Saddler & Co

The Classic Tote in Cocoa


The essence of this bag is defined by a premium Australian leather crafted into our original, signature design.

Our best selling bag, beloved by many since its launch in 2014, is sought after for its elegant style and timeless design. The Cocoa leather showcases a rich brown, featuring undertones of port wine and cherry.

The Classic Tote bag 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. 

This timeless leather bag was inspired by our love for the simple joys: a good book, fresh coffee, gatherings of friends in a sun drenched corner of a favourite cafe.

Each tote is handcrafted with care by our team, made in small batches. Featuring solid brass or stainless steel buckles stitched onto adjustable straps for strength and durability. Our original design is the perfect showcase for the supple, full grain leather.

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. 

The end result is a elegantly simple yet versatile bag that will grow in beautiful character.


Features: a thoughtfully designed internal pocket, including a zippered side compartment with two handy pouch pockets.

32cm height x  26cm base width, 39cm top width  x  11cm side gusset.

Extra Pairing:

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.
