Lady Hester Intrecciato tote bag
Lady Hester tote bag is the epitome of Indonesian leather weaving craftsmanship. It is made from smooth and buttery vegetable tanned calf leather, which is panelled together, using the emblematic Intrecciato weave. Available in black and olive green and structured with two rolled top handles , it comes fitted with an extra hook for a slightly different trapezial look. This timeless tote comes with ample storage room and is decorated in the colourful hand woven Rang Rang from Nusa Penida, without compromising its sleek design and exterior.

- Before shipping our accessories to their destination, we coat them with a gentle conditioner made of olive oil, shea butter, beeswax and essential oil. However, the bag will need some extra love from you, and it is important that you follow the guidelines below. For the first month of use, it is important to avoid taking the jacket out in the rain. This should give the fibres sufficient time to become more flexible and therefore less likely to react to water. To clean the jacket it the best if you purchase a cream from the various online leather care outlets. You should always use a neutral, rather than a particular colour (which will contain a dye) and test on an inconspicuous area of the jacket.
