March 3, 2022

Regardless of where you are in the world, the arrival of March seems synonymous with spring and the anticipated arrival of sunny weather. This in turn, means more trips to the beach or days spent lounging poolside.

Wherever you’re headed this spring, you’ll want to have a bag on hand that celebrates the season while providing practical transportation support for all the things you’ll need to take with you.

That’s why we are featuring our Canvas Boater Bag this month. This classically designed tote has plenty of room and high-end features, and it’s destined to become your go-to summer bag.

Let’s take a look at just a few of the reasons why we love it.

  1. The Classic Styling

The look of this bag is iconic and instantly recognisable. The clean look of plain canvas offset by an eye-catching, contrasting color has been an integral part of boater bags, originally created in the 1940’s to haul ice, for decades. Thoughtful touches like the interior, zippered pocket let you keep smaller things organised while larger items take up the expansive interior of the bag.

  1. The Rugged Durability

Don’t let its high-fashion look fool you—this bag is a workhorse, and one that you will enjoy using for years to come.

Heavyweight cotton canvas can take whatever you throw at it. Go ahead…load it up groceries. This bag can handle the heftiest items. And the gusseted base offers stability to the bag. When it comes time to lift, you’ll love the security of reinforced handles. Trust us when we tell you…the items you’re carrying won’t go anywhere.

  1. The Versatility

We aren’t kidding when we tell you this is destined to become your go-to bag. The high-end design makes it perfect for everyday errands. The durability makes it an excellent choice for market runs. And the voluminous interior ensures you’ll be using this tote for everything this summer—from a carry-on bag to a gym tote to an overnight carryall.

  1. The Eco-Friendliness

When it comes to the environment, not all bags are created equal. Many are crafted from plastics that refuse to break down over time, filling our landfills and oceans and endangering wildlife. We’re proud to say this bag is created using 100% cotton canvas, which will naturally break down in the environment once your bag has served you for many years. You may also opt to donate your used bag to fabric shops that use donated fabric for repurposing. Another option is to find out if there is a textile recycling service in your area and take your worn-out canvas bags there.

There are bags you buy knowing they will likely be in style for only a single season. And then there are the classics, whose instantly identifiable silhouette remains in fashion regardless of the decade. The Canvas Boater Bag is most certainly the latter. If you are looking for a bag that will fit seamlessly into your summer plans and transition effortlessly into the fall, you won’t do better than this timeless tote.
