Good things happen when you have some of the most beautiful leather in the world, hand-hammered rivets, and USA small-batch manufacturing. Meet our Horween CXL #8 Leather tote.

Starting with the absolute best material is the way we approach all our products and the tote is no exception. For leather, that means Horween. We use their product a lot, but we wanted to find something extra special this time. You can only begin to see the sheer beauty of this leather from the images we’ve shown you. That special Horween luster, the depth of shade, the hues that you simply don't see from other tanneries. We can safely say this CXL #8 tote is even richer in person than any image can convey. The now famous #8 color presents the most rich, deep burgundy color. It’s truly a thing of beauty. The surface is smooth and slightly oily to the touch. The character this leather develops even after one day of wear is like nothing we’ve seen before. For the straps, we're using thick Hermann Oak natural vegetable tanned leather. This leather starts out light and darkens as you use it and serves a great color contrast to the Horween body.

The Horween Tote is intended to be the perfect unisex bag. Clean and functional. You can use it as a work bag with your laptop, a bag for a farmers market run or a weekend getaway bag. The main body is open for ample storage. There's a single pocket (with a flap covering the opening) on the inside made from CXL #8 leather and stitched to one side of the bag. The handles are designed to be just the right length so they can work in your hand or over your shoulder. They are backed with CXl #8 leather secured by hand pounded industrial copper rivets.
