The Transport Tote: Tassel-Tie Edition
Product Details
What goes into our signature ruggedly cool carryall? Here it is by the numbers: 2 pieces of vegetable-tanned leather are used for the body of the tote. 8 inches of strap: long enough to sling over your shoulder, but short enough to hold as a top handle. 1 interior side zip pocket to keep your keys, phone and wallet at the ready. 4 hand-knotted ties anchoring the straps. How often you'll reach for it? 500 gazillion times.  
  • Made of semi vegetable-tanned leather with a softly worn waxed finish that deepens into a distinctive patina.
  • Please note: As it is made of a natural material, each bag varies slightly in texture and color.
  • Interior pocket.
  • 8" handle drop.
  • 14"H x 14"W x 6"D.
  • Import.
Free shipping exclusively for Madewell Insiders

The Transport Tote: Tassel-Tie Edition

The Transport Tote: Tassel-Tie Edition is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love and the Dried Rose is perfection! I've been loving on the Transport Tote for a while but did not love the colors until the dried rose came out and I finally splurged! The dried rose is almost more of a light tan with a rose gold hue and its just perfect if you want something that's a little more neutral than the standard black or tan. Great size and holds a computer and everything with ease but retains its shape well if you do not have it full. The zipper pocket is wonderful and is actually pretty roomy, it can hold my keys, phone, and a few other small items. If you are looking for a simple, timeless, leather tote you can carry to work, school, and out... this is definitely it! Worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous, functional bag. This tote is absolutely beautiful. It is well crafted, with buttery, rosy leather and an ample amount of space for everyday use. I will say that as this is an unfinished leather, maintenance is incredibly important for this bag to remain beautiful. My preference is beeswax, though I certainly recommend in depth research about leather care. Overall, this is a fantastic bag. I look forwards to having it for a long time to come!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful bag and AMAZING CUSTOMER SERVICE The bag itself is practical and gorgeous. I've been using it everyday for work and it's truly a perfect size for all your daily essentials (notebooks, wallet, phones, hamburgers & fries). But the customer service at Madewell is where it's at! When my merchandise came in the mail, I noticed a few scratches. After taking a few photos, I immediately contacted customer service. Within 24 hours, Madewell staff has written back to my request and sent me the price adjustment. Everyone was extremely helpful - definitely will come back for more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect bag! Love this tote! Stands up on its own, lightweight, beautiful color, no hardware -- I use it fulltime! I also have the black & tan. The bonus -- 25% off that day and the color I planned to purchase next. All my other bags sit on the closet shelf. To top it off, it was delivered in perfect condition!
