We’ve searched the stalls of Florence’s famous San Lorenzo leather market to find the perfect all-purpose tote. Handcrafted by an Italian leatherworking family, its exquisitely made and remarkably soft, but not too precious for every day. Over time, the brushed leather surface loses its shine and gains a rich patina that’s full of character—a good metaphor for our own lives, no?
The leather was beautiful and took me back to Florence.

The extra long strap is not a favorite of mine
It’s a beautiful tote. Wonderful color and size. Well made. However, the handles should be longer and thicker. They just aren’t quite the right size.
Purchased for a family member for whom I bought a fabulous red purse 15 years ago. It was time for a new one, a little more sophisticated and a little more versatile for business and limited travel. She loved it! She thought short handles were fine for over-the-shoulder carrying and the longer strap is adjustable. She said she would probably not wear as a crossbody
