To tote means to carry. At the beginning of the 20th century, UK postmen wore these satchels over the shoulder. Fabric was much lighter than leather. In the middle of the century, the tote bag was then used by newspaper criers in Europe and America. After WWII women used it to transport their shopping. Always for functional reasons. Since year 2000, this canvas bag has established itself as a fashion accessory. Looking to buy an original Tote Bag at a fair price? In our shop, we have thousands of them in all colours.
