The Best Totes for Work

With the majority of us living the daily office life, finding a spacious, practical yet stylish work bag can be challenging; Something that oozes sophisticated, professional woman with its clean line and use of luxurious materials, that isn’t boring - without breaking the bank.

MAHI Leather Classic Tote in Vintage Brown - Perfect Full-Grain Leather Work Tote

A work tote needs to be roomy enough to fit all the daily work essentials – perhaps a laptop, make-up, snacks, reading materials – and daily essentials – keys, phone, cards, purse etc. It also needs to work in-and outside of work for post-work gym sessions, drinks, and just the general daily commute to and from the office.

Whether you travel by foot, car, bus, train or even plane, it is important that the tote works for you and is comfortable, practical and doesn’t take up too much room.

The go-to tote is often the leather tote – and for good reason too. Leather is renowned for its quality and durability; and with the right care, love, and use, they can often last decades. But be sure to choose high quality leather – and don’t get confused with ‘genuine leather’. Yes, ‘genuine leather’ is made of real leather, but it is often the low quality type made from split leather. This is much weaker than other types, such as full-grain leather.

Full-grain leather is widely regarded as the highest quality of leather. It is also notorious for its beautiful, natural grain that displays the most character of all leathers. Each hide is different, carrying its own blemishes, colour variations, burnishes and will continue to develop its colour and characteristics with use and age. This gives a beautiful, timeless, vintage-style look that is truly unique.

Hi, Great blog. I love to carry Tote bags to work. They are big and stylish. I recently purchased a custom-designed leather tote bag from Pop Bag USA. It has a great quality leather I loved it.
