Welcome to your new favorite handmade leather tote bag!
Our classic totes are simple, durable, and look great with every. single. outfit. Made by hand in our Asheville, NC studio. The classic tote leather is top notch, eco-tanned, and sourced right here in the USA (Massachusetts to be exact). It smells like a tack room, is smooth and soft to the touch, but has enough density to stand up on its own. Like a baseball glove, your new bag will break in over time and shape to your needs. As with all great things, the beauty is in the process of using the bag, and making it your own. Expect a patina over time, and beautiful distress as the bag journeys with you. Get ready for all of the compliments, and your response: "thanks, it's handmade."
