Why You Can Never Have Too Many Totes
“Tote” means “to carry” and true to its name, when thinking of a tote bag, it’s not hard to picture a spacious, unfailing carryall. Even on the days you refuse to step out of the house without seemingly bringing half of your entire possessions with you, there’s always space for more somehow.
Hell, you could even tote your prized furkid around in one. Here’re five reasons why you can never have too many totes:
1 – It can be used for anything
And I mean, anything. It’s perfect for both work and school, for getting the groceries, or going to the beach. It’s a fuss-free companion for your next gym class, shopping spree or holiday trip. The list goes on.
Technically any bag can carry anything, but not all can do it well. Check out Da Monkey Be Fine for their sweet and affordable collection – the perfect throw-it-on tote that’s great to look at whilst minimal enough you don’t think twice about using it to the fullest.
2 – There’s lots of room
You know, to bring out a portable charger for your phone, a portable charger for your camera, and a portable charger for your portable chargers. What can we say, it’s tough living in the 21st century.
When it comes to capacity, the Twin Tote series from All & Sundry won our hearts with its double compartment design. Organisation AND space. Yay to more room!
3 – Re-usable
It’s a widely known fact that plastic bags are non-biodegradable and awfully detrimental to the environment (see here, here and here). Tote bags, on the other hand, can do everything a plastic bag does – and more: It’s re-usable, it’s beautiful, and it’s durable.
Now if you compare plastic bags and totes side-by-side, a tote does take more resources to make. So, totes need to be reused for it to offset that environmental impact. We don’t think that’s too difficult, especially when your tote looks great and is well-built. It’s even greener when your tote is made with recycled materials!
We love how Madmatter maintains environmental responsibility by turning unwanted shirts into unique, limited-edition totes. They’re gorgeous and incredibly durable too, which basically means you’re going to get a lot of mileage out of them, and won’t go out of style during your 100th trip to the grocery.
4 – It’s a fashion statement
Nobody said you can’t turn that path from your house to the train station into your very own runway. Where there’s people, there’s always an audience. A moment not used to flaunt your impeccable taste in fashion is a moment wasted, no?
This is where Artwork by Pom comes in with its clean and contemporary pieces.

5 – Win at social media
It’s all about the details – the right tote can make even a T-shirt and shorts ensemble look good on the ‘gram. Time to gather the entire gang and get matching totes because #squadgoals.
