These classic bags can seamlessly transition from the work week to the weekend and complement every outfit. Convinced? Shop a few of our favorite stylish and affordable leather tote bags below, from $165 and up.

Leather Tote Bag: The Margie

Clocking in at $165, our top-rated Margie leather tote bag is one of our most affordable and sought-after pieces. This minimalist bag mimics a cotton tote in style and silhouette, but is made with our buttery-soft, 100% genuine leather for long-term use. It’s so soft and flexible, it can be rolled or flat-packed for travel or storage. It features a smooth raw interior, hidden magnetic snap closure, and an exterior slit pocket. It comes in eight muted colors as well as eight eye-catching metallics.

Leather Tote Bag: The Wilkins

The Wilkins is one of our newer leather tote bags and we’re already obsessed with it. It features beautiful sueded cowhide trimmed with vegetable tanned leather for an eye-catching contrast. The exterior sunglasses pocket is incredibly convenient, and you’ll find zip and slip pockets, pen holders, and credit card slots inside. Plus, this timeless leather bag is under $200 and will last you a lifetime. Shop the Wilkins in black, wine, or taupe.

Leather Tote Bag: The Greta

Our beachy Greta tote bag features a woven leather body and a canvas bottom for a breezy coastal feel. It’s large enough to house multiple rolled beach towels, and also features an interior cinching belt for a more narrow opening. Shop the Greta in black, gold, silver, camo, denim, and tie dye!

Leather Tote Bag: The Cesta

For a slightly edgy leather tote bag, meet the Cesta. This unique style features basketweave detailing on the outside that almost resembles snakeskin plus a leather tassel embellishment. It was handcrafted using antique leather tools from the 1970s and radiates high-quality craftsmanship (not to mention style). Shop the Cesta in black, mushroom, tan, and white.  

Leather Tote Bag: The Avery

Our Avery bag is another unstructured leather tote that boasts a perfectly minimal aesthetic. It’s crafted from our patented HydroHide material — a unique water-resistant leather that’s tumbled and treated to create a barrier against liquid absorption; it’s like your purse is wearing a raincoat. If the bag does get wet, simply blot it with a clean, dry cloth. Shop the Avery in dark green, blue, or cognac.

Leather Tote Bag: The Soleil

Similar to the Cesta, our Soleil leather tote bag was designed using vintage tools from the 1970s and boasts the same one-of-a-kind craftsmanship. It features a bohemian sundial motif on the exterior and a matching leather tassel. Shop the Soleil bag in black, mushroom, tan, and white for just $235.

Leather Tote Bag: The Esamy

For a leather tote bag with plenty of personality, meet the Esamy. This snakeskin-print bag is perfectly on-trend and will serve as a statement piece with any minimalist outfit. It features a convenient hidden cell phone pocket, skinny yet durable shoulder straps, and a lightweight silhouette for everyday wear.
