Perfect daily bag

This bag is an excellent choice for an office environment! It looks very smart and refined. I ordered mine in olive leather, with 8" rolled handles. At that length, the handles do not look disproportionately large but they are still long enough to use as a shoulder bag. The zip closure and leather lining are attractive features. Finally, as another reviewer has commented, the bag doesn't "look" too big even though it can fit a laptop. Very happy.

Love this bag

This was a bonus splurge bag and it is worth every penny. I commute via public transport in nyc and have been searching for the perfect hard wearing but good quality leather tote for years. A random comment on a blog led me to lotuff leather and I continue to be delighted with the bag almost 2 years later. It’s durable and good looking and withstands a lot of abuse on my daily commute. Also lotuff made the handles longer (for winter coat wear) and just repaired some wear and tear for free. Overall excellent value for money. I would definitely buy another lotuff bag.

The “Go To” Bag

It’s always there, to carry my laptop to a meeting, supplies for an event, and of course my lunch and coffee. It sits next to me at attention so I can easily reach in and find whatever. It’s classic and sharp. It’s been at my side almost daily for a year and a half, and has been to Greece and Ireland, to beaches, and on shopping excursions, where I often say, “No bag,” and pop whatever in mine! For a larger bag, it’s not too large at all - I’m 5.2 and I don’t feel overwhelmed. Finest quality leather and craftsmanship, it withstands scratches, even (sadly) deep ones, which thankfully shortly fade away, especially with the help of the leather lotion. The “chestnut” is a lovely color that adds a little pop to my earth-tone (mostly black ;-) wardrobe. Excellent service by Greg. Thanks, Lotuff.

Timeless Beauty!

This bag is sophisticated and will appeal to anyone of any age and for any occasion. Perfect size (don't let the pics make you believe it is too big) since the slim profile holds close to your side when shoulder-carried and the dimensions are perfect with room in the bag to spare for additional items such as sweater, books, water, etc. when you travel. The weight of this bag is not a detriment unlike other leather bags of its size since the double leather is a thinner cut without compromise to the leather. The finish is a matt-shiny combo that shows the leathers' depth and character and the leather is soft enough but not slouchy. This is truly an heirloom bag that will last several lifetimes.

Lotuff's customer service is unparalleled and Greg was patient and easily accommodated my special request for longer, rolled handles for a reasonable minimal charge. He followed with emails throughout the process and the turnaround time was very quick (2 weeks earlier than estimated).

The workmanship is also unparalleled even for American, handmade bags (and since that's all I've owned and supported my adult life, I would know); the finish work both inside and out is detailed and uncompromising.

This bag is a piece of art!
