This tote is big enough to easily carry large items, but small enough to make wearing it a pleasure. The Giovanni Tote (as the name suggests) is made from first grade Italian leather & features two internal pockets & a small magnet at the top, so that the bag sits neatly closed.
The Angus Barrett Giovanni Tote Bag comes wrapped in a keep-sake Angus Barrett Calico Dust Bag.
About the leather:
When we designed the Giovanni tote bag, we wanted to use a vege tanned leather, so that the bag would have the beautiful character and patina about it that only comes with vege tanned leather. It's very hard to find a light weight vege tanned leather. Typically vege tanned leather is heavier in weight and designed to be used for things like tack, bridles and even belts. To find a vege tanned leather more light weight and of a quality suitable for a tote bag like this, has proved to be quite a challenge. We at last found it in an Italian tannery roughly two years ago and this is our second shipment. This year we chose 4 distinct colours, a fiery Italian red, a classic French navy, a beautiful dark green and a rich chocolate brown. We ordered the leather in two different finishes - one for the outside of the bag and one for the inside pockets and for lining the ends. The inside leather is even lighter in weight and silky smooth, making it easy to slip things like your phone in and out.
To compliment this beautiful, vege-tanned leather, Angus has gone to great lengths to source a new kind of thread, which is super high quality, and which is colour matched to the leather. Another improvement on our latest run is reinforcement in the sides of the bags to help the bag keep its special bell-like shape. The boys in the workshop have then finished the edges of the bags with extra glue and a wax, to keep the seams bonded together.
The Giovanni is designed to become the kind of keepsake that you will want to hang on to and pass down to your daughter along with all the stories about it's journeys and experiences.
Before products leave the workshop, they are hand finished by Angus and his team with a treatment that is designed to specifically enhance and protect that product. We work to ensure that all Angus Barrett products are ready for work or show.
The Giovanni Tote Bag is made from a first grade Italian leather. With use, if the bag becomes dry, we recommend using a surface leather dressing, like the Angus Barrett Leather Dressing, to condition it.
We recommend that you do not use any oil to care for your Angus Barrett leather product.
If the bag requires cleaning, simply wipe it clean with a damp cloth. Please note that most leather products will darken with age, use and after dressing.
If your leather product needs to be stored in a bag, we recommend that you use a breathable bag, such as a canvas bag, not a PVC bag.
