Rena's review: Cuyana Classic Structured Leather Tote

As I get older, I realized at times I just need functional fuss-free pieces. I am looking for a functional tote as my Everlane twill tote bag is very much used (and to my disappointment, the bag was only used less than a year).

I have read and heard so much about Cuyana, a brand based here in San Francisco. Their flagship store is chic, pared down and I just love their refined selection of products. I read great reviews on one of their bestsellers, the Classic Tote bag. However I prefer a structured version so I got the Classic Structured Leather Tote instead in black and blush.



The bag is simple and chic. I love how roomy it is. The handles are very well made and reinforced meaning I can put a lot of things in the bag but the bag does not feel weighed down (which is an issue for a lot of other tote bags. The bags also have leather ties that can change the look of the bag while retaining the structure.

I highly recommend this bag if you are hunting for the perfect leather tote. I am also eyeing the Tote Organization Insert which is perfect for someone like me who is constantly unable to locate the things in my bag. 

This bag is perfect for work, school, travel and I can see this being a good nappy bag. ย
