I am always on the look out for a great tote. My criteria is must be different (I don't necessaryily want to be part of the pack), strong for every day and somewhat cool... I love these, although not inexpensive, they have a great look and are eco-minded!
In their own words.............
An important part of the Fleabags venture was to create a bag that was as Green as possible while maintaining high quality and covetable design. Thus much research was put into the types of canvas, leather and parts available in the United States that would fit their eco-friendly standards. Fleabags are wholly sourced in the US and made in New York of certified organic cotton / hemp canvas, vegetable-tanned leather and water-based silkscreen ink. Fleabags use no glues or toxic paints, just good old fashion sewing.
