I bought this in cognac a year ago after I saw it on Instagram and it has been one of my best purchases. Love the colour, the leather has maintained its quality, and it’s very functional. I’m a GP and needed something roomy but elegant enough to take to hospital and I’m pleased that the straps have managed to hold the weight without a problem. The pocket on the outside is convenient to store my phone for easy access, and there are plenty of compartments inside to organise everything else. Cost per wear is super-economical given I use it everyday.

This tote looked about right for my daily commute. My main concern was the strap – this is where most of my previous bags have failed me as I carry a lot around during the day. Thankfully it was a baseless fear! Worth every penny, as I overload it with my computer, lunch box, umbrella, scarf, shoes – everything I need and the strap is still perfect after a year and a half. Pleased with the purchase. Next time, I’d get it monogrammed.

Best tote I’ve owned. Have used it daily for over a year and it still looks as good as new. Beautiful leather and practically designed with lots of compartments. I like that it is lined (not polyester thank god) and has metal feet (unlike a lot of bags that skimp on such details).
I was looking for a good representable tote bag to carry my laptop and files to work, and it has been my fave since I bought it over a year ago. I like how soft yet durable the leather is, and how versatile it is. It’s been my companion in meeting with some important corporate clients, my hand carry in some overseas business trips or even as “baby bag” for a stylish day trip with my 3 yo boy. Just perfect!

The best! I love this bag. I was searching for a tote that would fit laptop, cords, purse, and everything else you need for a daily commute and frequent air travel. And, I wanted it to have a zipper and outside pockets. Most bags on the market are either super big or too darn heavy, even when they are empty. I’m a smaller woman (5’4 125 lbs) and need to be able to carry the bag for long days in the airport and international flights. The bag has been heavily used for the last 6 months and travels well. I bought the navy color which seems darker than the color on the site (which is a good thing). It has an outside pocket which is perfect for your phone and a couple inside pockets including one with a zipper. It’s a beautiful, functional product. Feeling good about the production process and materials used is just an added bonus. Kudos Issara!

“I bought this tote (Cognac with gold initials monogrammed) for my partner earlier this year in February.
I and (I’m sure she) would recommend this bag to absolutely anyone. It’s beautifully designed and manufactured but also durable. It travels to work with her every day and also serves as her overnight bag when we travel together. The Tote has held up incredibly well and still looks amazing considering how heavily it has been used.”
I’ve had this bag for about a month now and I’m so glad that everything fits in perfectly. There’s plenty of space, and I’m able to store all of my belongings with ease, without the fear of the bag breaking because I can tell that this is a high quality bag. Looking forward to see how well it lasts through its lifetime!

I had been looking for a leather bag for a while, and finally decided on the black tote bag monogrammed with gold foil a few months back, which I have been using daily since. It meets every criteria I had for a bag: lightweight, roomy, durable, and with high-quality craftsmanship. The material wasn’t as soft as I had imagined, but which turned out to be great as the bag holds its shape when left to stand unsupported (and the papers I carry don’t get folded). I was initially worried that the straps would fray under the weight of the items I put in it (laptop, shoes, phones, notebooks, etc), but it has held up very well with no signs of wear. I’m also impressed with the craftsmanship, where the stitching is close-knit and even, and most of it is hidden as it is stitched from the inside. I have gotten a lot of compliments for the bag, and am very happy with the purchase. Will definitely get another item from issara!

I can’t describe how much I love this bag! My sister has one and after seeing how great it is for daily use – stylish, holds loads and strong enough for a mum to cart around with a million bobs and bits, I ordered one too. It came in perfect condition, packaged carefully in cute eco friendly packaging and a dustbag. Oh and I loved the little card with the details of the artisan who made the product. Thanks for the wonderful story!!

I waited 6 months before leaving this review so that I can comment on the wear and tear. I’m back here both to leave a review and to buy a wallet (you guys have me hooked!). I’d been searching for a tote with a zipper that fits my life in it but also looks nice. I’m a very infrequent shopper and a keen follower of “buy for life”. I think I hit the jackpot with this product. The leather is beautiful and is starting to develop a beautiful patina after 6 months of daily use. Everything from the construction to materials used is top notch. Highly recommend!
