The tote bag- practical and universal

Guest Post- Tote bags are a type of everyday bag that can definitely be deemed ‘hard working’. Hard working in the sense that it is so widely used. As a matter of fact, it’s on the list of fashions that never go out of style.

Your everyday tote bag is a multitasking hand bag, and stands as a symbol that denotes the complexity of the roles, played by women today. Millions of ladies nowadays carry and use a tote bag as they aid the busy woman in her everyday life and needs.

Of the great variety of handbags, offered on the market these days, the tote bag offers a classic and basic design. Their simplicity originates from the fact that they are fashioned after the paper grocery bag. Tote bags are known as “Everything bags” as they are greatly versatile and can fit any lady’s lifestyle. It is definitely ideal for the woman who is constantly on the go – it is perfect both for a casual weekend getaway or for carrying your groceries. Because of its simple structure, the tote bag can be loaded with various items and still won’t look unfashionably stuffed.

Another advantage is that the tote bag is an all season handbag. During the summer, a colorful tote, one that matches the bathing suit, is a perfect accessory. When it gets cold, a great leather tote will be your ideal winter aid for carrying your pumps.
In other words, the tote bag defies time in every way possible. This spring’s totes’ hot trend is canvas. However, the fabrics, used for making tote bags vary greatly, but still, totes’ design is rather informal. A tote bag that is well constructed could be made of leather, canvas, straw, plastic, etc. As for the size, totes are relatively large and their sides expand in order to grant plenty of space for various contents. In fact, the expandable sides are probably the tote’s largest asset. This way you can carry a heap of things and still have room for more. This makes the tote bag perfect for traveling and shopping.

Usually, designers tend to, as something as a rule, include a large pocket on the inside. Occasionally, there are dividers and small insert pockets for credit or business cards. The closure is either a zipper or a snap, but there are also tote bags that have a magnet closure, which is great, as it can be closed quickly, with just one swift movement. Simple and basic canvas tote bags have no closure at all. The handle can be short or one that goes all the way over the shoulder. The latter is a really convenient option, for it frees your hands.

The story of the tote bag dates back to 1944 when the “Boat Bag” started being manufactured. It was sold and designed by “LL Bean”. The first tote bag was made of canvas and it quickly became a favorite of the “boater crowd”. The bag’s simplicity is what made it so popular in the first place and what caught the attention of many designers and eventually the attention of ladies worldwide. In the ’50s, the tote gained popularity and became women’s primary handbag. This has primarily to do with practicality. During the ’60s, a major tote bag manufacturer was “Bonnie Cashin”, distributing their “Cashin Carry” bag. As for the ’90s, “Kate Spade” settled on the market as primary tote bag distributors, starting their line of luggage style totes.

Now, in the 21st century, the tote bag is unarguably the most widely used type of hand bag and there are definitely no prospects of that changing in the upcoming decades.
