The Alexander Kraft Monte Carlo Bertie Tote bag
The Bertie tote bag is the perfect all-rounder bag for all sorts of occasions, working equally well as a briefcase or laptop bag as a classic tote for a trip to the beach (or even to the grocery shop). Made from sturdy yet resilient off-white cotton-linen, the bag features high-quality leather handles and horizontal stripes in a sublime cognac color, inspired by the color scheme of Alexander Kraft’s dog Bertie, after whom the bag is named. Some of the leather elements (all in vegetable leather, treated without any chemicals) have even been hand-stitched, a sign of a truly artisanal production. The tote bag is fully lined and features 2 interior pockets, one smaller one with a zipper (for valuables and items such as keys, phone etc.) and another, larger and deeper one that can accommodate a tablet or even a small laptop.
As many 2 leather fastener on the side allow to adjust the depth of the bag, and 2 magnetic buttons allow to close to the tote while on the go. The bag even features a custom leather tag with the embossed profile of Bertie and his name that can be worn on the bag or used as a key-holder. fans of Alexander Kraft know, bags, and especially vintage bags from the world’s most legendary luxury houses, have been a long-standing interest (not to say obsession) of Kraft. Using his knowledge accumulated over more than 2 decades of collecting the world’s most sought-after, iconic bags, Kraft decided to launch his own bag collection in 2020. All bags are produced in a small, family-owned artisanal “bottega” (workshop) in Umbria, Italy, that usually only creates and sells its own products or realizes individual orders of highly complex, bespoke commissions which even include leather-covered Vespa scooters, bikes and even cars.
