Chatwin oversized tote bag in black
How big is too big? This is not a question you are willing to answer when discussing the Chatwin 3. Seriously oversized and graciously androgynous, this tote is made to carry anything and everything, from your laptop, to your groceries, and even your essentials for a quick one-night getaway. Entirely hand crafted in Indonesia, it is made of one piece of vegetable tanned full-grain calf hide. It comes with a hand-made zipped top which opens to a capacious and colourful rang-rang-lined interior and suspends from an adjustable shoulder strap.

- Before shipping our bags and 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 bag 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 bag t 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 bag.
