Luxury Leather Tote Bags & Travel Bags

The Tote shopping bag is the perfect answer for those occasions when you need a bigger bag. This collection offers sensibly sized bags with zipped compartments, pockets and detachable shoulder straps. Just because they are bigger doesn’t mean they have to be dull. Big bags are very much on-trend and can be every bit as glamorous as the dainty clutch bag.

Designer Tote Bags

You’ll find the usual standard of quality designer bags from the likes of Aspinal of London, Radley, Betty Jackson, Planet, Valentino and Jane Shilton. Fold over two-way bags, studded totes, small double-sided bags and drawstring bags plus classic styles in a variety of colours. Chesca has a fine selection of fashionable bags, large colourful tote bags, mini faux croc shopper bags and leather quilted tote bags that are stylish and practical in black, mauve and beige.  Oversized bags in seasonal shades can be found at Monsoon, L.K. Bennett, Jaeger, Karen Millen and House of Fraser in yellow, pink, grey, tan, multicolour, white and navy.

Large Leather Shopper Style Bags

Luxury end brands offer quality products crafted from the smoothest grained leather. The classic look of the large leather tote bag is ideal as a sophisticated work bag. Well made and gorgeous to look at sets them apart from the everyday shopper style. Modern work bags come with ample room for a tablet, mobile, papers and more. Various internal compartments and grab handles make them versatile handbags for the workplace.

Shoulder Bags

Choose the type of handbag to suit the occasion from the shoulder, clutch, cross-body, bridal clutches or tote bag. They all have a part to carry off and the best part is you can never have too many. A rainbow of colours, colour block, stripes and pearlised patent makes choosing a bag an exciting affair. It’s not about the standard brown or black leather tote any longer although the classic colours are forever timeless.
