One of the most popular dictionary definitions of a tote bag, or simply tote, is ‘a large and strong bag’, thus focusing on its sturdiness and utilitarian nature. However, there is nothing that says a tote bag cannot be fashionable or stylish, without losing any of its usefulness either.
Tote bags are usually unfastened and made of cloth, are hence washable, and come in sizes ranging from large to very large. The popular perception is that you can stuff near about anything into these shoulder bags, and take them wherever you want. From grocery store to school to conference room to meals with friends, they are equally useful everywhere, which means their look and design are endlessly adaptable.
From multiple perspectives, our elegant totes are a must-have in your wardrobe. Entirely hand-stitched and block printed by artisans from across Bengal, and made of completely natural fabrics, their beauty is matched only by their eco-friendliness.
Our range of totes is embellished with zipper pockets, too, in case you wish to segregate some of your more important belongings. Double-stitched canvas handles ensure that they are easy on your shoulder, too. Convenience with style is not an easy-to-achieve combination, but our bags are pretty effortless in that department!
In a recent article, British Vogue declared that “teeny tiny micro bags” are now history. The oversized, rough, and ready tote bag is the flavour of the season and is likely to remain so for some time to come. So much so that renowned fashion houses such as Louis Vuitton, Loewe, Bottega Veneta, and Byredo are devising new ways of attracting attention to their totes.
We are happy to say that we stayed ahead of the trend! Our bags have advocated beauty and utility since the day they went on our shelves, and their aesthetic charm can only grow in the times to come. After all, what better way to focus on Bengal’s heritage than a contemporary product steeped in traditional designs?
