Conscientious consumption is becoming more visible. You can also do reviews. There are many reviews on Everlane and Elizabeth Suzann’s products, Grana, Only Child, Grana and Cuyana that you can read unsponsored. My goal is to reduce waste and love bags. These are some similarities and differences that I observed between the bags. (also, you can read the whole discussion on reddit here). First, the Madewell Transport Tote in black with tan handle measures 14.5 inches by 14.25 inches by 6 inches by 6.25 inches. The strap drops to 8.25 inches. Cuyana Classic Leder Tote measures 13.25″ x 18.25(L)x 5.25(W) inches and has a 9.8 inch drop. So the Cuyana tote is a a little shorter, but a lot wider. Cuyana bags have soft leather that is soft and can be folded inwards to shrink the width.

Although the two totes look very similar, I believe the Cuyana bag is superior.

The leather in the Cuyana bag is absolutely amazing. The leather is super soft and has a wonderful smell. The smell reminds me of the leather of Balenciaga bags, even though the textures of the leather are different. Madewell Totes’ leather feels stiff, and it smells cheap.

The difference between the two leathers is likely due to the fact the Cuyana bag is made in America and the Madewell bag is made in China. Cuyana, however, is known for producing high quality products.

The Madewell Tote strap is slightly shorter but can be very useful when carrying it over a jacket. I think the Cuyana bag might fit, while the Madewell tote most definitely wouldn’t.

Cuyana also offers three options for the Cuyana Tote: the tall, classic and zip-up versions.

You can clearly see that I prefer the Cuyana bag to the Madewell. If we wanted to discuss all my totes (including the Mansur Gavriel Tote and the Everlane Tote), then I’d have to say that the Everlane bag is my favourite. I like the slimmer shape and adjustable straps. The two pockets inside have snap closures. Mansur Gavriel can be used for taking things inside, but it also holds its shape extremely well. In general, I don’t like soft totes. However, if I could choose just one it would probably be the Cuyana Tote.

Madewell Vs. Leather Tote: Fashionable Vs. Cuyana

This post received a lot of attention, so I felt it was worth updating!

I’ve since sold my Madewell bag because it was starting to collect dust in my closet. When my kids were younger, I carried it around as a bag large enough for diapers and supplies. They’re now bigger so I like a small crossbody or tote. Another Madewell bag was purchased, this time one of the crossbody travel totes. The quality is much better than it was when I first bought the bag. This strap has a thinner leather material and looks more like synthetic leather than leather. Instead of using a clasp, the strap has a series brass knobs instead.

While I still own my Able Tote, the main reason I don’t use that often is because it’s too colorful. Recently, I was given a Tirhas saddlebag by them. I love it!

I worked with Cuyana last spring to promote an event in Portland, in exchange for some gifted merchandise. Because my previous tall tote was just too large for me, I decided on the Classic Tote in caramel. I LOVE the Classic tote. I love the caramel colour. It is so richer and more warm than ever before. The bag has a great price and I highly recommend it!

When I first started looking for leather bags online, it was a long time ago that Grechen became one of my favourite bloggers. Fast-forward several years later, I discovered that my little collection of leather totes had been compiled by me while searching for the Madewell Transport Tote. After using them regularly for the last one to two years, I think it’s time I share my insights. This is what the internet has made possible. You can read feedback on almost anything before you buy it. I mean, how valuable is that? It’s like a bunch of women (because we are usually the buyers) in the aisle of the item you want to buy, and you can ask her, “How heavy is that?” “Did it break in okay?” “Is it comfortable?” It can be a rabbit hole if you’re not careful though. You can find my direct reviews below on the Zip Transport Tote, Mamuye Leather Tote, Fashionable and Tall Leather Tote. While it’s strong enough to provide structure, its natural grain has begun to show through. I am able to make it simple by sealing the leather and not having to worry about spills and stains.

My least favorite thing about this bag: It is too small to be used as a tote. You can carry your bag across the body or drape it on your forearm. Sometimes, I just wish I could carry the bag over my shoulder with the shorter handles. However, logistics do not work.

China. Material: Leather Strap + Brass Details. Overall, this bag is light. Zip Transport Tote has an interior pocket and is lined. This bag is well-shaped because the leather is quite thick. The bag retains its original form even when it is filled with chock.

Review: Cuyana Structured Leather Tote

Tote bags are my favorite style when it comes down to a bag for work. They’re easy, hold everything, and go with everything. Although there are many totes available, the Cuyana Structured Leather Tote is my favorite. It’s basically the professional version of the Cuyana Classic Leather Tote . It is more structured than its predecessor, which is why it has the same name. This bag was the subject of a detailed video review on Youtube. You can view the full video by clicking here. To keep my bag organized, I bought the Cuyana Tote insert to fit inside my bag. There are many options to choose from so that you can complement or match the interior of your bag. It’s a little expensive but it serves its purpose well.

. The style can be worn for every occasion, because it is so soft and warm.

The other thing I love about this tote is that it has two leather ties on the side. For extra decoration, I prefer to leave them hanging on the sides. I think it reminds me a little of the Celine Beltbag. The real purpose of the side ties, however, is that you can attach them to the top and create an organized look.

The quality of this tote is excellent. It’s a black leather pebbled. I have been using it now for 6 months and the signs of wear are very minor. There are no nicks, color loss, transfer or wear to the corners. But I’ll say this: My bag almost always goes from my car on to my desk at work, so it’s rarely being “used”.

It has thick straps that make it extremely comfortable even when you carry a lot. If you’re in the market for a new tote, work or otherwise, I’d highly recommend the Cuyana Structured Leather Tote . It can be used for work or weekend, especially when it is available in other colors.
