YOUR INSPIRATION

I have a (tote) dream: a bag of softest leather that goes anywhere, any time but not heavy, I CAN'T suffer for fashion. Black of course! Needs to carry my book/ipad but MUST NOT fall apart. Must be secure so zip top please and it must timeless not "fad". Painted leather in platinum inside will allow me to actually see what's in there! I need to acknowledge Mimco's 20 years - hence platinum and emerald stone. Why me? I'm no designer but I love Mimco and I love bags, please make my (tote) dream come true - for under $1000!

DETAILS & DIMENSIONS

This is a tote bag with large embossed leather button on front, double strap, closes with zip at top plus platinum button/mimco round token, two mimci buttons on reverse (consider substituting with platinum hardware) plus leather dangle that includes emerald green stone (signifying 20 year anniversary) and tassel. Should be made using ultra soft but excellent quality calf skin leather with subtle pebble texture. Lies flat, so easy to pack!

Dimensions: Height (not inc strap) = 34cm / straps = 20cm drop / length top opening = 48cm/ base length = 33cm/base width = 22cm
Strap width = 1.5cm

MATERIALS & HARDWARE

Bag has very little hardware as needs to be light weight tote. I need beautiful quality calf skin leather with fine pebble texture. Needs subtle but quality finishes to ensure durability. Platinum hardware signifies 20th Year anniversary. Zip must be durable with small Mimco token/button as inclusion. Reverse with smaller Mimco buttons (see diagram) embossed or as platinum hardware. Large Mimco button on front is embossed. Dangle feature hangs from the base of strap on front of bag and needs to include beautiful emerald green stone (signifying 20 year anniversary) + platinum hardware (series of small studded rings).
