Tote bags come in all shapes and sizes, from that humble cotton one you got for free at your local record store, to super engineered, multi-material beasts like the Master-Piece Surpass Tote. With more details than you can shake your morning paper at, this Japanese-made tote is certain to incite bag envy from commuters and fellow bag-carriers alike.
This bag is a prime example of what Master-Piece does best — balancing functionality and heritage by blending innovative designs with classic materials like leather and brass. It’s constructed from black Cordura nylon, with contrasting straps and detailing made from thick, natural cowhide leather. The leather handles are lined with felt for extra comfort, and there’s a detachable shoulder strap for hands-free carrying. The main compartment has a stud closure and a zip pocket for your delicate goods, and the finishing touch is a branded brass plaque, which promises that the bag is of the highest quality.
Available for $215 from End.
