I’ve been making the Utility Tote for a while now, but only when it’s requested as a custom order. I’m happy to announce that it’s now available in the shop as a regular stock bag.
What I really like about this bag is that it’s so versatile. You can wear it on your shoulder, across the body or hand-held. This is a great everyday bag, carry-on for travel, diaper bag or a bike bag.
The main body of the bag is lightly waxed canvas, a propriety blend of wax on a thick canvas that is water resistant. The hand-held handles are bridle leather used for horse harnesses and saddles. For the adjustable shoulder strap, I used a beautiful brown cowhide top-grain leather. It’s softer, so it molds to the body better.
This is a hefty bag that will carry your belongings for the day or for a weekend trip. It can also fit your 13″ laptop, if you tend to tote your computer around.
As always, my bags have interior pockets to organize all your belongings. I can’t stand it when a bag doesn’t have any pockets and I have to dig through the whole thing. This one has 2 large pockets and 2 bottle pockets. The bottle pockets can fit water bottles, baby bottles, folded umbrellas and slim thermos.
The brass zipper on this tote keeps everything secure and dry. Also, all the handbag hardware is solid brass.
