Generously sized, this is the perfect tote for those who need to carry more than just a wallet or keys. A 16” zipper opening means it can fit your 13” laptop, so it’s a great work bag! This is often used as a carry on when travelling, as a diaper bag (for both mom and dad), or just as a large purse for everyday needs.
Field tan waxed canvas; brown leather.
Waxed canvas is a durable, beautiful, historical, and water resistant fabric that develops a well-worn and comfortable patina over time. As the fabric ages, the patina deepens and transforms into a leathery/suede appearance, enhancing its appearance and creating its own personality.
Two exterior pockets on the front allow for an easy place to slip items like your phone, transit pass, airplane tickets and passport. There are four interior pockets; one small pocket placed near the top of the bag for easy access to items like chapstick, keys, or a credit card. On the other side, there are two medium-sized pockets and a slot for a pen.
These long water buffalo leather handles are specifically designed to allow you to put the purse on your shoulder by simply bending your elbow, rather than having to slide the handles up your arm with your other hand. The length also allows comfort under your arm, when you’re bundled up in your winter jacket.
A full-grain cowhide leather adjustable leather strap will allow you to wear the tote across your body- perfect for cycling, or when you’ve got a heavy load. Not interested in using the strap? You can easily remove it with the clips! I have designed the top of the bag to fold over when you want to wear it across your body.
Avoid the black abyss with this bag: I have lined the tote with a 10oz ivory cotton canvas so that you can actually see what’s at the bottom. No more lost belongings!
All seams are double-stitched for extra strength and durability. There are two layers of waxed canvas reinforcing the bottom of the bag, where it will get the most wear. The bag is constructed out of 10.10oz waxed canvas from a US supplier- one that has been manufacturing waxed canvas since the 1800s.
Width: (top) 17.5" ; (bottom) 15"
Handles: 22+" x 5/8"
(This will differ slightly depending on the size of the hide I cut the handles from)
Strap: 43" x 1.5" (at its longest)
Waxed canvas is cotton that has been infused with a wax to make it water resistant and durable. Waxed canvas and leather should not be washed in the washing machine, put in the dryer, or dry cleaned. If your bag gets dirty, spot wash it with a damp sponge and air dry. Over time, you may want to rewax your bag, and it is recommended that you use Otter Wax brand Fabric Wax (and watch the instructional videos on their website), found at many retailers across the world. If you prefer a “leathery” waxed canvas look, a heavy application of fabric wax is recommended. I urge caution and practice before and during waxing the fabric yourself.
