Oversized Butterscotch Vintage Crossbody Tote

425.00

This one-of-a-kind bag was painstakingly reconstructed from a gigantic vintage camping rucksack. The original piece was completely deconstructed and then reworked into a fabulous oversized bag that would be great as a weekender or just for times when you need to carry a lot of stuff. The bottom is reinforced with gorgeous saddle veg-tanned leather that has been extensively hand-processed to give it a look and feel that normally comes from loving a leather piece for a long time and works beautifully with the vintage feel of the bag. The tote straps are made from hand-cut + finished saddle belting leather that will patina and soften with use. The crossbody strap is made from a vintage linen firehose and has been deemed the most comfortable strap for your shoulder, especially when you’re carrying around the kitchen sink. There are four pockets reworked from the original bag on the front and sides to organize all of your loose treasures. The top zips completely shut to keep everything safely inside. The inside is lined with ticking canvas and has two additional generous pockets. Three of our signature cross details are hand-embroidered on the front to give it just the perfect amount of detail. This bag was no doubt a workhorse in its previous life and will be in this one as well.
