Leather Tote Bag - Ocean Blue

Color/Finish:

Crazy Horse Ocean Blue Ocean blue color has tones between rich blue and teal. Bright colors like blue are sensitive to sunlight and fading. Therefore, there is more wax and protection on the leather surface in this color, so the leather surface is smoother and more semi-shiny than other crazy horse leather colors. Ocean Blue develops a very nice patina with use over time.

16” x 12” x 5” | 12" handle drop to the top of bag | 2 lbs

40  x 30  x 13  cm | 28cm handle drop to top of bag | 0.9 Kg

Beautiful bag

This is just such a beautiful bag. The leather is thick and sturdy and it's big enough to fit my laptop and belongings in. I love the colour which is maybe less bright than expected but a lovely green.

Even more beautiful than I thought

I'm over the moon with my beautiful forest green tote bag. My A5 zipped notebook cover fits perfect with it. If the turqoise one comes back, I have every intentions of buying that as well. Several people asked after it so I've sent them to the Galen website

My beautiful bag

my bag is just the right size. I can put everything I need in it to get to the city to work. The bag has handy compartments that, in my opinion, could have been a bit larger so that I could also store my wallet a little deeper in the bag. I always bring my water bottle. Now it falls over with a leather strap with, for example, a buckle, the bottle could have stood upright. Maybe I'll have it installed by the cobbler. Furthermore, a very nice quality leather that I will enjoy for years to come because the leather will become more and more beautiful. Happy with the bag!
I hope you are all well.

The most durable bag ever.

I have had my tote for a number of years now, and it still looks amazing. Even more amazing it what it has been through. About 3 years ago in December, a number of us ladies had our purses stolen from our church during the service. The bags were all dumped in our local river, and not recovered for 2 days. I let my bag dry out after its ordeal, have continued to carry it everywhere, and it is as beautiful as ever!

Beautiful bag

I love, love, love the leather of this bag. The colour, the variations and the thickness of the leather add up to a truly luxurious bag which I know will last for many, many years. It is also a perfect size to hold all my everyday items. The pockets and key fob are very useful additions keeping my keys, cellphone, air-pods and pens within easy reach. The only downside was when the bag arrived one of the rivets was missing - it had come off and one pocket was hanging loose on one side. I took it to my local bag repair shop and had it fixed. I contacted Galen Leather and explained the situation and Yunus refunded me the cost to get the bag repaired. So in my opinion excellent after sales service. I will have no hesitation in purchasing from Galen Leather again.

Günlük kullanım için ideal

Çantadan çok memnun kaldım. Daha önce el yapımı İtalyan bir çantam vardı, Galen çantanın kalitesi ve işçiliği ona eş değer, ergonomisi ve tasarımı ise çok daha başarılı. Uzun yıllar severek kullanacağım.

Pure Beauty

I am in love with my Galen undyed tote, undyed writer’s medic bag and undyed folio. I love their natural look, the quality and craftsmanship. I love the fact that I will be able to see the patina progression as my life goes on with them. The items were a bit more lighter when they arrived. After applying a light cover of Galen balm, they turned a bit light honey color. Just so gorgeous! Oh grow old with me, the best is yet to be.

Absolutely the Best Tote

Sturdy. Strong. Structurally Sound. Sublime. Seriously .... do we need anymore alliteration? But this tote. And here’s my story: I was raised in an Italian household. I grew up going to Italy and continue today at age 53. What that means is that I know GOOD leather. I have handmade leather garments and bags in all styles made custom for me from Firenze/Florence. I also have been carrying Dooney & Burke and Coach and Gucci bags for decades. When I found Galen becaue of art journaling, I immediately switched all my travelers notebooks and folios over to their products. I teach art journaling and shared and the products speak for themselves. There was a rash of orders from all my students, and I take full credit for that!! I converted my husband and he has a folio he uses several times per day. I have A5 and standard folios, zipper pouches, planner covers and more. My collection of Galen Leather is divine. Then I noticed THAT tote bag. I was ready to order! But crazy horse was out of stock ☹️. I waited. And waited. I had to travel out of the country, and I prayed it would be in stock before I left. Sadly and miserably I had to take another leather tote 😫😫 instead. Finally!! It was back. I ordered within 10 minutes of the notification email. I am now selling all my large designer bags! I only need this tote. It holds so much, it stands properly as I fill it. It smells divine. I get compliments constantly. And yes. Already 2 of my art journaling students have ordered theirs! If you’re still reading, you know you need this tote. Galen, I’m waiting for purple and black! ~Anna~ PS never will you find more impeccable and jiffy customer service. Galen, thank you for improving the quality of my life with your handiwork. As an artist, I admire how function and beauty can coexist.
