The Newburyport, Massachusetts-based leather workshop Todder creates durable products infused with passion for quality. Their philosophy is built upon New England’s extreme, ever-changing weather elements and begins with 100% USA vegetable tanned leather.
At the heart of this custom-designed leather tote is an artistic collaboration between one of New England’s finest leather workshops and one of the world’s most treasured art museums. This artistically-inspired partnership culminates with the corporate seal of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, designed by Gardner’s friend, prominent Boston artist Sarah de St. Prix Wyman Whitman (1842-1904) in 1900.
The motto of the Museum’s seal, ‘C’est mon plaisir’ – ‘It’s my pleasure’ – is stamped on this crowd-favorite Joppa Todder leather tote. This simple, every-day carry tote features a sleek pocket for smaller accessories with the Museum's logo stamped on the pocket, and a 14 inch lanyard for keys – we recommend a Gardner Crest Key Fob. In true Todder x ISGM style, the tote has an outside tassel – the perfect accent for this tote!
