A leather tote made from vegetable-tanned cow hide in a mahogany color. Straps are fastened with rivets in an antique brass finish. Measures approximately 16” wide 13 tall, with 17” straps. This bag has been conditioned with a lanolin, beeswax and avocado oil conditioner, giving it a waxy feel and a strong protective coating. No pockets. Our bags begin as raw beef hides from farmers and butchers in Vermont's Champlain Valley. Hides are transformed into leather using environmentally sound processes and chestnut-based solutions by the Meyer Family in New York State, who have passed their tanning traditions down over the past 400 years. Your purchase helps to build a resilient, equitable food system. 5% of proceeds from online purchases to organizations that are working to meet these ends.
