Brand new tote from In Blue Handmade! We are so proud to announce the release of our "Marie Tote". This last Christmas, my team came to me with the best gift, a classic bag designed by Allan Block, renowned leatherworker in NYC during the 60s and 70s. Based in Greenwich Village, Allan made sandals and straps for everyone on the scene at the time, including Bob Dylan himself. As an avid fan of Appalachian music, he was a major part of the culture during this pivotal time in folk history. This bag is a tribute to him, his little shop in the city, and all of the musicians and artists who stopped by to say hi, shop his goods, and be a part of this amazing time in our history.
As with all bags from In Blue, every sale donates 50 meals to Feeding America.
The bag is our first boho curved bag. Dimensions are as follows (and approximate):
12 in tall
14 in wide at its widest point
11.5 in wide at the top zipper opening
11.5 in wide at the bottom
3 in deep
The bag holds a ton of stuff! It includes a full panel front exterior pocket, a 6 x 6 in internal pocket for keys/phone, and ample space for your daily carryall.
The strap is a SINGLE shoulder strap, with a 13" drop. If you would like to sub in a longer, adjustable crossbody strap, please contact us.
Every bag comes with our rustic leather tassel, which can be clipped on and off your bag with ease!
Currently, for the introduction of this style, it is unlined inside, and available in just a handful of colors. We expect to release more seasonal colors soon!
Be the first to get your hands on this beautiful style, inspired by our favorite time in fashion history.
