The Adorable Arm Bag

The Small Tote is a wonderful choice for those who want the functionality and style of a tote, without losing the convenience of a more compact handbag.  The milled leather offers a more relaxed structure, however it will not slump over.  Identical in structure and construction to our larger totes, the design details of this bag pop all the more in their smaller scale.  This bag has two standard features that make it a favorite among customers.  First, it has shorter loop handles, making it the perfect bag for carrying on the arm or by the handles.  Second, it also comes with integral D-Rings stitched into the seams at the bag opening, allowing you to clip on a stylish strap and carry it on your shoulder, or hands-free as a crossbody.  Its slightly smaller size makes it a preferred bag for a night out on the town, dressing up any ensemble when worn on the arm.  This size is very popular among those who want to carry less with them, but still want to have a single bag that can hold plenty without feeling crammed.  An adorable little tote that is perfect for any occasion!

Vegetable Tanned Leather

This hand-selected superior leather is sourced from a historic tannery that has been perfecting its processes over a century and a half in the business.  With a labor-intensive vegetable tanning method, they produce high quality full-grain hides that are full of character, rich in color, tough in the wearing, and buttery supple to the hand.  Vegetable tanning is the most natural, eco-friendly process available to tanners, virtually eliminating the use of harsher chemicals used by tanneries of the past.
