Ah, the ubiquitous tote – it appears in almost everyone’s bag collection, sometimes more than one. From lugging home the shopping to stashing away your valuables on the beach, there’s nothing that the trusty tote bag won’t come in use for. Couturiers and charities alike create inspiring tote bag designs suitable for all occasions. Whether you’re on the hunt for your next wardrobe staple or just looking to reduce your plastic bag consumption, we’ve found the most lustworthy tote bags on the high street.
Tote bags are everywhere, so why not opt for one that gives to a good cause? M&S and UNICEF UK have teamed up for this ethically sourced tote bag designed by Barbara Hulanicki. Not only is the bag made using entirely recycled fabric, but £1 of every sale goes towards the work of UNICEF UK’s Children in Danger campaign which aims to keep children sage around the world.
Or for more subdued tastes, this straw shopper is just the thing to carry your essentials. Spacious enough for the supermarket shop yet elegant enough to finish off your evening look, it’s the multitasking bag we’re lusting after!
Ok, so this Orla Kiely style may not be the cheapest option, but we’ve fallen for the beautiful, unique textured leather and roomy design. It’s not foldable like some of the above styles, but chances are you won’t want to fit your food shop in this anyway!
