THE FOUNT leather tote bags that gets THE most recognized. Especially if you live in Cleveland, Ohio! These leather tote bags are the IT bags. Pinterest pinned popular. Not unusual to be out and about (with this leather tote bag) for someone to ask, “Is that a FOUNT?”
FOUNT bags are created by a local Cleveland design and production company that began in late 2013. Creating gorgeous leather bags and accessories for men and women. Talented (and super friendly!) husband and wife team (Philip and Jackie) started FOUNT as a side project, but quickly expanded into 2 brick and mortar stores (Cleveland and Columbus locations), an online shop, and available at many other local events like the Cleveland Flea. Remember seeing them on the LeBron James show, Cleveland Hustles? Or remember reading about them HERE?
