Canvas Tote Bag

These totes are fashioned from canvas material, which is a sturdy, heavy-duty plain-woven fabric that will resist wear and tear. Canvas totes are notoriously long-lasting and can be quite fashionable particularly when made of printed or colored canvas.

Heading to the beach? Then grab a beach tote bag! This nifty variation of the classic tote is usually large and colorful with lots of space to carry your beach essentials. These are also often canvas-based, or may be made of straw, plastic or nylon. Generally, they’re fashioned from materials that will stand up to the beach environment, and still look chic on your arm or sitting on your beach towel.

Though tote bags originally became popular for their functionality and spaciousness, they have since received a deluxe design upgrade. The luxury tote bag is a high-end version of the classic tote that is made from more expensive materials like leather. They’re often designed with elegant metal hardware and are more sophisticated-looking than a regular canvas tote. The luxury tote often has multiple compartments and sections to make this large, plush handbag even more functional for its high-end users.

The mini tote bag is just what it’s name suggests – a miniature version of the classic tote bag. These smaller totes sacrifice some spaciousness to make them more suitable for everyday wear. Though they’re not built to carry as many items as a larger tote, they’re still quite useful, especially when designed with multiple pockets and compartments.
