The canvas tote bag is woven into the fabric of Amsterdam life. It has become a staple accessory among women who ride bikes. For good reason too, these simple and functional bags have many practical advantages
Canvas is light weight, yet also durable and strong. The bags are easy to clean and if cared for properly, can last many years. The sling-over-shoulder convenience provides plenty of versatility. They can be used to carry practically anything and is only limited by your own imagination. When not in use, they can easily be folded and tucked away.
Totes are also an inexpensive accessory. Many shops and boutiques offer them as gifts for in-store purchases. Online shops like Etsy and Society6 provide infinite choices of stylish designs. If you’re handy, you can learn to make your own.
Generations have used tote bags and there is little doubt this trend will continue. Even some men are learning from their female counterparts and opting for this simple convenience. While it’s often said that a girl can never have too many bags, the mighty canvas tote makes a strong case that you need only one.
