10 Easy Pieces: Springlike Canvas Totes


10 Easy Pieces: Springlike Canvas Totes

May 7, 2013

Farmers’ market? Check. Baguette pickup? Check. On-the-go diaper bag? Check. This season it’s easy to find stylish canvas tote bags fully capable of doing double (or triple) duty. Here is a roundup of ten of our favorites:

Above: Made in Japan, a Large Delivery Tote in Black Linen by Tembea is £165 from OEN.

Above: Handmade by a husband and wife team in the Saitama region of Japan, a Southern Field Tote Bag is made of waved canvas with a leather base and leather straps;  $250 from Kaufmann Mercantile.

Above: Available in two sizes and three colors, a Hack Lederware Tote is made from a heavy duty cotton-linen blend. Cologne-based designer Christoph Hack makes them in a small workshop, where he finishes the bags with leather adjustable handles and deerskin. Prices range from $145 to $155 at Canoe.

Above: Made from natural golden jute fiber harvested in Bangladesh, a Jute Garden Tote has plenty of side pockets to hold tools (or your iPhone); it is $78 from Terrain.

Above: Above: The Reverse tote is available in two sizes from Art In The Age Of Mechanical Reproduction ($170 for the smaller, $265 for the larger). The design was conceived so that not an inch of its high-grade canvas went to waste.

For more, see High/Low Tote.

 Above: L.L. Bean, the venerable Maine-based purveyor of practicality, lets you build your own custom boat and tote bag. The above medium Custom Boat and Tote Bag in natural is $43.95.

Above: A Striped Tote Bag, made in India and available in natural with either blue or red stripes,  is $34 from West Elm.

Above: With a zipped inner pocket and adjustable straps, a Canvas Market Bag is 94€ from Manufactum.


Above: A Monserat de Lucca Instructional Tote Bag with two pockets and a magnetic snap closure is $178 from Anthropologie.


Above: The white canvas “Steele” Tote Bag is available in five sizes, at prices ranging from $34.75 to  $45.60 from Steele Canvas.
