The Essentials Upcycled Tote

Limited Edition Collection

In honor of Earth Day, Mark Cross has produced a special, limited-edition tote made completely of our surplus materials. Furthering our sustainability goals, we remain committed to utilizing existing resources to craft new collections.

The Essentials Upcycled Tote is a unique holdall—available in six eye-catching color trims—featuring upcycled leather accents and upcycled cotton twill linings. Combined with the company's iconic signature MC logo in recycled polyester jacquard, it's an equal parts sustainable, stylish, and timeless choice.

The collection was shot by travel & lifestyle expert and founder of Yolo Journal, Yolanda Edwards. Set against the picturesque coastline of northern California amongst the beauty of Stinson Beach and Point Reyes. We have been following Yolanda’s inspiring travels for years now and got to hear from her firsthand just how special the shoot location is to her:

“I’ve been lucky to travel to many beautiful places in the world, but Northern California is definitely one of my favorites. I always go to Stinson Beach, asI have dear friends who live there. I wake up, walk to the beach with a cup of coffee in hand, and watch the seals in the waves, take pictures of sand dollars, and meet the locals walking their dogs.

Mount Tamalpais is right there, with some of the most epic hikes ever. Further northabout a half an hour is Point Reyes and Marshall, where we’ll go for lunch at the Marshall Store

—eating oysters from right there, looking out over Tomales Bay. All of this is less than 2 hours from the SFO airport—but feels like it’s a world away.”

Showcasing the natural wonders of America’s coastline, our upcycled collection celebrates our treasured resources while we continue our commitment towards a more sustainable future.

Also available from our Essentials Upcycled Collection is our range of accessories: the Essentials Leather Pouch, the Sanitizer Mini Case and the Recycled Glass Bottle with Leather Holder. Discover the full collection.
