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.
For this bag we’re using Horween's Chromexcel #8, which is one of our favorites. Its deep burgundy color is highlighted with an amazing pull up characteristic which really brings out the leather's high and low tones. It ages beautifully as the oils in the leather get rubbed and displaced resulting in slightly lighter patches to give this bag some visual complexity. It’s truly a thing of beauty.
The main body is open for ample storage regardless of your destination. The latigo leather straps are designed to be just the right length so they can work in your hand or over your shoulder offering you various carrying options. There's a single pocket on the inside made from the same Chromexcel #8 leather which is secured along with the straps by hand-pounded industrial copper rivets.
Please note that this leather has a very high wax content. This can cause variations in the leather that are part of its appeal, but can cause each bag to differ from one another. The whitish waxy look is what we call “bloom”. What is happening is that the wax starts to come to the surface causing a cloudy/hazy look. You can very easily wipe this off or brush it to a very nice shine with a horsehair brush.
