If there’s one bag you’ll want to use, it’s this stylish + rugged versatile take on the classic tote. Need an everyday bag with the capacity to carry your essentials plus more around town? Or a rugged tote built to withstand being loaded down with a laptop & school books? Whatever you need, to carry, this tote is a versatile and essential accessory for any lifestyle.


- High Quality 10-12oz waxed canvas exterior fabric: Naturally water resistant material —  cut, marked, and prepped for bag construction

*Please Note: One of the allures of waxed canvas is it's ability to show wear & use. You may notice this in the photos of the gray waxed canvas tote. With more use, more creases appear in the canvas, and all the marks start to blend.

- Two 28" x 3/4" 6/7 oz leather straps. Vegetable tanned leather will naturally darken over time with use and patina to a beautiful dark brown.
- Eight sets of rivets for strap attachment
- Klum House Label
- 3/4" D-Ring
Step-by-step illustrated instruction booklet with video tutorials
- Pattern download link & password to access resources page
