Antique Leather Reader | Truffle #1

$84.00 $58.00

This Reader comes from a batch of past iterations and alternatives found within our workshop. This bag has reclaimed leather handles and a gusseted base. It is fully functional, but can be expected to have some degree of dust, dirt, or wear on both the leather and waxed canvas. This item is non-returnable.

Inspired by my “Weekly Readers” book club tote that served as my bag for many years, this small tote is perfect for a few essentials and will leave you unburdened, especially if you are the type who loathes a weighty carryall. Perfect for books, iPads, e-readers, &c.

Constructed waxed canvas originated in the sailing industry in Scotland in the 1920s and became widely used in sportswear and apparel because of its waterproofing abilities and superb durability.
