Freja Tote Guide

Freja Tote Guide

A comparison of our three larger tote styles, designed for work, weekend, and to make all the moments in between seamless. 

Let's dive right in!

The Size

The Linnea (left) is our classic tote and very first design. It's slimmer than your average tote at 12.5 x 10.5 x 7". Fits up to 14" laptops and weighs 2.1 lbs. 

The Paloma (middle) is a structured, wider tote with 3 separate compartments. Measures 18 x 11.5 x 6", and weighs 2.6 lbs. 

The Lafayette (right) is our widest tote with one main compartment, and measures 20 x 11 x 5.5". Ultra lightweight at only 2 lbs. 

All totes have an extra strap long drop of 10.5 inches for comfort and ease of wear over even the bulkiest of winter coats.


The Interior 

All three totes are perfect for the office and everyday use, with the main differences coming down to your preference of design, structure, and compartments vs pockets for organization.

The Linnea (left) has 2 main compartments separated by a middle zipped divider that's perfect for holding documents and other flat items. Features 5 pockets and 3 card slots along the two sides of the bag, and includes a detachable key leash. Magnetic top closure. This is a semi-structured bag, it will stand on its own empty or filled, but will also stretch to accommodate bigger items. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being the most structured, I would rate the Linnea as a 6. The leather will soften over time with use. 

The Paloma (middle) has 3 separate sections - 2 flatter compartments with magnetic snap closures and and one main zipped compartment. There are five pockets and 1 small zipped pocket strategically placed throughout the interior.  This is our most structured bag and will retain its shape (9 rating for structure). It was designed with large laptops and slim files in mind.

The Lafayette (right) has one main compartment, with 4 pockets along the sides and one detachable key leash. If you like open totes with a lot of capacity, this is the bag for you! Double magnetic closure, and also a 6 rating for structure.


The Design  

We really tried to make each tote unique with its own personality, which I will try to encapsulate with three adjectives each.

The Linnea (left) is classic, reliable, and quintessential. It's our interpretation of a modern work tote, and remains our top bestseller! Lined in our signature merlot vegan leather. 

The Paloma (middle) is polished, edgy, and sharp. This bag means business, and is guaranteed to pull together any look. Lined in soft vegan microsuede (color will vary between batches).

The Lafayette (right) is effortless, sophisticated, and refreshing. The pinched handles and subtle panel detailing are sure to turn heads. Lined in our signature merlot vegan microsuede. 

And that's a wrap! I hope these specifications were helpful. If you want even more, we went in-depth on the design process for each bag (Linnea) (Paloma) (Lafayette) here.
