We started by selecting a beautiful brown cowhide nubuck leather to create this special tote. The leather is such a rich chocolate brown color and has a soft nubuck almost sueded finish. We added a front pocket to the bag secured at the corners with copper rivets. There is an interior pocket made from a tan cowhide leather to hold your phone or keys. The straps are a heavy 9oz. leather and secured on with solid copper rivets.
