The Kuba Makeup Bag can be used for just about anything. It could be used as a pencil case, for toiletries, and even hold electronics. I like the sturdy feel of it and the cultural design. I keep it within my toiletry bag as separate bag to hold my make and nail supplies. There's plenty of room to keep a good number of items in it.
The zipper is 11" - the pencil case itself is 4.5" at its widest and 11.5" at its longest. It is interfaced for structure and durability.
Thanks for stopping by - do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions.
