Everyone loves a tote, that great go to bag whenever you have more than the norm to carry. Or you just want the look of a bigger bag that isn't all stiff and sturdy. Well I made one. I got some great leather at an awesome price and while I was there shopping with a friend, we decided that one of the hides I bought would make a great bag no matter what side of the hide I used. While leaving I had so many different types of bags in mind to create I couldn't wait to get to work to design and sew some new bags.
I decided to make a raw leather tote. Instead of using the exterior side of the leather I flipped it and made the leather the interior of the bag instead of sewing a lining into the tote. So the exterior of the tote is the soft suede side of the hide. Here it is...
I wanted everything left raw, no finishes on the bag. Just sewn with a seam allowance.
Of course you can't have a tote bag and not include an interior pocket. A nice 9" zipped interior pocket for the items you don't want visible if someone look's inside your bag. The pocket is attached at the top along the back side of the tote bag.
You can purchase this bag for $150. One of a kind 100% genuine leather raw tote bag made by yours truly. Have a bag lover in your life that likes one of a kind pieces? This is the perfect Christmas gift for them. If you are interested feel free to contact me at info[at]tohnibekka.com
