Shoulder Tote

Made of Cotton Canvas and Leather, this Shoulder Tote was available in Summer 1987 through Holiday 1987. “Imagination is the only limit to what this bag can carry. It accomodates overnight changes, swimsuits, shopping finds, legal pads and files; zips securely shut at the top; even includes and interior pouch for miniscule accessories. The straps–inch-wide military-grade webbing–are long enough to hang comfortable and safely from your shoulder. Made from pigment-dyed canvas trimmed with full-grain pigskin, and as attractive as the prospect of toting something home in it.”
