The Tapir has the feel of a military messenger bag when folded and worn cross-body, but when unfolded, it becomes a slouchy tote. It's very roomy and easily fits a bottle of water, tablet or medium sized book along with all your necessaries. You can even fit a folded up newspaper under the straps on the outside for easy access.

When used as a tote, this bag will fit a small laptop or a 9”x12” sketchbook or magazines. Made from supple French Calfskin with a firm Bison top, it opens and closes easily. If you are filling it up and traveling, you can close the recessed zipper at the top for added security.

Handmade on Vashon Island
