Kara Tote Heritage


We first made this bag for Kara Rosenlund – a lady with style. We liked the bag and she said it was fine if we made it for a few others.

So here it is and everyone’s happy.

We now offer two sizes of the Kara tote. The original is considered the ‘large’, with a ‘medium’ version now available which is halfway between the Ladies handbag and the large Kara in size. Please see photos above for comparisons.

In our Heritage Range there are more colour options, and zips can be added to the bag for $100. Please note this makes the bag hold a very triangular shape, which differs to the classic relaxed tote bag style that this bag is meant to be. Adding a zip makes this a custom order.

Small internal zip pockets can be added to the bag for $45. They are sewn into the top binding on one side. The dimension of the pocket overall is approximately 26cm long x 14cm high.

Please note that we use vegetable-tanned or combination-tanned leather for this bag which differs to the consistent smooth finish that you find in most commercial bags. The bag will naturally have character and slight imperfections on the leather which we embrace. The bags once made can be stiff until they are used and worn in where it becomes more buttery in feel. Please allow time for this to develop with this natural material.

Please note that all our Heritage goods are made-to-order unless stock already exists in our shop in Ballarat. Lead times can be found in our footer below for leather goods and footwear.
