A tote bag is one of those indispensable staples that most people own in one form or another, and not without good reason. Dependable, clean-cut, and casual, it’s an American classic whose versatility makes it right at home anywhere from the beach to the farmer’s market. But what about when you need something a little more elegant than the canvas carryall stashed in the back of your car? Our Zip-Top Medium Tote takes the traditional design up a notch, adding a level of sophistication that makes it the perfect business bag, large handbag, or airplane carry-on. (But if you want to use it as a beach bag, we won’t tell.)
The Zip-Top Medium Tote has a double-layered base to help it hold its ground and keep its shape, and the straps wrap all the way around the bag to prevent breakage or excess stretching. The zippered closure protects contents from the elements, and another zipper pocket on the interior is there to hold small items like keys or a phone. Its dimensions are slightly smaller than our Working Tote to create a more graceful silhouette, and details like the brass hardware and hand-selected leather make it sure to stand out from its counterparts.
