#Carla is the ideal tote that you wear everyday, whether you go out or you go to the office, regardless of the season. We respect our philosophy with this product, and the minimalist design of the bag gives it simplicity both in the aesthetics of the product and in use and versatility.
We tried to reduce the number of stitches as we could to get a cleaner design, so that, at a first glance they are invisible. The two sides of the #Carla bag are perfectly matched by a black leather cord that matches chromatically with the straps, these having the same color for all bags.
We used natural cowhide leather for the exterior, the same leather used in other accessories in our collection. Inside we have a Cordura® lining, a material 10 times stronger than cotton, 4 times stronger than polyester and 2 times stronger than nylon. Cordura® is usually used in articles of clothing exposed to wear, mountain equipment with long use, intensely maneuvered or in military equipment, but we preferred to use it in making our bags, for additional protection, thus guaranteeing a train bag. I chose Cordura® because it has a low weight, it is resistant to wear and abrasion, it is a good insulator and last but not least, it is a premium material with natural bovine skin.
Tip: Do not worry about any scratches or knocks your bag will get! The nature of the skin is to adapt to them and to change its shade with the passage of time.
The compartment of the bag is a simple one, with a side pocket that holds a 10 '' tablet and 2 other pockets for storing different everyday objects (cosmetics, perfume, small agenda, keys, etc.).
