Is anyone else having trouble believing we’ve already welcomed in a brand-new year? Around here it feels as though we teleported from Halloween of 2021 straight into 2022…the past few months have been a blur!
But, ready or not, 2022 is here, and with it comes all the hope…and promise…and trend watching that herald in a new year. To that end, we thought we’d share with you a few reasons why you’ll want to start carrying your canvas tote to more places than the local market.
Canvas totes have been having a moment in recent years, and their popularity shows no signs of slowing down. In fact, we are seeing everyone—from celebrities to executives—sporting canvas totes everywhere—from the office to evening dinner dates—which suggests, if you don’t have a favorite canvas tote, obtaining one should be at the top of your to-do list. Here are 3 reasons why
- Carrying Canvas Shows You Care About the Environment
When you choose to carry a canvas bag made of cotton or linen, you’re doing a great favor to the environment. Unlike bags made of plastic or other synthetic fabrics, canvas totes can easily be washed (and repaired should they receive a snag or tear).
Another perk—once they have lived a full life of service to the environment canvas totes are biodegradable, unlike plastic and synthetic bags that can take centuries to decompose.
- They are Wonderfully Versatile
One of the best features of canvas totes is their versatility. Canvas totes are available in a variety of colors and styles, ensuring you’ll have a bag available to compliment any outfit you pull together. Canvas totes with grommet hardware and rope handles create a nautical vibe and are perfect for carrying while on summer holiday or to the local beach lake or pool. Other canvas totes are accented with rich leather handles and exterior pockets, lending a sense of fashion-forward, high-end luxury to the bag. No matter what aesthetic you long to embrace, you can rest assured the perfect tote is available to pull your look together.
And let’s not forget about the fabulous real estate that is the exterior of a canvas bag. Small business owners around the globe have realized the marketing boost that comes with a well-branded tote. Come up with the right design, and you just may develop a cult following for your business.
- They are Ridiculously Roomy
Canvas totes are available in a variety of sizes. Use smaller totes in place of your traditional shoulder bag—many modern-day totes include interior pockets to help you keep track of small items.
Larger totes serve as the perfect gym or yoga bag, holding extra equipment, accessories, towels, and a change of clothes. They also make wonderful bags to take to the beach or poolside and can easily hold towels, snacks, and toys if you have children in tow. And let’s not forgot about those of us who prefer to carry a large version for our everyday tote in order to keep our wallet, car keys, laptop, phone, and all the rest of life’s necessities in one bag. Go big or go home!
Consider diversifying your tote bag collection and sporting your canvas tote with pride. We have a feeling this unassuming bag will quickly (and possibly permanently) replace your trusty hand or shoulder bag. Let’s carry something new into 2022!
