The Loren Tote: Our Bestselling Work Tote Bag

Loren is the everyday tote that works for you, not against you.

Many moons ago, when I was an advertising executive in London, I wanted a bag that was large and lightweight because in those days, I spent most of my day on the tube schlepping my bag to work, to meetings, to the gym, and sometimes out to drinks or dinner. So, besides quality and style, weight and capacity were my top factors when looking for the perfect work tote.

Sure, laptops were heavier back then, but I still carry my life in my bag today; my laptop, a book, snacks, a water bottle, and various pouches. Not to mention the multitude of everyday essentials I just can’t live without.

Sound familiar? Then you’ll probably agree that the perfect work bag should be large enough to lug all your things, but also lightweight enough, so it literally won't break your back.

What's your Size?

That’s exactly why I designed the Loren tote. I want you to enjoy your next bag, wear it for many years to come and fill it with everything you need without having to edit things out for fear of it weighing you down.

This beautifully-crafted work bag will help carry all you need for the rigours of a busy working life and bonus, it’s also light enough so that you don’t feel like it’s ‘carry your toddler to work’ day!

With a removable shoulder strap, you can also wear it on your shoulder keeping your hands free on your daily commute - just think of all those extra emails or texts you’ll be able to send in that time!

Our Secret Sauce


As a multi-tasking mum and business owner, my bag has to be durable and survive a lot of wear and tear. That’s why it was important for me to find the best quality leather on the market. It had to be easy to clean, hold its shape well and essentially be scratch proof.

If your life is anything like mine, your bag tends to get thrown around A LOT and having a leather that can stand the test of time and some bumps and bruises, is a total must!

Like all our bags, the Loren Tote is made with our signature lightweight, double-sided leather.

On the outside, a smooth and buttery soft leather, which is super easy to spot clean (try a gentle rub with a fragrance-free, oil-free, baby wipe).

On the inside, a beautiful contrast coloured suede which essentially functions as the bags’ lining.

What does this mean for you? Say goodbye to shoulder pain and backache, the lightest leather bags on the market are here! I kid you not, this bag is as light as your Starbucks Venti latte!


Our bags are handcrafted in Rome by a team of skilled artisans who have been working with leather since 1959. The whole process is 100% Made in Italy, from the initial prototype to the end product.

What does this mean for you? It means you’re getting the very best quality product, at the best price, straight from the source.


As you can imagine, everyone's idea of the perfect everyday work bag is very different. So, I've extended the collection to feature a Tall Loren Tote for laptops and work files, and a Midi Loren Tote designed for when you still want to look polished but don't need as much 'stuff'.
