The Urban 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 develop it’s own unique story as you take it with you everywhere you go. Good, durable leather softens and becomes more beautiful with age and natural wear.

    I had been longing for a Urban Tote ever since I had
    seen the bag slung over someone else’ shoulder. I knew this was THE BAG,
    the one I’d love for years ! I’ve taken my tote to the beach , girls
    nights out and it’s even doubled as a book bag. Leather is so classic and
    timeless that it fits any occasion. I’ve also been infatuated with Urban
    Southern’s simplistic approach to design. It’s a pleasure to own this bag.

    I received my Urban Tote a few days ago, and have been taking it with me absolutely everywhere since! The bag is beautiful, and strong enough to handle the books and art supplies I carry with me. It’s not every day you can find a bag both gorgeous and practical. I’ll be using this for many years to come. Thank you Regina, for helping me with my purchase! Your customer service is excellent!

    I’ve had my Urban Tote for close to two years now, thanks to you, Urban Southern I’ve not purchased another bag since! It’s been in and out of the country with me and has withstood various spills, sand and dirt. (This leather is so easy to clean!) I look forward to many more years with my fabulous bag!

    As a speech therapist I am always trying to find ways to stay organized between planning for therapy sessions and scheduling meetings. This leather bag is durable and spacious which allows plenty of room for personal and work related items. I can fit my laptop, planner, and any other items that I need throughout  my busy day. Additionally, the style is timeless and goes anything from business attire, to a casual weekend. I’m looking forward to using this bag for many years to come!

    I cannot say enough about the Urban Tote. It classic stylish and so versatile. Lot’s of room and very sturdy and well made for a busy mom to a single gal out for a night on the town. It’s definitely and eye catcher wherever I go.

    i just received my urban tote in black and I absolutely love it. Perfect design/size for a tote bag and the inside pocket is also a great size. A lot of puses that could be great are not because the inside pocket is too small. Not this bag. The leather is gorgeous. Thank u also for the leather key fob included in the order. I attached it to my key ring and it makes finding your keys super easy.

    My wife loves her new Urban Tote – everything about it – the look, size, utility, and the fresh leather smell. Good job! Keep up the good work!

  8. Sommer Kamphaus

    Love my urban tote! Holds so much, but isn’t too big. I’ve conditioned it and it brought my bag back to new!

  9. Ted Barton

    Bought this for my wife as a Christmas present with the insert. It is her absolute favorite bag. She cannot say enough good things about it. I think the Regina Tote is next.

    I purchased this tote about a year ago in the brown, and it is the absolute best purchase I have ever made. And the coolest thing about this tote …. the more wear it gets, the prettier the leather becomes!! I loved this tote so much I purchased a black half-moon crossbody for my mom 4 months later (which she absolutely adores it) and I’m waiting for the first sale of 2018 to purchase another Urban Tote in black leather!!!! Thank you ladies for phenomenal craftsmanship. Worth every penny.

    I just received my new tote in brown and it is beautiful! I opened the box and just took in that wonderful leather smell. It reminded me of the smell of saddles when I used to ride horses. Brought me right back to my childhood! I can tell the bag is very well made and will last many years. Thank you for my new favorite bag and I am telling all my friends about UrbanSouthern.

    I just received my urban tote bags. I ordered both the chestnut brown, and the matte black…I like big bags and I cannot lie! The urban tote is a very classic, timeless silhouette that I’m sure will last me a lifetime. That is why I chose to buy each color. I know what works for me, so why not? The leather is so buttery soft, and the scent of the leather is amazing. The small pocket inside comes in handy to keep your cell phone in place.

    Since I got my Urban Tote many moons ago, sometimes I’ve tried carrying other bags, but I always and forever come back to this one. The convenience of being able to throw everything in one place is just too tempting, and it makes just about every outfit a little more stylish. I expect to use this bag hard until death do us part. 😀

    Every time a package is received from Urban Southern I think nothing could be more beautiful. Today I received the Urban Tote and truly believe it is the most beautiful—and the leather smell!, So glad I discovered you company and products. Truly exceptional.

    The Urban Tote has become my “take everywhere” bag/purse. I love how simple and classic it is!
