This tote is handstitched from start to finish, using a slightly different method than I normally use. Each and every hole is punched one at a time before stitching all the pieces together. It proved to be very time consuming, but I definitely like how it turned out. Another first for me was finally getting to use a truly PREMIUM vegetable-tanned leather from Italy. This Badalassi Carlo leather was so amazing to work with. The feel and look is awesome, and the edges finished beautifully with minimal slicking. If you’re looking for a bag that will stand the test of time, this is it! The Clarissa Tote is as beautiful as she is functional.
