Custom Bag: Medium Zipper Tote | Waxed Canvas and Leather | Water Resistant | Black with Brown Leather Straps

This is a custom Medium Zipper Tote made for Mel in Murray Corner, New Brunswick, Canada. She liked the black Medium Zipper Tote, but wanted brown leather shoulder straps with it.

I really like how this bag turned out. With a simple change of the strap colour, the tote looks so different and unique.



The Medium Zipper Tote is one of my favourite bags because it’s simple and so useful. I consider it the signature Modern Coup bag. When I designed this bag, I knew it needed to be fully zippered, have inside pockets and be water resistant. That’s what I was looking for in a bag and I’ve heard from many customers that that is also what they’re looking for.

This is a useful everyday bag, laptop bag for a 13″ Macbook Air or as a diaper bag.

Here are the specs:

Bag: 16.5″ W x12″ H x5″ D (42cm wide x 30.5cm high x 13cm deep)
Strap: 24″ (61cm) handle with 9.5″ (24cm) shoulder drop

Water resistant lightly waxed canvas body
European bridle leather straps (used for horse saddles, straps and harnesses). It’s a beautiful hard-wearing leather that is thick, strong and will soften with use.

2 bottle pockets 5″W x 8″ L (13cm x 20cm)
