Across Town - Handcrafted Made-to-Order Leather Bag with Shoulder Strap
Where are you going?
That could mean the park, shopping, or the airport.
Traveling. Now there’s a fun thought. Let’s keep that one going.
Where would you go? I would go to Italy. Or maybe a sun-filled beach. Or maybe a university library (why not?).
Or maybe you are just going to the gym for a row or run or just to think about lifting a weight or two.
Or, maybe you want to take a few magazines, a comfortable pair of shoes, and a water down to the bay. Watch the boats. See the sails. Dream...
This is the only bag you will ever need. Perfect to hold a few things or all of the things.
Handles for when it needs to be handled, or a shoulder strap for when that is best (removable if you don’t want it there). One massive inner pocket to fill with things that need to be carried to and fro. Two inner pockets, perfect for your phone and keys, or notebook and pen. Large outer pocket fits a magazine like that’s what it was designed for (it was).
Veg-tan leather is cut by hand and assembled by hand (the main body of the bag is a single piece of leather, a big one at that!). No machine comes in contact with your leather. Stitched by hand, too. Everything is done by hand with meticulous care and attention to detail. A monogram can be added anywhere you’d like, just use the order form to specify what and where.
You’re going to love this bag. Or the person you are giving it to will. Either way, good choice! This bag is made to use, and to last a lifetime or longer.
Included with your purchase is two cleaning and conditioning treatments. All you pay is shipping. Send it back six months after you receive it for the first cleaning and conditioning, then again at the 1 year mark. Up to you from there on how often you send it back.
An important note on the color of the bag. Whether you go with a natural finish (leather is oiled and then balmed, the flesh side is burnished (smoothed)) or no-finish (literally, no finish, just the leather as-is) the color your bag is when you receive it may be different than what you see here in the pictures. But fear not! Over time, your bag, no matter what color it is when you receive it, will change with age and use! I promise it will only get better. Love it, use it, care for it, and you’ll see this bag age so gracefully you’ll be jealous.
Approximately 15.75” tall, 16.5” long, and 5” wide.
Made for one thing, useful for anything. (Trademark pending).
BUY LESS, BUY BETTER. Made to last a lifetime or longer. (Trademark pending).

This leather bag was perfect for taking my stuff down to the beach! The shoulder strap made it. The color is just what I wanted, a light tan.
