The Best Tote Bags for Work and Leisure

Which Is Your All-Time Favourite Tote Bag?

The old one you already own or a lush new one you've just seen?

Perhaps you’ve got a new job, a promotion or, maybe your old Tote Bag just looks rather tired and dilapidated. Whatever the reason, it might now be the right time to consider a new Tote Bag and how it can help to make your work life that little bit easier. At Catwalk Collection Handbags, totes are available in numerous colourways, shapes and sizes so there should be one to suit your exact needs.

Leather Tote Bag with Shoulder Strap for Work - Adele


What elevates a Tote Bag from being just ordinary to becoming your all-time favourite? Which features are the most important to you? Do you like a zip top, for example, or a longer drop on the handles. Would a separate shoulder strap or crossbody strap make all the difference? An extra strap gives even greater carrying convenience by virtue of being hands-free.


The massive popularity and the main reason we love Totes is due to their large size. They stand up to everyday demands, reliably carrying the entirety of your life from point A to point B and beyond. Generally, what Tote Bags offer is a stylish way to transport vast quantities of belongings, whether essentials for travel or the entire contents of your office desk. Items such as laptops are not a problem. When you need to add shopping during a daily commute, the Tote Bag does the job nicely and without complaint. Perfect for fashionistas living the gruelling city life.

Large Leather Tote Bags for the Workplace


Big Tote Bags are so handy for holding smaller handbags when travelling. You can also throw in cosmetic bags, passport holders, jewellery pouches and camera cases, too.


Slimline North-South and East-West Tote Bags, with their sleek sophisticated profile, are excellent for holding paperwork, files and folders whereas bucket style bags are ideal for swallowing up bulkier items.


Having a good selection of compartments and pockets can assist in the organisation of contents, making it easier to find exactly what you want at a moments notice.


Do you prefer a light coloured lining or a dark coloured lining? Both have their advantages. A dark colour doesn’t show the dirt quite so easily, whereas a light coloured lining makes it easier to locate contents. To have the best of both worlds, why not choose a Tote Bag with a dark coloured lining but keep contents bright and colourful.

Soft Leather Work Bags for Women


For many working individuals across the corporate world, the daily uniform is fairly constant, we’re talking blacks, navy blues, neutral greys. You have the option to choose a similar colour to blend in and conform or, pick a contrasting colour to stand out in a crowd. It’s perfectly fine to go with understated elegance; sleek blacks and rich brown leathers complement all situations work-related. Alternatively, if you’re a woman who wants to be noticed in the workplace, a pop of red against a navy-blue suit gives an assertive air of confidence. For the truly independent woman, throw fashion trends to the wind, be happy and just pick your favourite colour.


Leather is by far the best option as not only is it extremely durable but it looks good, too. The vast majority of leathers are not waterproof, so you’ll need to keep your leather Tote Bag under an umbrella with yourself when it rains. Tote Bags made from Saffiano leather are, however, water resistant which might be a better choice for those commuting in the British climate. Saffiano has the advantage of being more lightweight, too.

Start by laying out all the items that you want to put inside your Tote Bag. This will give you some idea of the size required. If you have an iPad or laptop, use a tape measure to check dimensions. Write down a list of features that are essential. A second list might contain features that would be appreciated but not absolutely necessary.

The omnipresent staple of the handbag world is undoubtably the Tote! Surely every woman owns a Tote Bag. They have become somewhat of a permanent fixture in our collective wardrobes. Tote Bags seem to suit every body type and look good with all fashion trends.

Briefcases are, of course, the most traditional, formal laptop bag style but we have taken the design one step further to create the perfect bag for any professional woman who needs an easy yet instantly smart way to carry their laptop and other items, such as paper documents or magazines. You can even pop a packed lunch inside!

Helena is made with vast amounts of gorgeous crisp, crunch vintage leather that has a unique high gloss shine and designer creases that add character. All are exquisitely lined with our silky, signature fabric. A detachable, crossbody shoulder strap enables the bag to be carried hands-free. Each bag comes with our iconic Cat Logo Bag Charm, too.

There are plenty of compartments and pockets to organise contents and we provide a soft, padded laptop cover for your most precious possession. It's ideal for anyone who works a couple of days at home and a few days in the office.

Stylish Leather Laptop Bags for Women

So popular is Helena that we have introduced the same style in a new leather that we have recently developed; the Bridget Ladies Extra Large Leather Briefcase is made from gorgeous vegetable tanned leather which has a high buff polish. Our Vegetable Tanned Leather has been specially treated to give a smooth surface and a finely polished, high grade finish resulting in beautiful looking leather.

Water Resistant Leather Handbags and Tote Bags to beat the UK Weather

The majority of leather handbags and tote bags do not like to get wet. Moisture of any kind such as rainwater, can cause the natural dyes in the leather to run. It can leave unsightly patches in the surface of the leather known as water marks or tide lines. Rainwater can alter the suppleness of leather, causing it to eventually become brittle and crack. Dampness encourages molds and fungus to grown.

Genuine leather is porous and because of that it cannot be 100% waterproof. However, we have developed some designs with a special water resistant coating which should help you negotiate the wet British weather. We call this type of leather Saffiano.

Leather Handbags and Totes that can cope with Wet British Weather

 Rainwater splashes will simply run off the surface of Saffiano leather; a textured leather with a cross-hatch pattern made from genuine cow hide. It is created by being pressed firmly with a machine then finished with a special wax treatment that makes it resistant to stains, scratches and rain drops. 

We have several designs in Saffiano Leather:

PALOMA - Large Tote Bag

KATHARINA - Large Tote Bag with Additional Detachable Strap

TIFFANY - Small Round Grab Bag with Additional Detachable Strap

FLORENCE - Small Crossbody Bag

AMANDA - Crossbody Bag
