This is an elegant and versatile bag that will grow in beautiful character.

Introducing our Special Release this season, the Classic Tote in Tan. This timeless style tote bag is crafted in Australia with full grain European leather for an exquisite look and feel.

Batch Notes This batch colour is a dappled Tan with hints of amber + honey. A lovely golden version, perfect for gatherings and traveling days.

Style Notes: 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.  

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. We recommend leather conditioning and to take a little extra care against scratches against harsh objects, to preserve the supple nature of this leather.

Maker Notes: 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 grain of the leather to be fully experienced. In the process, we have avoided undue busyness such as external stitching lines or gaudy hardware. 

The leather handles are our signature design, featuring adjustable length settings and NEW stitched, leather lined handles, featuring a beautiful white cotton.

Each hide of leather has its own characteristic markings and tone, and thus each one of our leather goods will be unique and individual. 
We've selected and graded this leather for its strength and ability to remain supple with a little care and leather conditioner. Click here to purchase a leather Care Kit.
