At the highest levels of the United States Equestrian Team, each team discipline is managed by a prestigious appointment of a Chef D’Equipe who is responsible for all of that team’s training, travel, and logistics. Our Chef D’Equipe Tote is your very own daily manager!
There is no better everyday tote to manage everything from being your handbag to a trip to the market, your computer tote, or even a weekend getaway bag. Hand constructed by our Master Harness Makers, each piece of premium bridle leather trim is hand-cut and burnished. Paired with actual solid halter hardware, this bag is eminently elegant.
Gently waxed, water-resistant 100 % canvas stands up to the elements while a punch of contrast red lines the bag for easy visibility of all your items. Learn more about the story behind the name on our recent blog about "The Story Behind Our Newest Star, the Rebecca Ray Chef d’Equipe Day Tote."
** Please note - this bag is made from top-quality waxed cotton canvas, the same type of product you expect on your best quality outdoor barn coats. This wax has a very natural patina that scratches and shows the daily wear in a good way. Then, over time, the wax recovers and eventually you are left with a fabulous outdoor patina. You can use wax products on this bag or apply a hairdryer and rub the imperfections and the wax melts immediately and the marks go away. We and most equestrian enthusiasts adore this fabric and its natural look. However, if you don’t care for a patina showing wear, you will not adore this bag.
This bag is the PERFECT size! Not too big, but big enough to carry all the things I need. The straps are long enough so I am able to carry it on my shoulder over a heavy Cleveland-winter coat yet short enough to just grab as I’m getting in and out of the truck. The attention to detail with the beautiful contrasting interior with three (3!!!) generous divided pockets and a fourth zip-top one, makes it easy to find everything. As with all of my RRD purchases, the superior craftsmanship and thoughtful, yet practical design, make sure this piece will be with me for many, many years.
