Introducing: The Betty Zip Tote
by Lauren Steinhardt on 12 May, 2015
New for spring, this waxed canvas beauty is charming yet practical - just like you! This bag was inspired by Rebecca’s grandmother Betty, a smart, no-nonsense woman who was always classy and put together. Just like Betty, this bag is all about TCB without sacrificing style. The classic tote design is enhanced by a nylon zip top to keep your stuff secure. Soft leather straps are generously sized to carry comfortably on the shoulder, with brass ring tabs for optional cross-body strap.
The small size Betty makes a wonderful everyday bag; it’s big enough to fit a tablet or book, with internal organizer pockets for your smaller stuff. The flat profile allows it to slip under your arm with ease. Hop on the bike with optional cross-body strap.
Big Betty is the perfect work bag! Big enough for a 15” MacBook, file folders, binders etc, this bad girl holds it together while multi-tasking at being completely adorable. Generous internal pockets organize power cables, gadgets, etc. Add optional cross-body strap to lighten the load.
The Betty comes in three nature-inspired designs, all hand-stitched with faux suede appliques on water-resistant waxed canvas: Navy Anise featuring cheerful yellow flowers, Charcoal Twins with green tendrils, and Plum Honesty inspired by Chinese money plants.
Like all Queen Bee gear, this beauty is handmade in Portland, OR from strong, durable materials. You can see the full selection here.
