    Designed to offer the best of both worlds, our "Gote" tote bag has a short handle for when you want to grab and go and a detachable shoulder strap for when you need your hands free. Like all Billy Tannery bags, it is made in Somerset in small batches of 10, so attention to detail is guaranteed.

    We tan our goat leather in our own small-batch tannery using traditional bark tanning methods. This technique not only makes our leather environmentally friendly but also allows it to age beautifully, picking up a unique patina throughout its long life. Goat leather makes for a soft tote bag that is also incredibly durable, so there are no compromises.
