Handsomely hand stitched and cut from a single piece of leather. This is a tote that’s sturdy enough for years of everyday use, and elegant enough to want to.
Made by Böle, purveyor to the Swedish Royal Family and the last Spruce Bark Tannery in the world, the Böle Tote is available now exclusively on Crest & Co. with a 15 year warranty.
The tote ($1195) is a tribute to saddlery, using vegetable-tanned swedish cattle leather — each hide takes 9 to 12 months of tanning to achieve the perfect color and consistency — giving it a natural color that ages beautifully over time. Copper rivets, white thread and Swedish roller buckles add to its style and simplicity.
