Take a walk on the wild side.

NancyGonzalezFuchsiaTote_butterboom_apr2013Colombian born Nancy Gonzalez draws on the natural beauty of her homeland for inspiration to create covetable bags using precious, exotic skins with a vibrant, energetic palette. This tote is a prime example of the way that she combines classic uncomplicated shapes with an attention to detail, colour and texture.

Hand crafted by local artisans in Gonzalez’s native Colombia, this crocodile skin tote features a traditional silhouette with rolled top-handles that slip comfortably over your shoulder. As you’d expect from a tote, the luxuriously suede-lined interior, with zip-pockets and slip-pockets, is spacious, the dimensions, 35.5cm high by 38.5cm wide, mean that it’s comfortably big enough for most laptops with room to spare, making it the ideal office bag.

What sets it apart from your average tote though, besides the exotic skin, is the eye-popping fuchsia shade and charm details, which have been laser cut from croc skin. Also available in orange or understated taupe, this timeless tote is guaranteed to see you through several seasons in the urban jungle.
