The Gote is our take on the classic leather tote bag. Large enough for a weekend trip but light enough for everyday use, the Gote is the most versatile bag you can own.
Pre-order Chestnut to secure one in our next batch delivering in mid-July. Forest delivering in early August.
The Gote is a unisex goat leather tote bag large enough to double-up as weekend luggage. Fully lined with heavy UK-finished cotton, there are three internal slip pockets with one designed specifically to hold up to a 15" laptop. Handles and a new detachable shoulder strap are made from sturdy vegetable-tanned bridle leather.
Designed to offer the best of both worlds, the Gote 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.
W40cm x H38cm x D12cm
