Our colorfully-patterned totes are crafted using excess fabric from neighboring furniture factories – fabric that would otherwise have ended up in the landfill. With a 100% cotton duck base (woven in the USA), 100% cotton canvas liner (also woven in the USA) and 100% cotton webbing, our totes are sustainable, stylish, and sure to last.

Care: Machine wash cold, lay flat to dry.
