ellen truijen deluxe tote bag



Large tote bag,hand made with top-quality European leather in a small Dutch factory by Netherlands designer Ellen Truijen. Fully lined in tan cotton (has an inner zip pocket and several slip pockets), top gusseted zipper and detachable shoulder/cross-body strap. Pretty and popular oxblood/burgundy color. The straps are a lighter sand color. The leather is very buttery and smooth.

I've been using this lovely big tote bag for about six months, but it's actually a little large for what I need to carry right now. I have a strict "one-in, one-out" bag policy, otherwise I'd keep this baby. It's in excellent condition inside and out.

Measurements:
15.5" high by 13.5" wide by 4" deep
Shoulder strap is 38" long

LOOKING TO SWAP: Emerson Fry Carolyn Sweater




LOOKING TO SWAP

I have Emerson Fry's Carolyn Sweater in size SMALL in Mars Red and am looking to swap for the white Carolyn Sweater.  Sweater is unworn and was purchased when it went on sale (I believe for $128).  It is not a true red, more like a brick red that just does not work on me - super hard to get color in photo, this is not as shown and is a brick red in person.  Unworn with tag attached.  A bit shorter than the cork colored one I own and measures 23" armpit to armpit and 21.5" in length (from back, bit shorter in front as you can see in last pic) - meant to be worn wide and shorter. 

Open to other items if you have something you'd like to swap me for - interested in Rachel Comey, Emerson Fry, Isabel Marant, ALL Knitwear, Acne...  Email is themchenryoutdoor@gmail.com.  THANKS!

NEW Imogene + Willie Hencye Worker Jeans
