This clean and simple tote is made of 3-4 oz. veg tan rough side out. I doubled the top portion to support the straps where they don't fall over. The bag measures roughly 13" x 18" with no pockets, and a 9" drop on the straps. The mule ear detail is reminiscence of old time cowboy boots. This is a good, sturdy piece that will get better and better with time.
