This is a custom order for a lovely customer in Omaha, Nebraska (USA).
She wanted a larger waxed canvas tote with longer bridle leather handles.
I adjusted the pattern so that she can have a wider tote with more depth. I usually have the Medium Zipper Tote in Charcoal Grey with a Brown Bottom and chestnut coloured leather straps, but she wanted a black bottom and black handles.
I like the way it looks. It’s darker, but is still easy to match whatever clothing you’re wearing.
This bag can be used for many years to come. The lightly waxed canvas is water-resistant and tough. The European bridle leather handles (used for horse saddles and harnesses) will soften and age beautifully with use.
This bag is 17.5-in. wide x 12-in. tall x 6-in. deep.
The shoulder drop for the handles is 12-in.
