WaterField Designs Unveils the American-Made Franklin Tote For Independence Day

WaterField Designs is celebrating American manufacturing on the country’s 238th birthday and 4th of July week with their announcement of the new WaterField Designs Franklin Tote and their “American Made” company video.

WaterField Designs is a San Francisco manufacturer of custom laptop sleeves, designer bags and cases for digital gear and is committed to local manufacturing and to helping fuel American ingenuity. Like all of the company.’s products, the Franklin Tote is handmade in the United States. It features naturally-tanned, full-grain leather and colorful nylon accents, and can stow everything you need for busy day of innovation or recreation.

“The Franklin embodies everything I love about totes; you’d never know from the clean and simple lines on the outside that the spacious main compartment houses an assortment of intuitive pockets,” says company owner Gary Waterfield. “It’s easy to toss all my belongings inside — laptop, sweater, water bottle, paperwork, magazines — and formal enough to fit well into a business environment.”

Secured with sturdy, old-fashioned rivets, the Tote’s leather straps are long enough to sling over a shoulder and short enough to use as handles. Hidden, no-slip pads sewn underneath the straps keep them from sliding off shoulders. A key fob for quick retrieval adds to the organizational appeal of the Franklin Tote.
