Product Overview

High-Quality Materials
Leather- For any leather tote bag or travel bag you're thinking about buying, check to see it is made with full grain leather. This is so important because if the leather doesn't have the grain on it, it will look dumpy or fall apart with persistant use. Every leather hide come with the top layer all grain. Those are the tough and resistant tightly woven fibers that naturally protect the cow. But the hide is thick, so the tannery usually splits it in half, the top from the bottom. So now they have two hides to sell. One expensive hide with all of the strong long lasting grain on it and one cheap low quality hide that looks nice but isn't. If you wonder why one leather tote or travel bag lasts longer and is more expensive than another, it is for this main reason.

Lining- We line it with a plush face down pigskin so it has that luxurious suede look. But it's not just good looking, it's actually stronger than the cowskin. It's so impressive. 

Zippers- Of all of the zippers that we could have chosen in the world to put on this leather tote bag, we chose a special yet expensive zipper from Spain. You may find yourself sitting there zipping and unzipping it over and over again. It is strangely satisfyingly smooth.

Expanding Fabric- A tightly woven waxed canvas from Scotland. It's from an old mill in Scotland that we found that perhaps makes the highest quality and most tightly woven waxed canvas in the world. It is in a tartan pattern that will set this leather travel bag off when exposed.

    Zippered Leather Tote

    The quality of the leather is superb. It was a gift and she loved every aspect of it. The color was spot on and it will age beautifully. The zipper is solid and not flimsy. She gets compliments on it whenever she wears it. Couldn't be more happier. Thank you.

    Useful and beautiful bag!

    I've had this bag (in gorgeous Chestnut) for a few months now and it has become my go-to bag for ferrying around my kids' extra clothes/pajamas to and from my parents' house. (It's a great match for my chestnut City Backpack, which I use as my EDC purse.) I also used this as an overnight bag on a 2-night road trip, packed with clothes for myself and my daughter. (I used my Love41 Chestnut Leather Toiletry bag for toiletries.)
    The padded handles are very comfortable for carrying. I can also carry this bag on my shoulder with the short straps. The long cross-body strap is a great option too. The plaid is really beautiful in person and was one of the first things I noticed about this bag when I opened it. Overall, the bag has a very high quality look and feel and the Chestnut color is just gorgeous. The zipper closures are smooth and easy to use and I have no problem zipping the bag even with I have it very full. This is such a clever and unique design and I'm so glad I finally bought it for myself!

    Amazing bag!!!

    This tote really incredible. Last week was the first time I used it as a personal item for a flight. I packed for three days in this bag. I used a packing cube for my clothes (3 tops, 2 sweaters, jeans, pijama, etc.), one pair of flats, toiletries, makeup bag, big wallet, 2 pouches (electronics, hand sanitizer, etc), iPad Pro 12.9, kindle Oasis, Rubik’s cube, extra battery, a bottle of water and my journal. At the airplane I didn’t have any problem placing it under the front seat. When I arrived, I left all my clothes and toiletries at the hotel and use it as a handbag. This zipper tote is amazing!!!

    My Best Investment Ever

    I bought this bag back in the summer of 2016 and have used it almost every single day since. I wanted something that could work as a school, work, and travel bag, and it has done just that. This bag is great for defense against pickpockets (it zippers at the top, and if it's on your shoulder you can have your hand gripping the handles just over the zipper). But above all this bag is beautiful. I get compliments on it all the time (just got one yesterday!). Despite having it for almost four years and using it every day, it still looks incredible and I've had no issues with anything breaking, cracking, or tearing. I usually keep the bag in it's smallest version, but it's nice (especially because I use public transport) that I have the option to expand when I need to bring more stuff into work, because I never need to carry more than one bag. My friends lovingly nicknamed it "Mary" because it's my Mary Poppins bag that can hold anything and everything. I highly recommend the bag to anyone, as well as any other product Love 41 would produce. Not only do you get an incredible bag that you will love beyond measure, but Love 41 supports others too.

    The Only Bag I Need

    I bought this bag in the Fall of 2017 and have been using it ever since, at work nearly every day, as well as while traveling (often as the only bag I bring, for trips up to about 7 days in length). In its expanded configuration it is ideal for travel. It fits perfectly under an airplane seat (no need for the overhead bin), which is great because I never want to let this bag out of my sight! This bag wears like iron, always gets compliments, and I have never regretted my purchase. So much love for Love 41!
