On the go and always on to the next big thing—does this sound like you? Try carrying a large leather tote bag for a great shoulder piece that provides ample storage for any busy-day items or last minute essential. Although a large leather tote bag is carried over the shoulder, it does differ from a traditional shoulder bag quite a bit. For example, a tote typically opens much wider and more easily than a shoulder bag with two parallel straps and no additional fastenings — this makes it easier to open and close at any given moment. Because of its spacious interior, a large leather tote bag like our Madison Leather Tote Bag or Walker Leather Tote Bag is great for storing a laptop and notebook for quick lunch meetings or a trip to the office.

Curious about the difference between a small and large leather tote bag? To be considered a large tote bag, you should be able to fit a laptop and other large items in the bag, so dimensions for a large tote begin at 16.25" L x 6.5" W x 13" H. We categorize tote bags as “small” if they are 11”L x 5.5”W x 9”H and below.
