Lightweight black leather Tote bag and removable purse


Steph has been making quite a few of these bags, they have become very popular recently with some of her clients so we thought you might like to see one too. Its a very simple tote bag made in a very soft Nappa leather, that is very lightweight. The wide shoulder straps make the bag comfortable wearing it on your shoulder and is so useful its one of those bags that would fold up into a suitcase if your are travelling or on vacation.

Handmade black leather tote bag
Very good quality fasteners on the edges of the bag to make it secure

The bag has two very good quality metal fasteners across the top, so the sides can fold in an be nice and secure under you arm. Of course it wouldn’t be a Steph creation without a funky printed lining, which she has also used to make a small purse or pouch for inside the bag. Big bags are great but sometimes you need to find your important things, like keys, fast. The purse is ideal for this and can also be secured to the bag. Happy shopping!

Steph has made this bag for me, I’m the one who hold up the queues in Waitrose trying to find my purse inside my shopping bag.

She’s made an extremely super soft lightweight Nappa leather tote bag or shopping bag, which has a matching removable zipped purse or pouch. The little pouch inside is ideal for putting your keys and other important items in…  like sunglasses, make-up, credit cards…. and with its own little strap, the purse can be secured to the handles of the tote, so it can be found in an instance.

The fabric covered purse, with leather trims and a great contracting spotty lining can also be used as a clutch bag… so after the shopping and its time for coffee with the girls, leave the tote bag and the shopping in the boot and just take the little purse with you.

The tote bag is a simple box shape with can be closed and fastened by two metal spring fastenings at the edges. This makes a smaller triangular shape that fits neatly under the arm. And this leather is so soft, its just fabulous to cuddle against you. And the straps are wide and soft so they don’t dig into your shoulders. Even though the leather is soft, its still pretty sturdy.

We had a great comment from one of her clients, which we had not thought about…. so a tip from Mrs A who lives in Oxfordshire… shoe bought one of these bags for herself and then one for her daughter (thanks mum), and told us one of the reasons she bought the  tote bag was because it’s ideal for taking on holiday – it’s lightweight and it packs so flat inside a suitcase, its a perfect travelling companion. Thanks Mrs A!
