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!

The bag is perfect! It has plenty of storage space. It looks elegant and you can wear it with anything. Good material and good customer service! I can’t wait to buy another bag. I recommend i!
Got this bag as a gift for my girlfriend, she was very excited to get it! High quality material and the color/size is as advertised
I purchased the Portland Leather purse as a Mother's Day gift for my wife. She absolutely loves the bag and has stated that a matching wallet is required. The craftsmanship along with the leather is second to none. I highly recommend Portland Leather and their products.
This beautiful and well-crafted bag is receiving a lot of compliments. Even in Medium, the Classic Tote is big enough to hold a day's worth of essentials, but the pockets and key snap make it easy to find the often looked-for items. The slightly distressed nature of the leather keeps me from worrying about the eventual dings and scratches. I bought it in Merlot, as I have a lot of brown and black bags, but I expect I will be retiring some of those buying the Classic Tote in those colors as well. All that and made in the USA and sold at a reasonable price.
I purchased this tote for my fiancee. She just got a new laptop and needed a new bag. She absolutely loves it. The Merlot color is great, the construction is beautiful. highly recommend, makes a great gift.
