Our recent post about Heath's picnic set introduced us to the rugged good looks and quality craftsmanship of S. Stein Workbags. Designer Sherry Stein, with several of her own lines and years at places like Nike and the Gap under her belt, took a cue from the utility of Doctor's leather bags, bricklayer's canvas bags, military surplus and toolbelts to come up with a collection of bags to hold daily essentials and built to last.
We're always a fan of a good zip tote the new one from S. Stein (pictured above) has a lot to rave about. The bark-tanned suede, cotton and canvas bag features a dual zip that runs down the sides for easy access, a slot for a laptop (up to 15"), plenty of pockets and straps that detach for cleaning. It's available in a small ($350) or large ($370) size from S. Stein.
There's plenty more to love, including a laptop bag, the workhorse (the same used for the Heath picnic set) and a toolbelt (pictured right). We suggest checking out the full line for moms, photographers, gardeners, architects or any other hard-working schlepper you know.
