Treat yourself (or someone else) to a special leather handbag to carry your tools and treasures in style.

Handmade with fine leather - rugged beauty that warms the heart and ages with soul.

Over the years T&C Mouse has enjoyed owning a succession of large, leather tote bags. Realizing the increasing difficulty of finding good quality leather bags in the 21st Century, T&C Mouse undertook to develop her own line of sophisticated, yet rugged and functional, fine quality leather bags.

These are some of our designs and are available now. Interested in a bespoke item? Please email your request to, or use the inquiry form here.

All leather items are made by hand using fine quality, traditional materials – full-grain vegetable-tanned leather, brass hardware, and waxed linen thread.
