Tote bag fans are racing to Marks & Spencer to get their hands on a bag that has received a plethora of five star reviews thanks to its 'classic' design and 'expensive' finish. The Faux Leather Woven Tote Shopper costs £49.50 and is available in two gorgeous shades- black, for a more sophisticated look, and cream, which is going to be lovely in the summer.

With a generous size (a height of 33 cm, width of 60 cm and depth of 14 cm), the bag features a stunning woven design made out of polyurethane – although many shoppers have praised how much it looks like real leather. Perfect for days when you need a larger bag for the office or days out, this tote contains a large compartment that has a removable pouch as well as a slip pocket to keep all of your essentials safe.

The timeless style of this bag, which has a magnet fastening, makes it a staple for any and every season – it's no wonder M&S fans are snapping it up fast, with it being sold numerous times in the last few days.

Fashion fans love the bag's spacious compartments and woven finish

The bag has also received a near perfect 4.5 star rating on Marks & Spencer's website, with customers sharing their admiration for the 'quality, classy shoulder bag' with one sharing how its a bag that "feels like it will last forever". What more could you want?

Another shopper applauded the hit British store and raved: "Very lovely bag. Cannot wait to really use it in the summer months, can see myself taking it on holiday. I have already had compliments. Love love love this bag the inside holder is huge, will be purchasing the beige, great value for money. The inside holder is really and big as well. I bought a tote in River Island – more expensive no inner bag and not as nice on the eyes as this bag. Well done M&S."

A third shared: "Bought this a month ago and have had lots of use out of it…very classy and holds a good lot of shopping! Easily fits over shoulder when necessary to have hands free! Inner zipped compartment inside is a bonus and great to know purse,phone etc are safe!"

One gave it the thumbs up, recommending it as the perfect bag for "any busy woman".

Despite these stellar reviews, some found the bag a little "too heavy for me", causing them to return it. Another was in agreement over this detail, and revealed: "Really useful classy shoulder bag. Holds work stuff. Only given it 4 rating, because it feels a bit heavy…" That being said, they added: "but feels like it will last forever. Also there's a zipped secure inner pocket which I love."

Tote bags are a gorgeous trend at the moment in which to invest – no surprise that the high street is bursting with them. If you love the woven look but aren't a fan of this particular M&S bag, River Island has an alternative style for £45 – which is also available in cream. Get it here. For something that's certain to be a more summery staple, Mint Velvet's Woven Tote Bag in brown and tan looks like the perfect beach bag and has a straw-woven look. Costing £129, it's available here from John Lewis. If dark chocolate brown is more your colour, you'll love this spacious Allington Straw Tote Bag from All Saints, £119.

If you've fallen in love with this M&S tote, however, as have many fashion fans, get it here for £49.50.
