"EILEIN" Waxed Cotton Zip Tote Bag (Leather Free) - STORM/MOSS

- +

Part of the "Dachaidh" collection, inspired by the awe inspiring and ever changing landscapes of the North East of Scotland.  "Dachaidh" takes inspiration from rugged coasts and the iconic sandy beaches by the North Sea, to the wilds of the Cairngorms.


Inspired by the Scottish Cairngorms, taking inspiration from the unique colour palette of the dramatic, mountainous scenery of one of my favourite places in Scotland. Named after the gorgeous Loch An Eilein in Rothiemurcus, which holds a castle ruin in its waters. 


A much requested, completely leather free design. The Fernweh UK "Eilein" tote waxed canvas tote bag is made from high quality Scottish waxed canvas, lined with durable striped ticking cloth fabric. The straps are made from high quality, thick UK made cotton webbing straps, with new for 2022 an ecru cotton label. 


All handcrafted in our studio in Aberdeen.

Waxed cotton canvas is a water resistant cotton which creases and marks as it wears. It means it creates a completely unique product, and becomes a visual representation of the adventure's it has been on. These marks are an inherent characteristic of the cloth, adding to the antique, vintage feel of the product.

Recommended care: 

-As with all waxed canvas products, do not iron as this will cause the wax to melt.- Hand wash only with cold water and leave to dry away from natural light.

- If bag is particularly dirty, use a soft brush to wipe away excess dirt before cleaning, using a mild soap/detergent and cold water on more stubborn areas.

- As with all waxed products, re-wax every 6-12 months to restore waxed cotton to top condition.

Sustainability & Transparency

 All bags are handmade by me in my studio, allowing me to minimise waste, and reuse all scraps wherever possible. £1 from each sale is donated to Trees For Life, who are rewilding the Caledonian Forest. You can view our grove here.

The waxed cotton is produced in Scotland, from a factory who have been pioneers of the waterproofing textiles industry since 1864.  You can read more about the materials we use and why we use them here.
