Hailing from the same city as Nike in Oregon, USA is Will Leather Goods, an American men and women’s leather accessories brand that was established in 1981. Known for their use of high quality materials and excellent workmanship, the one tote that’s destined for my collection is the Will Guatemalan Carry-All, a 48 cm by 35.5 cm bundle of joy that would bring instant cheer even on the gloomiest of days.
Made with the same techniques that have been used for hundreds of years, the fabrics are hand woven on wooden looms, resulting in a tote that’s not only sturdy, but very stylish as well. Finished with raw leather handles, it is the perfect quirky piece for work or play, the gym, the beach or even shopping up and down Orchard Road.
Available in 3 different colours (Warm, Red and Cool), each unisex tote retails for USD80 (around SGD99 before shipping), which is truly a steal. Get it online at Will Leather Goods which does ship internationally by dropping them an email. Now excuse me while I decide which one to get for myself.
