SMALL: Great for those that travel light on the daily – it can fit a water bottle, snacks, book, wallet, and sunglasses comfortably. Measures 9” wide across the base, 12” wide across the top, 4.5” deep and 11.5” tall. 

MEDIUM: Can fit a water bottle, snacks, a book, wallet, snacks, sunglasses and a 13” Macbook snugly. Measured 10.5” wide across the base, 15” wide across the top, 5.5” deep, and 12” tall.

The drop length for all of our handles is 11” regardless of the size of the tote, and suits most!

You are welcome to add a zipper to your classic tote. A classic tote with zipper added is the same as a Zippered Tote – they are cut from the same tote patterns. 

Please note that having a zipper on your tote changes the shape a bit as compared to the classic without the zipper. This is due to the two sides being pulled together, accentuating the angular design. Please refer to our listing photos to see examples of both styles which are equally popular with our customers.

INSIDE POCKET: While the outside pocket is an added option, all totes have an inside pocket that measures approximately 6” x 8” – great for a smartphone and some lip balm! 

KEY LOOP: A standard feature of all totes – no more digging around for your keys! 

FULL-GRAIN LEATHER: Our leather is the highest quality full-grain chap and English bridle leather available. We only use US hides and since American leather is a byproduct of the beef industry, we like to think that we're helping to minimize waste by using hides that may otherwise be wasted. This kind of leather will never look flawless, as it hasn't been covered in any kind of plastic coating. Don’t worry about keeping the tote perfect - the best part about 100% full-grain leather is that it just gets better with age.

UNLINED AND OPEN INTERIOR: Our Tote Bags are unlined, featuring the natural suede underside of the leather on the inside. We use full-grain, oil-tanned leather that is incredibly durable and water tight – it's the same quality of leather that is used in making boots, saddles, and all manner of made-to-last, all-weather leather goods!

In order to keep up with production, we are not able to offer customizations on our designs – sorry about that! We think you’ll love our items as they are!

Our leather products are handmade to order. Production time is 5-7 business days. After your items are completed we will ship to you with priority mail (1-3 Days).

Signature confirmation is available upon request. Please contact customer service.

What is "Full Grain Leather" ?

Full grain leather is the strongest and most durable available. It is real leather and the unique texture and natural imperfections from the cow's life have not been sanded, cut or shaved off. Full grain leather is SIX times stronger than buffed, upholstery, or 'genuine leather'. Rather than wearing out, full grain leather will naturally condition with use, developing a much sought-after patina and unique character over time.

More common 'genuine leather' products available from large department stores have been stripped down and rebuilt with resins, waxes, and chemicals to make all 100,000 look identical. The best these mass-made products will ever look is the day you buy them! In contrast, your full grain Portland Leather Goods items will be stunning when you use them for the first time, and only increase in beauty with every day, becoming something you will treasure for a lifetime.

How do you care for leather?

Our U.S. sourced oil tanned leather is incredibly easy to care for. With time and use, the natural oils in the leather will rise to the surface, developing a beautiful patina and smoothing any scuffs or scratches that may have accumulated.Learn more about caring for your new leather product by clicking HERE.
