The Mini Lotus Tote is your new everyday carry. Each tote bag gets its start on the cutting table, where we inspect every cowhide and choose the right piece of leather for your tote. There’s nowhere to hide imperfections, so we cut carefully. The Lotus is stitched by hand using a old time saddle stitch technique to insure quality and a lifetime of use. We make the handles out of 10-ounce belting leather, which will break in and soften with use. Each handle is attached with 4 hand set solid copper rivets. Solid copper rivets are also used to reinforce stress points to insure durability. The Lotus has a inside pocket so you can quickly access small items. It also has a strap to hang your keys or sunglasses. The Lotus leather tote will show where it’s been with wear and patina and every time you scratch it or fold it or get caught in the rain with it, you make it more unique.
