Sophia ~ Moody Blue Mandala City Tote Bag
A colorful mandala unfolds across this deeply vibrant city tote bag! It’s a little smaller than our full size tote, perfect for the essentials needed for your full day in the city!
The body of the bag is made from thick deep navy blue oil tanned leather, it’s rugged and so lush. The interior pocket is a light lilac leather and the outside pocket is hand tooled and painted. It’s all stitched together with lavender thread. Oh, and don’t get me started on the handles, I’ve been waiting all my life to make a bag with these! Well, at least since I watched Golden Girls as a child and fell in love with Sophia and her ever-present beaded handle purse!
✨The body of the bag measures 11" wide, 10.25” tall and 3.5” deep.
✨The straps are 20.5” from end to end and have an 8” drop.
👉How do I care for my handmade leather pieces?👇
Why isn't your leather waterproof?
All leather is a natural skin, it retains moisture, gets dry and can warp and crack without proper care.. Just like us ;)
For our tooled and painted vegetable tan pieces we use only the best eco & health conscious finishing products - eco-flo environmentally safe stains and varnishes. These varnishes are water-resistant but by no means waterproof.
For any of our pieces, remove before bathing, swimming, showering or hand washing. if your piece does happen to get a splash on it, blot it dry with a soft absorbent cloth immediately in order to lessen any adverse affects, then condition.
On all pieces, I add a conditioning creme to keep it supple and flexible. This is a wax based polish that really helps protect the piece from the elements.
You will want to condition your pieces over time as the coats I've applied wear away. You can use conditioning cremes like Fiebing's Aussie Leather Conditioner to keep your pieces supple and to rejuvenate them... This cream is a combination of natural and synthetic wax emulsions (with bees wax) and does an amazing job!
