Everlane just refreshed some of their bag offerings, and this new tote looks really promising. I like the smooth, simple leather look, and this burgundy red is a great color. (Am I alone in thinking there’s a difference between burgundy and cordovan (which I think of having more brown/caramel tones than burgundy?) Discuss.)
Anyhoo: this bag is an interesting new “bio leather alternative” that is exclusive to Everlane. As they note on their site:
Made with a Bio-Alloy™ and Bio-PU leather alternative from plant-based proteins and an FSC-certified Lenzing™ viscose backing, it’s expertly crafted to feel like “leather”, but with a lower environmental footprint.
The bio-based material is lightweight, delivers superior color vibrance and performance while reducing GHG emissions by over 90% and water use by 83% compared to virgin, chrome-tanned leather. Carry on.
Nice. The tote is $270 at Everlane (where they also have an Italian leather tote for around the same price if you’d prefer that.)
(Random shoutout to the Everlane backpack, which I really like – it feels a lot sleeker somehow than your typical backpack.)
