Florence in Ivory and Taupe Brindle

The Florence Tote is far from a "basic tote." This bag is made of a gorgeous taupe cowhide and supple ivory leather. This bucket tote has loads of character. It is lined in taupe pigsuede for an elegant tonal effect. Hand-stitching flanks the center of each gusset with Beargrass Leather's signature crossing, saddle stitch. With a spacious 6" structured bottom, it will hold everything you need for the store, a dance recital, or the beach. With solid brass hardware and a reinforced handle, this tote will add character yet look amazing for years, if not decades. This bag is equipped with an 8" wide x 6" tall inner pocket.

Lined in cream pigsuede, this bag is a true one-of-a-kind. The bag is spacious and durable. Four solid brass feet help protect the bag and keep it stable when set down.

Isabelle in Leopard
The Isabelle is a luxurious custom design from Beargrass Leather. It is made of leopard printed cow hair leather with the gussets, back and handles constructed from supple Essex leather. To top it off, the Isabelle is fully lined in cream colored leather. With a leather tote or shoulder-bag this nice, it's great to know that our hand-stitching is durable enough to last a lifetime. The Isabelle you buy will be the Isabelle you see for this listing. Due to the uniqueness of the natural pattern of the hair, each Isabelle will have its own listing.
