* I'm so sorry. I've disabled the waiting list for this bag. I have been unable to secure a consistent supply of leather for this bag despite numerous efforts from various suppliers. I will try again in the new year when I am able to shop in person for leather or I may discontinue the bag. I'm so sorry for any disappointment.
Introducing the Skye Crossbody Tote! I have been wanting to make an all leather statement tote for a long time and it is finally ready to share with you. The outer body is constructed entirely of leather, with a tartan or Harris Tweed® front pocket. The bag can be carried with either the leather tote handles or the removable leather crossbody strap.
The bag is constructed of a mid-weight 3/4oz full grain pull up leather for that antique look. Pull up leathers are treated with hot oils during the dyeing process that allow the finished leather to have a two-toned effect when pulled or creased. When you rub the creases with your finger, the oils move back and the colour returns. This distressed look is absolutely stunning.
The Skye Convertible Tote is fully lined with the gorgeous quilting cottons that I've become known for. The inside is one large compartment with leather slip pockets for electronics/wallet and pens, as well as a spacious zip pocket on the front of the bag to keep you organized. The interior is roomy and fits a MacBook Pro comfortably. There is also a clip for your keys. No more digging to the bottom of your bag! The bag closes with the top recessed zipper.
The front pocket is lined with quilting cotton and closes with a magnetic snap.
The 1" removable crossbody strap is a 5/6oz leather and is fully adjustable with a slider.
The 3/4" tote handles are the same 5/6oz leather as the crossbody strap.
The dimensions of the Skye Bag are:
16.5″ from top to bottom
13″ from side to side at the top of the bag
10.5" from side to side on the bottom of the bag
5″ wide on the bottom
15.5" tote handle drop
50" adjustable crossbody strap
The Skye Convertible Tote can be customized with the tartan or Harris Tweed® of your choice.
