The Rachel Tote.
A client came by a while back and asked me to replicate this tote that she'd bought in France a while back. We went through all the options available and ended up creating a replica of her bag. She liked everything about it. It had been her go-to bag for the past ten years, and she didn't need anything changed.
I got to work. The more I worked, the more I understood why she liked it so much. Longer than the tote that we are used to these days, and slightly slimmer, it reminds me of the Paper Bag. If the Paper Bag had an older sister.
Dimensions: 17" height, 13" width and 6" depth.
A rounded handle for extra comfort (11" drop). Two interior pockets for lots of storage. A reinforced leather panel at the bottom so the shape maintains when filled with the day's stuff.
Here in a supple black cow that has a great drape but is thick enough that it can withstand a heavy load.
