Inspired by the work tote bags from the 19th century, this waxed canvas and leather tote bag is a product that will last a lifetime. A sustainable investment that will only improve over time thanks to the Vegetable Tanned Leather and its Waxed 18 oz Canvas. The same fabric that Scottish sailors used in the 15th century to protect themselves from the winds and storms. Organic cotton fabric impregnated with beeswax gives it unique qualities, among others, waterproofing. The hardware is made of solid brass and hammered copper rivets, making it practically unbreakable.
Perfect both for your day-to-day in the city or in the countryside, with an ergonomic design, focused on comfort.
The Tote Bag is quite spacious. It consists of 5 outer pockets, 2 on the sides, 2 with snap closure, and the main one that can be closed with two snap buttons. Perfect for storing your laptop, clothes, go shopping, documents, devices, cables, or cameras.
This is probably the last Tote Bag you will need because no matter how many years go by, it will get better with time.

Material: 100% vegetable-tanned Specialty leather. The leather comes solely and exclusively from sustainable processes, following a rigorous selection process and using only artisanal methods. This leather will evolve over time and create a unique patina that will give it a very personal touch. Originally the concept of the waxed canvas has been developed at the beginning of 15th Century by English sailors. The fleets of North Sea Scottish Herring, who operated from the ports on the east coast, began treating the linen cloth with fish oils and animal fats in an attempt to waterproof their sails, keeping them light and efficient. When these sails were worn out the remaining pieces of cloth were used as layers to resist strong winds and sea mist, keeping sailors warm and dry. These layers were the pioneer of the famous raincoat fishermen used to wear during their working hours.
