This Tote is the perfect size to carry all your needs, not too big, not too small, and can handle everyday wear while looking more amazing each day. The pocket is designed thoughtfully, and put it on the inside of the tote bag for the most security. It is designed on a slant, with a seam in the middle to create one deeper pocket (secures your phone and wallet) and one shallower pocket (keys, lipstick, etc). The straps are made from a heavier weight leather, and they are riveted to the back with coordinating leather tabs on the inside of the bag and can handle heavy books in the bag. Please know that each bag is incredibly unique. Leather can vary greatly. Your bag may be darker or lighter and will have a different pattern from photos show. From our freedom business partner, Designed for Joy located in Raleigh, North Carolina. Dimensions: 17 in wide x 16 in x 10 in handle drop.
