Antique French Linen Crossbody Tote

425.00

This is such a gorgeous and versatile bag, it’s like a swiss army knife. It can be used as a tote, a crossbody, a hobo or anything in between. The body of each bag is made from an authentic hand-loomed antique european gran sack that is full of history. Each of the original grain sacks has unique striping that represents the individual family or farmer that harvested the grain. They were made in the late 19th century to be super functional and durable, so you can be sure it will wear beautifully.

The sturdy tote handles are made from a natural webbing with a ticking print for just little added detail. The leather tote and crossbody straps are made from natural hand-cut + finished belting leather that will darken and patina with use and sun exposure. The crossbody strap can be fully clipped off for days when you don’t need it. The leather tote straps can be snapped off entirely or you can snap just one to the D-rings on the outer sides and use the bag as a hobo. the front patch pocket keeps essentials close-at-hand. The bag is fully lined with white linen and two small pockets inside keep loose treasures safe. The bag has a hidden magnet top to keep everything safely inside. And to top off this already incredibly beautiful bag, there’s a stunning handmade slender tassel dangling down the front - each one is unique and they’re made from a stunning combination of driftwood, brass beads, handmade leather bits and clay beads that were made just for us by a local artist. This bag is really special. As an added bonus, this bag is entirely machine washable. Before washing, clip off the leather straps and dangly bits. Wash on cold and lay flat to dry.
