Axis Florence tote
Beargrass Leather -- Inspired by Montana, Crafted by Hand
Axis Florence Tote
The Axis Florence Tote combines our favorite style with our most sought after leather. It is constructed of half hair-on-hide axis deer (front) and half full--grain leather (back). This design is a culmination of all the best parts of Beargrass Leather goods. The tote features a classic design and shows us our signature crossing-saddle stitch. The handle is rolled and stitched with cotton piping to provide an amazing feel in the hand or on the shoulder. It features an interior 7" tall by 7.5" wide pocket for a cellphone and slim wallet. Comes with matching Field Notes cover.
This hobo style tote is classic and simple. And it is quickly becoming a signature style of Beargrass Leather. For those not familiar with Axis, it is a fallow deer from India that keeps its fawn spots throughout its life. Axis is not endangered nor threatened. In fact, there are many Axis living wild in Texas! Many of our hides come directly from Texas.

Leather as a Natural Product:
Real, full-grain leather is a natural product. Each hide has a certain amount of “irregularities” which those in the leather business call “character.” Some hides even come with brand marks (which are awesome), nicks, bites, bumps, scars, and other awesome items of character. In the end, this is a sign that your leather is real, unadulterated, one of a kind, premium leather that will last for years.
Handmade in USA:
Every Beargrass Leather is crafted by either Samantha or Benjamin in scenic Montana.
For most Beargrass Leather products, we recommend Montana Pitch Blend for care and conditioning. Montana pitch blend performs two roles: conditioning and protection. The mink oil will soften the leather while the wax will help protect the leather from weather and wear. Montana Pitch Blend may darken leather, but most leather will darken over time.
For bags made of hair, simply wipe with a damp cloth with either simple water or a mild soapy water. Do not soak. Our hair-on-hide leather is created mostly for use as throws, pillows, rugs, and bags, so it can stand up to some intense use.
Most of our products are tanned and dyed by the tannery. As any color or dye, it may rub off if vigorously rubbed or wet. Over years of use, very few products have shown any rub-off of color. Nevertheless, the use of a good conditioner like Montana Pitch Blend with natural oils and waxes will help . But in the meantime, use caution.
