Organic Cotton Tote Bag

Buy The Change

This organic cotton tote bag is a work of art! The threads are dyed with all natural, plant-based dyes, which are only available one month of each year. Then the fabric is woven by hand on a back-strap loom and the bag is sewn using a foot-powered sewing machine. This versatile tote is perfect for carrying a variety of items; from diapers to groceries to beach towels!
