The Tote takes me ~40 hours to make and has ~1,600 stitches made by hand. Stylish and elegant, it holds everything you need for the day including a laptop and can be handheld or carried on the shoulder.

 

I exclusively use Glazed Wickett & Craig Traditional Harness Leather. It is among the highest end vegetable tanned leathers in the world. Crafted in the USA, Wickett & Craig is known for quality, durability, and rich finishes. Utilizing a traditional process known as jack glazing, the oils are brought to the surface which creates a glossy finish that does not hide the leather's natural grain.

    Color: Black

    Leather: Wickett & Craig Harness - Veg Tanned Leather

    Dimensions: 18” top width x 16” base width x 15" high x 7” deep

  • Design Philosophy

    No machines are used. Everything is hand cut, hand punched, saddle stitched, hand finished and made one at a time.

    Only USA sourced vegetable tanned full grain leather is used which shows the character of the animal as it lived.

    The body of the bags are constructed with as few seams as possible to maximize both beauty and utility.

  • Warranty

    I stand behind my work and will do repairs if there is any structural failure for reasons that are in my area of responsibility. By design my bags are made with as few seams as possible, and saddle stitched by hand to prevent such failures. I ask that the client be responsible for costs of shipping the bag to me and back in case of such failure. I’ll take care of the rest. My responsibility for fixing a problem may be undercut, however, if the bag has had work done on it by someone else.

  • Sustainability

    These bags are made for years of hard use, a lifetime if cared for, and every element can be repaired and replaced. This is the opposite of fast fashion. Buy it once. Buy it for life.

    I only use Wickett and Craig leather. Founded in 1867, Wickett & Craig is a world premiere vegetable tannery. A labor-intensive method that requires skilled workers, veg-tanning is a natural, eco-friendly process that produces durable, exquisite leathers recognized for their depth of color and rich patina. The Wickett & Craig tannery has been audited by the Leather Working Group for environmental certification.
