Created for the mini lover in all of us, this perfectly sized tote is perfect for when you want a tote look without the size of a larger bag.


It has two sleekly formed comfortable handles in the top of the tote body, as well as comfortable straps to sling it on to your shoulder for easy carrying.


The taller rather than wider shape keeps it from getting in the way as you walk—or run.


Everyday life needs an everyday bag. The Mini Market Tote easily takes you from the library to the grocery store or from the office to lunch, all while it’s classic leather look polishes your everyday style.


Kids will love shopping with you when they have their own tote. It’s also the perfect bag to carry their iPad and a few toys in when they’re traveling or tagging along with you on errands. The shoulder straps and handles were designed to also fit adults, so your darling will never outgrow this timeless leather bag.

Full grain leather lasts for generations, and only becomes more beautiful over time as it takes on the markings of your journey and becomes a part of you.

The Mini Market Tote is handcrafted right here in the south, from a single piece of locally sourced, full grain leather. You’ll notice different color tones as well as distinctive marks and creases that vary from design to design. This is a way to determine that your leather is truly authentic — it’s the real deal. Over time, your leather tote will darken and develop a soft sheen known as the patina as you take it with you everywhere you go. Good, durable leather softens and becomes more beautiful with age and natural wear.

    Love my Mini Market Tote! It’s the perfect size for an everyday bag- no too big, not too little. Can’t wait to add to my collection.

    I have had my new black mini market tote for a bit less than a week. It is fabulous! We all have super busy, stressful lives, and a high quality bag that works is a big relief. I find I need a bag that can be best described as a small tote with easy access to items, and the ability to carry it in my hand or over my shoulder. A great feature of this one is that it is more vertical in design. This helps avoid bumping into folks in tight spaces like a full elevator. And, it feels more “pick pocket” proof since the top opening is more narrow and falls completely under your arm when using the shoulder straps. The strap length is perfect….. not too short, not too long. It’s no surprise that it was designed, and wear tested by women for women. Great job!

    I also enjoyed reading your blog, and about the company and it’s founders. Wishing you much success in the future!!

    Everything I hoped it would be. Perfect size for me. I am only 5 feet tall and was worried the regular market tote would be too big, so I got the mini. Glad I did, but I’m already looking forward to getting another bag soon. I’m obsessed with the quality and smell!!!

    I purchased this bag after I watched House of Aqua on YouTube review:.. I love the size it is perfect for petites, which I am, because it doesn’t over power me. The leather is soft and well made, very durable, and a good bag for shopping. I only have two cons which is the bag needs a closure ( zipper or something) when I was on the car it fell over when hit a bump and my stuff came out. Second con is for the purse to come with a dust bag.

    I received my mini market tote, about two month ago, and i haven’t stop using it, it is so soft comfortable to carry, it holds a lot. and the best of all. the smell os the leather is die for. i keep it next to my bed every night and i sleep so pleasant with the wonderful scent of this leather, i love it!!!

  6. Megan

    I cannot describe how much I love this tote! It is so soft and strong! I use it as my daily work bag, often putting papers and/or my Surface Pro in along with my normal pouches. Everything just fits beautifully, and then when I go to the store, I empty it and use it as a shopping tote! The leather is softening even more with use, and one of my friends described the feel of one of the top handles lovingly as a “puppy ear”! I love it!!! Thank you Meg and Regina!

    After wanting to order the Mini market tote (since first laying eyes on it), I finally took the plunge! It arrived today and I only have one question? Is it against the law to have something this beautiful north of the Mason-Dixon Line??? LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!! So happy with my purchase!! Since it’s my Mother’s Day present, I have to wait a few days to carry it, but you can be sure I will be singing your praises and referring everyone to your website. I own MANY,MANY (Hubby says too many but is there any such thing???) high end purses and your quality and attention to detail are right up there with any of them.
    Kudos to the whole Urban Southern team for beautiful work…I will be back soon.

    The Mini-Market Tote is my new favorite bag. I had looked at the entire collection in a local store and hadn’t picked it out. But after looking at it online for awhile, it started growing on me.

    As I stand barely 5 feet tall, it’s the perfect size for this mother of 4 boys. The smell of the leather, the feel, the lovely color; all of it is delightful. It has already traveled to a presidential rally, finding its place with this happy girl down in the front row. It has gone to ballgames, packing bottled water and books. It goes to town, carrying all the essentials (including the cross-body wallet) that a curly head needs. It’s a stylin’ work horse, and I love it.

    Great job, Urban Southern!

    Exactly what I was looking for. Absolutely love it.

    Placed an order for this tote but had to return due to flaw in the strap. A replacement was sent even before I returned the original! Love this bag but love your customer service even more. For the quality of your products and your respect for your customers I will recommend Urban Southern to everyone. I have two of your bags and will be purchasing more. Thank you.

    I use another U.S. bag for my main purse, but when I need to bring anything extra along (snacks, drink bottles, books, etc.) you will find this going with me, too! I love that they coordinate and they make me feel like I’m classy and in style anywhere I go! It also fits just perfectly under my arm with the comfortable shoulder straps even though I’m tall. The feel of real leather is amazing and you will never want to go back to anything else! Such a fun little tote bag!

  12. Mary Ann

    SO in love with my bag! It is a wee bit smaller than I was picturing, but it is an easy, comfortable size to carry. My husband was sure I wouldn’t like a bag that doesn’t close, but the depth is long enough that I’m not worried about things falling out. It smells and feels amazing.
