The Classic Tote in 'Atlantic' S.E. - NEW
This variant is currently sold out.
Introducing our new release, the Classic Tote in Atlantic - Special Edition.
The essence of this bag is defined by a premium, Australian tanned leather combined with a simple and essential design. Our signature best selling bag, beloved by many since its launch in 2014, has been reworked into a special release featuring a distinctive tone of Navy blue leather. In addition, the design can be elevated with an additional pair of plaited leather straps as interchangeable handles.
Our design process always begins with a quest to define the elusive, yet inherently beautiful, nature of each leather hide. There is a story in the rhythm of the leather - in its markings and its personality. Seasoned eyes of the artisan evaluate the leather as it is rolled onto our workbench, hands skilfully run over the finish and grain.
Tracing out the beauty, one pattern at a time, we select the finest pieces for each Saddler & Co Tote bag to make the final cut.
The Classic Tote S.E. brings joy through beautiful appearance and everyday use.
There is an opulent structure to this new leather, tanned right here in Australia, while yet maintaining its honest appeal. The natural raw edges give a touch of authenticity and the waxed finish has excellent durability. This is indicative of a special piece that will not date with the passage of time.
Observe the interplay of sunlight and shadow as they evoke different features of the leather grain when you wear the bag. The colour is warm and full of depth. Take joy in the character, visible as each bag wears-in over time. Due to the scope of leather featured on each side of the bag, it often takes on a deep shine and reveals the complexity of leather itself.
The bag size is designed to function perfectly on a daily basis. There is room for a clutch, notebook, pens and phone, small laptop or office essentials. You may like to carry your lunch to work or keep your book at hand within a bag design which is both accessible and pleasingly simple.
Ordering the alternate set of leather shoulder straps will allow the Tote bag to shift its design focus. You will find the minimalist nature of the Plain straps gives a clean look, drawing focus to the leather characteristics of each bag. On the other hand, changing to the Plaited shoulder straps creates focus on the tactility of leather and reflects your individual fashion style, a lovely offset to the clothing you wear.
The unique aesthetic of the Classic tote bag is discovered through premium one-piece panels of leather and the feature buckles. The pattern allows the individual colour and leather grain to be fully experienced. In the process, we have avoided undue busyness such as external stitching lines or gaudy hardware. Rather each design is expertly crafted around hidden seams and clean lines - in harmony with our values of making for long term quality.
The leather handles are our signature design, featuring adjustable length settings and exchanging easily with the NEW plaited leather straps. The plaited handle is specially made from one piece of leather with no obvious end or beginning, a ‘secret plait’. The design is a familiar nod to our saddlery trade, in the same way that we might plait a pair of bridle reins.
This is an elegant and versatile bag that will grow in beautiful character.
Each tote is entirely made from full grain leather - handcrafted by our artisan team in Dubbo, Australia.
