Shoulder straps: two straps attached to front and back of bag, designed to sit on one shoulder (not across the body). These have a 13" drop from the top of the shoulder to the top of the bag, approximately (depending on your shoulder of course). These straps are approximately 1/2 inch wide. We can do a 1 inch shoulder strap width on request for an upcharge, please message us after purchase if you wish to widen those straps.
Crossbody: A single, longer adjustable strap, which attaches at the sides of the bag. This strap adjusts with an antique brass buckle, and can adjust in length from 36" - 45". This strap is 1 inch wide.
Both Straps Option: Both sets! The shoulder straps with the 13" drop, and a detachable version of our longer, adjustable crossbody strap. When in doubt, go with both straps! This allows you to choose which you want that day (maybe you want a crossbody strap for a festival, travel, etc, but just shoulder straps for work- the choice is yours!)
This bag though. I love it so much. Simple, classic, and ready to go with you everywhere. We have been working for years perfecting our bags, and this one is the quintessential leather tote for anyone on the go!
This bag has all of the options to make sure you are getting exactly what you need! We narrowed it down to two sizes, pocket and strap options, along with your choice of a zipper closure or snap. Includes a key loop inside to hook those keys up!
Each bag includes an internal pocket! The bags are unlined and made from 5 oz, eco-tanned leather.
These beauties feature an antique brass snap closure, or an upgrade to a zipper top closure!
We love these leather choices for our bags, All eco tanned in the USA and Italy, sourced from the East Coast!
Please note that our leather is eco-tanned with dark dyes, and in particular the True Blue might make your white pants a bit blue at first, so plan your outfit accordingly!
All of In Blue Handmade's leathers are second source, eco-tanned and full grain. Full grain means that the top of the hide will show the wear of the animal. We love the look, we believe that distress adds character and style to each piece!
