"I love this tote, but I wish it'd close," they'd say.
"Do you make one like this that zips shut?" they'd ask.
So we answered. We took our flagship tote, the Franklin, and made it just a little more secure. Fully enclosing the top of the bag with a zippered gusset, we've answered the riddle of tote bag air travel and subway wallet safety. It keeps all the features of the original, and adds just a little more peace of mind.
We use a variety of waterproof waxed canvases, each perfect for the demands of the modern world while retaining some old world charm.
Our rivets, buckles, and zippers are all brass. We chose an antiqued brass because the colors just spoke to us on a gut level and it looks great on everything.
Never losing its strength, bridle leather becomes soft, flexible, and supple after a short break-in period, and with proper maintenance, can last a lifetime.
