Market Tote

As you might have guessed, the market tote was designed to be the ultimate shopping companion, whether at the farmer’s market or the grocery store. Pick up your favorite artisan bread and some fresh flowers while you are out.

Weekend Tote

You know you’ll need heels for that fancy dinner out, as well as a flat iron. Oh but what about my comfortable jeans, soft tee and flats for a casual drink with friends? This buttery brown leather tote keeps it all together so you don’t have to.

Mom Bag

Have you been through five different mom bags, none of which were quite the right fit? Do you find yourself adding your husband’s items to your bag as well as carrying your toddler’s extra outfit, blankie, and sippy cups? Have you sacrificed your pride and gotten a shapeless canvas bag at Target just because it’s large enough? We’re here to save the day, mama. While we love Target as much as the next mom, the Market Tote will allow you to have quality and style without sacrificing the space. This mom bag will outlive babyhood and still be around as a beautiful heirloom for you to pass down to your child when he or she becomes a parent.

Library Tote

Books weigh a LOT. We all know this, and that’s one reason we love them. The weighty wisdom of your must have reads can be a trial to carry. Not with the sturdy help of the Market Tote. This durable bag makes it easy to schlepp your books around to, well, everywhere.

Carry On Bag

A laptop, a book, a journal, snacks, sleep mask — the long list of things we need in-flight can be daunting for any carry-on bag. The Market Tote is a sturdy leather shoulder tote that keeps it all easily available and fits perfectly under the seat in front of you — just like the flight attendant instructed.

Market Tote Features:

• Double Shoulder Handles
• Curved Handle Openings
• Designed for Distributed Weight Carry
• Dimensions: 20″ Tall, 14″ Wide, 6″ Deep
• Weight: 2.5 lbs
Each one of our leather bags has hand-crafted right here in the south from a single piece of full grain saddle leather. You’ll notice different brown color tones as well as distinctive marks and creases that vary from bag to bag. This is a way to determine that your leather is truly authentic — it’s the real deal. Over time, your particular bag will develop its own unique story as you take it with you on all your life adventures. Good, durable leather softens and becomes more beautiful with age and natural wear.

  1. I love my Market Tote! It’s sturdy enough to carry anything I need to carry. I’ve traveled with it by plane, it makes the perfect carry-on because I can toss all the little extras in at the last minute. I use it for weekends away, for days out with the kids, and bringing home groceries. I love how everyone notices it wherever I go!

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    The market tote is an extremely universal bag that plays into my life and all the hats I wear on a daily basis.

    As a wife and mom, it’s important to me to feed my family healthy, local food. I love taking the market tote to our local farmers market. I really enjoy the fact that the bag has two handle options, which is great depending on what I purchase.

    As a mom, it’s a great size to house my son’s necessities and mine on a day-to-day basis.

    And as a growing entrepreneur of a stationery company, the bag is the perfect size for my laptop, notes, planner, and everything else I need to go to a meeting or to work outside my home office.

    And I just love how beautiful the bag is, the color and softness of the leather. I receive compliments on it all the time!

    I didn’t hesitate to pick the market tote since I live an urban lifestyle in Southern California. Our neighborhood is walkable with numerous grocery stores, coffee shops, restaurants, and even an open air market so the market tote only made sense. I love the simplicity and quality craftsmanship of this bag. The quality of thIs bag will exceed your expectations. I’m often asked about it when I’m out and about, some people even ask if they can touch it!

    Aside from taking it to the grocery store or farmer’s market I also use this bag to hold my library books. I’ve started homeschooling my daughter this year and I can fit her entire curriculum inside which is awesome because we like to get out of the house and study at various coffee shops during the day.

    I love that Urban Southern products are hand crafted by a leather craftsman, a tradition that’s been passed down for generations in Tennessee.

    I love, love, love my market tote!  I get compliments on it daily, people love how unique it is and the phrase I hear time and time again is “wow that will last you forever!”

    I brought it on our recent trip (Australia, Fiji and Hong Kong) and it did not disappoint!  My husband started calling it the Mary Poppins bag as it seems to be endless in what it could hold and still be comfortable to carry.  My daughter adores her mini market tote as well.  I use mine as my everyday bag where I live in Singapore and I get asked about it all the time.

    I’ll be moving back to the states in a few months and I’m sure it will continue to be my go to bag.  Though you do have some other bags right now that are catching my eye!!!  maybe those will go on my birthday list for the summer 🙂

    Thank you for making such beautiful hand crafted pieces!

    Great bag for shopping, traveling, or everyday. Please consider a way to incorporate a cell phone pocket into the bag.
