Easton Tote Featuring Celdas Art by Autotype


As an evolution in our ongoing collaborative partnership with Moore & Giles, Autotype has designed an exclusive set of abstract artwork to compliment a select collection of timeless Moore & Giles bags.  Each piece of artwork is thoughtfully designed to flatter the construction of the bag on which it's placed - adding a minimal and understated, yet interesting characteristic to an already beautifully crafted piece.

Artwork: Celdas

The Easton Tote Itself

Designed by Moore & Giles: Only a small handful of tanneries worldwide still employ the practices and techniques of old-world artisans, and the Tuscan tannery where the vegetable-tanned Modern Saddle is crafted is one of them: a shrinking breed of true heritage craftsmen. As such, no chemicals are added to set the dyes, so this leather will continue evolving with you: it’ll begin to patina with everyday exposure and use.

  • Color: Modern Saddle
  • 11"L x 8"H  6"W
  • Adjustable Shoulder Strap
  • Leather Envelope Inside

About the Leather

Modern Saddle – Modern Saddle is vegetable tanned leather crafted in a small Tuscan tannery. A process that requires an artisan skillset and old-world practices that remain in only a handful of tanneries worldwide. Without the addition of chemicals to set the dyes, the tanning process never truly ends. You will notice as you use your bag that the leather begins to patina, gradually darkening as it's exposed to the sun, the natural oils on your hands, and the bumps and scrapes of everyday use. This is the process we want you to be aware of and revel in: the bag growing more beautiful with use and age and becoming even more unique to you. Over the course of its life, you can expect Modern Saddle to evolve from its initial golden color, burnishing a rich shade of dark caramel.

Standard ground orders will be processed within 24-48 hours from the time of purchase. Please note that from purchase production for this handcrafted exclusive bag will take 2-3 weeks.
