Kris loaded on the customizations for this one. First, she chose her own colours, charcoal grey with a red bottom and brown leather. Then personalized it with her initials.
She also wanted a bag that converts into a backpack. This is a feature that you can add to any of the totes I make (found in the online shop). It’s especially handy when you want to be hands free.
The backpack straps are non-detachable, as it’s more ergonomic and stable. When not in use, you can adjust it to the shortest length to keep the straps out of the way.
Kris wanted this also to be a travel carry-on bag. With Covid, many of us aren’t travelling for pleasure, but Kris wanted to include this option for future trips. The luggage strap is a must if you like to travel light and have all your personal belongings in one bag.
The tote has a full brass zipper top. This is especially important if you’re a traveller, as you have to stow your bag underneath the seat in front of you. Everything is secure, nothing falls out.
This bag has 7 organizing pockets in total. 5 are inside (2 bottles pockets and 3 large pockets) and 2 on the outside front.
It also has a key ring attached to the inside of the front pocket. This feature comes with all the totes.
The zipper tote also comes in a medium size. For everyday use, I would suggest this size (fits a 13″ laptop). Choose the Large Zipper Tote if you tend to carry more daily, carry a 15″ laptop, or like Kris, will be using it as a flight carry-on.
18.5 in. W x 14 in. H x 6 in. D (47 cm x 35.5 cm x 15 cm)
*Maximum size for personal carry-on for most airlines.
Lightly waxed, water resistant canvas, Italian vegetable tanned leather, solid brass hardware.
The Large Zipper Tote can be ordered from my online shop. If you like any of the customizations you have seen on this post, it can also be added right from the shop. Please allow up to 2 weeks to have it made for you before shipping.
Please contact me if you have any questions or if I can assist you with choosing a bag for your needs. Thanks, Cat.
