Leather Tote Bag

Why a Handmade Leather Bag is the Perfect Farmer's Market Tote

Australia has come a long way in the transition to a more sustainable future. In fact, recently Queensland has taken a huge step in this process by banning single-use plastics. As we all know, single-use plastic bags have been banned for use by retailers since 2018 in Queensland, but this further initiative of banning other single-used plastics like straws and cutlery is bound to spread awareness on the matter. This movement also allows people to take a step in the right direction by purchasing their own reusable products. So, if you are in the process of deciding on a practical, yet stylish everyday tote that can carry your belongings, groceries and more, read on to find out why an Aurelius Handmade Leather Tote is the perfect candidate… 

Famers Market Tote

  1. Leather is a Strong and Durable Material that will Last for Years

Handmade Leather Totes are one of the strongest and most durable materials on the market. There’s a reason that leather has been used for centuries for countless applications, bags being one of the most popular. Leather is strong enough to carry heavy items that you may have or go to buy out at the farmer’s market. On top of this, the resilience of leather makes these bags a great choice for everyday use. This means that your Handmade Leather Tote won’t need to be replaced every year. In fact, it is well-known that leather can last for up to a lifetime if well taken care of. It’s certainly comforting knowing that a bag that you will be using repeatedly will be in great condition for years to come!

  1. Aurelius Leather is Soft and Comfortable for Everyday Use


When it comes to an everyday tote bag, comfort is undoubtedly one of the most crucial attributes. So, how comfortable is Aurelius Leather? Aurelius Leather is made from 100% Soft Vintage Leather, which has been used for centuries in India for bags. Not only is this type of leather strong enough to carry your everyday essentials but it is also soft enough to keep you feeling comfortable throughout use. This is partly due to the unique leather but is also due to the clever design of this tote bag. A lot of thought and initiative was applied to the process of creating these vintage leather bags to ensure that they create as little impact on your body as possible, so you can enjoy using them daily.
