Product Overview

High-Quality Materials
We only used full grain leather to build this leather tote bag because it is the longest lasting most durable leather there is. Leather is like a roof. The top layer of leather has all of the tough tight leather fibers just like a roof has the shingles. A lot of low quality companies make their leather totes with very inexpensive leather that doesn't have any grain on it. The tanneries split the hides the top from the bottom and sold two hides. The strong and resistant grain on top of the hide is sold to quality companies to make leather totes like this one. Antique brass hardware.

Functionality
This leather tote bag was Suzette's first bag and the design has been proven over time because it is extremely functional. It has dual carry options (either shoulder straps or a comfortable handle) and lots of pockets for organization. Will fit some laptops including accessories.

The story behind this leather bag
This was the first leather tote bag I ever designed for Love 41 and I'm still proud of it!  The bag was inspired when I was on a shopping trip in Mexico.  As I was looking through a lot of really bad handbags, I found one that sparked my interest and inspired me.  I took it home and began to remake it from my perspective. The more I adjusted and lengthened and fixed it, the more it began to remind me of a bucket because of this leather tote's shape.

I love that this has adjustable straps.  It's the only leather tote bag of its size that has that feature. The pockets are essential and keep life a little more organized inside this large of a bag. I love the handles too (borrowed from the Saddleback women's tote I designed) because it's essential to quickly grab a bag & go without having to struggle with long straps.  The handles are padded and very comfortable to hold, even when the tote bag is carrying a lot of weight. 

How do I wear this leather tote?  This is my daily casual bag when I'm going from the office, around town on errands and have a lot to carry.  I usually put my laptop, ipad, cosmetic bag, lana wallet, cell phone, keys and sunglasses, but not usually all at once.  I like to use this bag when I have a good amount to carry as it's very comfortable to wear for long distances or an extended amount of time. As always, the purchase of this leather tote bag helps love others in need through education, food, shelter & job training.

    Phone Pocket Doubles as Water Bottle Holder

    Recently discovered the phone pocket works well as a bottle holder. Ran out of cup holders at the drive thru, so, in a pinch, I slid my 20 oz. Hydroflask tumbler into the phone pocket. 18 oz. Yeti bottle and 16 oz. Hydroflask fit perfectly. I’ve never owned a bag this big, but is quickly becoming a favorite. Carry your water and items from shopping in one bag. Very versatile!

    My Delicous Bucket Tote

    I waited seven weeks for my bucket bag to finally arrive in the UK - not the usual and I was on pins for the whole time. When it finally got here it was love at first sight. The bag is gorgeous, amazing strong craftsmanship and the leather is to die for - mine is in Dark Coffee Brown. When I'm at home it lives on the bannister and when I walk past it, I stop and admire it, like I can't believe it's actually mine. I love the lining and the pocket configuration. I love that you can alter the straps to your choice of position, and I love how the straps just sit on your shoulder and do not budge - no holding it the strap on your shoulder with your hand, you never need to do that. That is the very special thing about Love 41 bags that I absolutely love and have never found with anyone else's totes - the straps are long enough and they stay put. No digging into your armpit and constantly hoisting the bag up your shoulder, it just sits beautifully wherever you go. Suzette, please don't discontinue this absolute classic of a bag. Anyone who doesn't have one, if you are on the fence get off it, buy one - they are beautiful bags.

    Love :two_hearts: my Bucket tote

    I absolutely love my bucket leather tote! I also purchased leather Crossbody for my phone and wallet and I love that one too. The bucket leather is stored in my trunk and the small leather Crossbody is used for quick shopping trips. At the end of the day I grab my bucket out of the trunk stick my large water bottle inside with whatever purchases I’ve made and it’s easy to carry into the house.
