Create a beautiful, versatile tote bag; a perfect mix of functionality, space and sophisticated simplicity. A companion for a thousand adventures, without ever losing its perfect shape and colour. Timeless sobriety.
Essential design; clean, long-lasting lines that transcend passing fashions or past eras: no studs, no showy metal decorations and no over-conspicuous logos.
There are three compartments for storing notebooks, tablets, files, a make-up bag, wallet or diary.
The handles have a double layer of stitched leather, which result in a better grip, make them more hard-wearing and easier to wear on the shoulder.
The tote bag is fastened with invisible magnets sewn inside the leather to guarantee perfect, long-lasting shape.
Each tote bag has a personalised, rose-gold-coloured pendant, which is attached to a leather string with purple edges.
It also has an outer slit pocket that is practically invisible, yet extremely handy for keeping your mobile phone, passport or boarding pass.
Leather string key ring sewn inside the tote bag so you can find your keys quickly.
The Valier tote Bag comes inside its own purple cotton dust bag, packaged in a precious purple cardboard box with gold-coloured interior and tied with a purple bow.

CAREFULLY SELECTED LEATHERS
The choice of leathers is a highly important part of the bag-making process. We wanted a leather with a textured feel, living, natural, scratchproof and strong. That is why we have selected drummed leather over nappa leather, which is less suitable for bags that should last and withstand a hard ‘working’ life.
Luckily, in Veneto you can find outstanding leather, which is used by the world’s leading companies and most sophisticated craftsmen. For the Valier Tote Bag we use local Venetian sustainable leathers, with Blauer Engel certification – the ecolabel of the Federal Government of Germany- ensuring the utmost respect of health and safety guidelines and the environment: minimum consumption of water throughout the production chain, raw materials from sustainable production, release of low levels of emissions into the atmosphere and easy recycling process.
There is a lot of talk about sustainability these days. What does really mean environmental sustainability? According to the definition in the Oxford Dictionary, sustainability is the “avoidance of the depletion of natural resources in order to maintain an ecological balance”. To achieve environmental sustainability, therefore, it is necessary to act in a way that does not deplete the Earth’s resources. In addition, natural resources should not be irreversibly contaminated. Therefore, water, air, soil and vegetation should be used in a conscientious way and should not be contaminated by human activities and related materials and processes.
One of VALIERVENETIA’s values is the will to contribute to preserve the Earth and to have the lowest possible impact on Nature.
For this reason, and being aware that the production of leather is a complex chain with a high environmental impact, at VALIERVENETIA we have decided to use sustainable leathers certified according to strict and recognised criteria. Our leathers are manufactured by Mastrotto Group from Arzignano (Vicenza, Italy) and are guaranteed by the German governmental certification known as Blauer Engel.
Blauer Engel certification guarantees:
lower consumption of water in the various production phases
use of raw materials produced in a sustainable way
no harmful effects on health and the environment thanks to low emissions content
