The Suburbanite Handbag has a traditional tote shape and simple lines, but the corded handles and single adjustable shoulder strap provide a classy twist. There are several exterior and interior pockets to keep you organized. The purse can be closed with either two magnetic snaps or a zipper. The finishing method is unique and simple to execute.

The Suburbanite can be made in three sizes:-

  • The small is perfect for carrying the basics,
  • The medium is a great everyday bag,
  • The large is roomy enough for a small laptop.
