    Great quality!

    These handles are so lovely, and with the holes pre punched I had my bag finished about 10 minutes after the mailman dropped off my order!

    Awesome Leather Tote Kit

    Klum Kit really makes a tote bag look finished with the leather straps - especially with the brass detailed rivets. Easy to follow instructions. Also I have sewed the leather straps in place with my sewing machine and a size 18 needle.

    Perfect Strap Kit

    Perfect leather strap detail to finish your tote with. Easy to install with hand tools. I use them on the canvas totes I make for family and friends. You can also sew them on with size 18 needle and thick thread. I do both the rivet hardware and sew the straps in place for a heavy duty work tote.
