Product Overview

High-Quality Materials

New design with double stitched straps

Leather- For any leather tote bag you're considering, make sure it is made with full grain leather. It's important because if the leather doesn't have the grain on it, it will fall apart at a young age. Every leather hide naturally comes with grain as the top layer. Those are the tightly woven fibers that naturally protect the cow. But hides are naturally thick too, so tanneries usually split them in half, the top from the bottom. Now they have two hides they can sell. One expensive hide with all of the strong grain and one cheap low quality hide that looks nice but isn't. That leather is great for decorative leather parts, but not for leather tote bags that get stress and wear. This is the main difference between cheap totes and expensive ones. The quality of the leather.

I designed this tote to be simple and no fuss, yet totally versatile. It's the perfect everyday carry bag and allows you to toss your daily necessities inside and go. The tote is also lightweight and somewhat unstructured or floppy.

The story behind this leather tote bag
I designed this tote because I wanted something that was simplistic and no fuss, yet versatile. This bag is just that. It is a great everyday leather tote bag for the person who wants to be able to throw anything in their bag and go. It can really carry a lot. I also wanted something that was lightweight and somewhat unstructured or floppy.

How do I wear it? It's such a versatile bag, I carry it for all sorts of purposes including an everyday purse when I'm running here and there from home to office to store (most days). The style is really simple and goes with any outfit, casual or dressed up. I love that it keeps everything together effortlessly and is so easy to get things in and out quickly. I throw my leather clutch purse in here or the Koroha bag alone with my keys, laptop and sometimes iPad. There's a lot of room in this tote! I also like that I can fold it up and fit it in my luggage to use when traveling.

    Perfect grocery bag

    All others are weak and will fail you eventually.

    This will last long enough that the five cent discount eventually pays for it.

    Highly recommended.

    simple tote

    This bag is absolutely beautiful. I got it in black and it's beauty cannot be overstated. I thought it was going to be very floppy, but it actually has some structure to it. I'm sure it will relax with use, but that's just fine. I can't wait to see how it ages.

    Best Bag Ever

    I rarely leave a review but I had to share my experience with this tote. I've had it for going on 3 years. It is really perfect. It's light, strong, smells amazing and has developed a beautiful patina. I use it ALL. THE. TIME. Fits everything. I've been getting rid of my other bags because I simply don't use them anymore since I purchased this one. A big plus is that this purchase helps other people. And of course, Dave (or whoever writes the copy) makes me laugh! Winner winner chicken dinner!

    This bag is amazing

    I've owned my Simple Tote for about a year now, the Tobacco is gorgeous it has wonderful marbling. I use this bag sometimes as my every day carry. It holds files super easily, my wallet, pouches. It is a work horse of a tote. I love the simplicity of it. As much as I love pockets I'm ok that this doesn't have any, I would love to see a key fob added, but it is not a deal breaker at all. This is a great bag that I didn't know I needed until the Saddleback Facebook group helped me when I was looking for something larger than my medium bucket tote.

    Amazing everyday workday Leather Tote

    I’ve owned this tote in Tabacco for 5 years now. It has been the most versatile bag I’ve used and but it’s gets a lot of questions. It’s color has gotten darker with every passing year. I usually have my large calendar, keys, small pochette bag, pencil holder, my 15 inch MacBook covered by my saddleback leather sleeve.
