Turn the Age of Surveillance into a fashion statement with this newest arrival over at Eleganza Leather on Main Street. Custom-made for Eleganza by artisan leatherworkers in Tuscany, Italy, the calfskin leather purse sports four compartments for organized storage and a vintage look that says your road-ready and up for an adventure. Hand-painted with vegetable tannins as the leather goes through a five-step slow-tanning process, the practice not only achieves the desired, grounded aesthetic but ensures quality as the leather ages and the color deepens. With enough room for sketchbooks and snacks (and maybe a camera?) next to all the necessities, pack wisely and see where the road takes you. Also available in blue, this item is priced at $535.
