[NOTE: We are completely sold out of Totes, but we will make more. We expect the price to be about $250. If you are interested in a tote, please "order" one, and we'll let you know when we are getting ready to make them. At present the price is set to 0 ... no payment or deposit needed to signify your interest. We hope to put the Totes into production in the 3rd quarter of 2019. You can then confirm, change or cancel your order.]
Well, when we began WeatherWool we surely were not thinking about Totes or Carry Bags. But we really appreciate suggestions, and we take them very seriously. And the Tote is proof of that.
The Totes will be available in FullWeight Fabric, in Solid Colors Black, Drab and Duff, and in Lynx Pattern. We might make one or two more sizes/designs, but this one has worked very well.
Construction from a single piece of our FullWeight Merino Jacquard Fabric
Handles and trim of American Bison Leather
Secure inside zippered pouch 9 inches wide and more than 7 inches deep. Maybe we'll add a second inside zippered pouch
Handles are 8 inches tall as pictured, and consist of two layers of our FullWeight Fabric sandwiched between two layers of the Bison Leather
Leather straps are attached by 8 brass rivets and heavy stitching
Straps run all the way under the Bag
Top inside edge of Bag is also reinforced with Bison Leather
Bag is 16 inches tall (not counting the handles), 18 inches across and 9 inches across the bottom
The Bag can be rolled up very flat and stowed or even stashed inside another bag so it can be loaded up later
The Straps are large enough that most people will be able to wear this piece as a Shoulder Bag, but also most people will be able to carry the Bag by the straps at arm's length and not have the Bag touch the floor
