WaterField Designs Unveils the American-Made Franklin Tote

San Francisco, California – WaterField Designs celebrates American manufacturing on the country’s 238th birthday with the introduction of the Franklin Tote. Handmade in the United States from naturally-tanned, full-grain leather and colorful nylon accents, the Franklin Tote stows everything needed for busy day of innovation or recreation. WaterField Designs – a San Francisco manufacturer of custom laptop sleeves, designer bags and cases for digital gear – is committed to local manufacturing and to helping fuel American ingenuity.

“The Franklin embodies everything I love about totes; you’d never know from the clean and simple lines on the outside that the spacious main compartment houses an assortment of intuitive pockets,” explained company owner Gary Waterfield. “It’s easy to toss all my belongings inside – MacBook Pro, iPad, iPhone, sweater, water bottle, paperwork, magazines – and formal enough to fit well into a business environment.”

Secured with sturdy, old-fashioned rivets, the Tote’s leather straps are long enough to sling over a shoulder and short enough to use as handles. Hidden, no-slip pads sewn underneath the straps keep them from sliding off shoulders. A key fob for quick retrieval adds to the organizational appeal of the Franklin Tote.

Franklin Tote features:
* Full-grain, naturally-tanned leather from one of few remaining US tanneries
* Choice of six nylon accent colors: black, copper, flame, green, pearl or pine
* Seven organizational pockets: two interior, open-topped, tablet-sized pockets; one interior zippered pocket with additional pockets inside; an outside magazine pocket with a zippered pocket hidden within
* Elegant look with a rugged American feel that suits any setting – morning, noon or night
