Let’s face it. A woman’s work bag is not a simple purchase. It needs space for our daily essentials, room to hold our laptop to and from the office, compartments to store our ‘in case of emergency’ products and more.
It should be stylish but not too glamorous. Large but not too heavy. And durable enough to last through years of commuting, evenings out and weekends away with the family.
Is there really a bag that can do it all? At Billy Tannery, we’re passionate about crafting beautiful leather accessories that last for years to come. That’s why we’re pretty confident our take on the classic tote is the best leather work bag for women.
Meet the Gote - our signature leather work bag for women
Using sustainable vegetable-tanned goat leather made here in our own local tannery, we produce leather work bags and goods to suit every working woman. The ‘Gote’ is our best selling unisex leather bag, made to meet every need from the office to the playground to your next staycation.
Large yet light
When designing our signature leather tote bag, we made sure to include enough compartments to accommodate for the working woman. Inside you’ll find three internal pockets with one specifically created to hold a 15” laptop. Whilst on the outside, a neat exterior slip is perfect for easy access documents, passes and those loose bits of change.
But what makes our large leather bag so popular is it’s versatility. With 25 litres of volume, it’s perfect for overnight stays and weekend celebrations. So whether you’re stopping off at a friend’s, heading to the gym or need to pack a change of clothes for later, the Gote is spacious enough for any situation.
Whilst the Gote’s large size can accommodate for multiple uses, it remains light in weight for everyday use. Carry by hand with a short leather handle or swing over your shoulder with a detachable bridle strap.
From work to play
Like all our Billy Tannery bags, the Gote is timelessly stylish from day to night. We vegetable tan our soft goat hide, which is not only a more eco-friendly method but also results in a beautiful rich leather that only gets better over time. This results in a subtly elegant leather work tote bag, guaranteed to never go out of fashion.
The Gote is available in three colours including classic black, tan and a modern forest green, specifically chosen to compliment any outfit. Smart enough for the office, but casual enough for after work drinks, you’ll never need another leather bag for work with the Gote.
Plus, by supporting an independent British brand, you can stand out from the crowd with a one of a kind tote bag unlike any other.
At Billy Tannery, we’re proud to be a sustainable British leather company who promises a lifetime repair guarantee with all our leather goods.
Each of our products are made using our unique, premium goat leather - our specialty that derives from our mission to put an end to wasted by-product. When our founders discovered that thousands of goatskins were discarded each year from the food industry, they had to do something. Now we turn these exceptional hides into luxury handmade bags, wallets and accessories for both men and women.
As well as our high quality material, your leather work bag is proudly made by hand using heavy cotton linings from Manchester’s oldest textile company, as well as solid brass fittings that won’t rust or chip. Each piece is crafted in Somerset in small batches of ten to ensure maximum attention to detail and that we produce as little waste as possible.
