Leather Tote Bag


Undyed Leather - Not covered Un-dyed leather means, nude leather, with nothing covered up - so they will have some natural range marks, scars, and other blemishes. In other words, they are not processed to make them appear perfect, like something you would get in a department store. When you get your brand new un-dyed vegetable-tanned leather good, it looks a natural color. The hide is effectively naked and so will age and darken with the sun just like your own skin. Aging will develop a rich color and patina. Sun exposure, daily handling, water, and conditioning give natural vegetable tanned leather a rustic look over time.  Read more about vegetable-tanned leather.

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.

Perfect in every way.

As with all Galen Leather products the item exceeded my expectations. I love the undyed leather - this was smooth and unblemished. Perfect. I can’t wait for its own patina and character to emerge. The feel and of course smell of the leather was heavenly too. Great size to hold essentials plus extras but not so large as to become a burden. I had thought of using it as a robust knitting bag but now I’m thinking it will become an every day carry.

Lots of compliments

It's taken me a while to write a review because I was too scared to use the bag. I didn't want to take it out in case it got damaged or wet, or someone spilt something on it. I'm glad I did though. So many people have asked where I got the bag from! Its just the right size to fit my essentials in (purse, shopping bag, diary and pen, perfume, wipes, deoderant, make up bag, umbrella, headphones -big proper ones not those bud things). Key loop is great, although I use the smaller key ring from the a5 folio planner for my main keys I use the larger one for none essential items like a little torch.

Fabulous bag!

First of all my order from Galen arrived so fast! When the undyed leather bag debuted last week I had to have it! I’ve got the green bag and love it and now I love the undyed bag. It’s going to age so beautifully. Galen always creates quality products.
