This is a raw top tote bag, with long handles over the shoulder style in a simple design that exudes understated quality. This bag is made from chestnut coloured traditional vegetable tanned First Grade Calf leather from saddlery suppliers By Appointment to HM The Queen, and is lovely quality...soft and supple. This leather is first grade aniline ...meaning it has not been painted or rollered like a lot of cheap leathers, and it retains the hide's natural surface with the 'grain', i.e. visible veining, original leather grain and natural crease lines as with high quality leathers and this tells a story about the animals life. This bag is left unlined, to show the lovely characteristics of this leather inside and out. This all leather bag has strong vegetable tanned leather long over the shoulder style handles, which are secured with hand hammered saddlers pure copper rivets in the traditional way. These are incredibly strong...and I have tested the join and found that a single rivet takes my weight....these are skillfully set and are not to be confused with the cheaper brass rivets that are used on some bags. The main bag seams are double sewn for strength with very strong thread. The handles have hand rounded and polished edges for comfort....a small detail that you will not find very often, but one that makes a big difference to comfort and appearance. Measurements: 15" wide at the top edge when laid flat, and 12 inches high, the base is 10 1/2 inches by 4 inches. The handle length above the rim of the bag is 30 inches...it is an over the shoulder style bag, not a short handled carrier style bag. I have made this bag to be in one of the most popular sizes, but please do check the sizing against an existing bag to make sure this is right for you. This bag has a brass zipped pocket inside for valuables, and there is a brass clip on a strap for securing keys or for securing the bag for security around a chair leg if you are in a restaurant etc. I have made this bag myself in my workshop in Sevenoaks, Kent. I send my bags out securely packaged and tissue wrapped for UK customers by UK Royal Mail Special Delivery, and for International customers by insured, and tracked and or signed for services.
