This full-grain leather tote bag is as plain and simple as we could design it, yet with enough of a distinct function and look to say Saddleback. There are no snaps, buttons, zippers or any other breakable parts so it will be handed down for your descendants to use. And that's when the compliments will really come pouring in. And although they don't need it, we reinforced the stitching of the handles with rivets and hidden polyester strapping. It's designed with the fewest and biggest pieces of leather that made sense. That's one of the main reasons it will last so long. The reason was to have fewer seams. And those seams only have 5 stitches per inch so that there is more leather between each hole. Holes are really just the beginning of a tear in any leather tote bag. And if that wasn't enough, we completely lined this leather tote with pigskin, which is tougher than the outer cow skin. Maybe we overdid it, but I'm okay with that. We are really into quality.
Our cow leather is full grain. The grain of leather is like the shingles on a roof. If you take off the top part of the leather (the grain) to get rid of the scars then that's like taking the shingles off of the roof. We have only one piece of hardware on this leather tote bag, the key clip. And it is custom hardware made of 316 Stainless Steel. If you are a metallurgist, then I'm sure you just gasped. It's expensive because it's so strong. One of the strongest metals there is. It'll hold your key. And if all of that isn't enough, our thread is a German UV resistant industrial Polyester thread. And thick thread to add texture to the design. It's more expensive thread and overkill for sewing a leather tote bag, but it doesn't deteriorate when the sun hits it like Nylon does. Honestly, this is not just a good looking leather tote, but it will be the ugliest the first day you get it and get more beautiful from there.
