An ideal Fleamarket tote used for a trip to the beach or out shopping - these must have sturdy yet chic totes are made of eco-friendly materials. Not only are they made locally in the big city of New York but they are sewn the old fashioned way - by hand. (I know, shocking!)
No toxic paints and no glues are used on these organic cotton/hemp canvas bags. They use a water-based ink and a vegetable-tanned leather -- can you get any more GREEN?
We have been obsessed with them ever since we saw the designers, Shira Entis and Alex Bell today in Georgetown. And they are MUST have on everyone's list. The best part - the are a season to season bag for our GREEN loving fashionistas and come in four shades!
