<Problem analysis of the product>
   It has an inconvenient clasp
   It is too heavy
   The front cover is too long and the inside cover panel is too high

<Consumer review_26-year-old woman>
   The clasp is not gorgeous and is inconvenient

   The colour is awful
   Having just one way to open it is not good
   The inside packing area should be divided
   The size of the bag is unuseful
<Suggestions>
   Add an opening zipper instead of a button for easy opening
