Whether you're going on a trip or just heading to the subway, this tote is sturdy enough to get the job done, with a fold down top and carefully wrought details. Handmade from waxed canvas, which is already broken in and supple but will wear gracefully with additional use, the design is available in 3 colors: ash grey (only found on Food52), navy blue, and hunter green.
It's just big enough to fit a 13"" laptop but not so huge that you'll knock into your fellow commuters, with a zippered close, leather straps, brass hardware, and a roomy outer pocket for your phone, keys, and wallet. The interior is lined in French ticking. Clip on the removable long strap to wear the bag over your shoulder or across your chest (hands free!), or grab it by its shorter handles—and go.

Care & Notes
Use clean, cold water to gently surface clean the waxed canvas with a sponge or light scrub brush. Do not use soaps or detergents, as this may permanently damage the fabric. Do not dry clean, machine wash, or machine dry, as this will strip the wax from the canvas.
