Sophistication meets utility, finds Temperance. This tote crosses many categories, from shoulder bag, to large handbag, vertical brief. Whatever you call it, its premium good looks, zippered top, pockets, organization, and harness leather handles won't let you down.


When buckled short, the straps work like a handbag; when extended full length, you can put an arm through the handles and use the Temperance as a shoulder bag. The Temperance tote's a briefcase type organizer panel along with a full-width divider in the main compartment. A full zip main compartment offers security.  The front panel of this tote offers a zippered pocket to stash items you need to grab on the fly. This tote combines several virtues in one design: great looks, sophistication, utility, organization, adaptability.

Perfect Work Tote

I love this for my daily commute. It fits my umbrella, a book and what I need for the day. Great pockets for work badge, bus card etc...I also use it for travel. The simple sophistication of this bag gets me several positive comments.
