Product Description

Brand new tote from In Blue Handmade! We are so proud to announce the release of our "Marie Tote". 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.

This is our updated version of this bag! This beauty includes our botanical applique, a vision our Chief Of Operations, Britney had this year. These beautiful leaves add dimension and flow to the bag, and an element of style that I personally love so much!

As with all bags from In Blue, every sale donates 50 meals to Feeding America.
