This is a custom Carrier Tote handmade for Kristen in Rosemont, Illinois. Rather than the regular size one in the shop, she needed a larger one for work and her travels. Kristen was looking for something that looked professional, yet was uniquely hers.

She added a luggage strap to the bag to make this her carry-on bag. The full zipper closure also makes this an ideal travel bag, so things don’t fall out when you need to stow it under the seat.

The Carrier Tote is the most versatile bag in the collection. you can use it as a shoulder tote or messenger style as a crossbody bag.

Kristen added 2 front pockets to the bag for added organization and to make it easier to get belongings quickly.

Inside the bag, you have 5 pockets: 2 water bottle pockets, 2 medium sized ones and 1 large one. This will keep your stuff organized.

Another thing about this size bag is that you can put your 15″ laptop in and a whole lot more. If you carry a lot throughout your day, this is the size you will need.
