kept the open box in a well ventilated area for awhile to see if the odor would dissipate, but it didn't. Sadly, had to return it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great look and construction Perfect for those files that need portability. Suggest handles that go down out of the way.
Date published: 2018-07-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super useful! I love these for organizing. My only wish would be for the different sizes to be able to be purchased individually!

I have read several reviews regarding the odor emitted from these storage files. I plan to order a few, however, I do not want to experience the same issue. Please be honest and advise what has been done to correct this issue.

Thank you for your interest in the Set of Two Faux Lizard Totes. This item should not have a bad odor; however, leather items can absorb the smell of shipping material and may smell slightly when first unpacked.

Want to buy these but is the deal about the smell? And is it from one particular color?

Asked by: AbPierce
Unfortunately that is not true. The odor does not dissipate. It remains just as potent many weeks after being opened even when put in large open areas with good ventilation. Most of the reviewers state many attempts to try and get odor to go away. I wish Grandinroad would listen to so many customers who have been dissatisfied with the poor quality of this product and took the time to write reviews saying how intollerable the odor is and how it clearly does not go away.
