It doesn’t take much to make us nostalgic, but nothing causes us to yearn for the season of unsullied notebooks and new homeroom teachers more than this oversized bag. Constructed of sturdy, hand-bleached black-and-white canvas and thick black leather straps, the 16-by-18-inch tote is large enough to hold a laptop and a massive social studies book or two. The split interior pocket—stamped in copper with the Cook & Gates logo—is ideal for your Lisa Frank pencils and trusty TI-89. Each bag comes with a certificate of authenticity signed and numbered by the designer.
- Bag is 18 inches wide and 16 inches tall; leather straps are 28 inches long; interior pockets measure 2-by-5 ½ inches and 9 ½-by-7 ½ inches; dye pattern varies.
