 A tote bag is one of the most practical accessories a woman can carry with her during the day.

Why Is It Called A Tote Bag?

It's called a "tote" after the French word for carry, "ton". It was originally a heavy basket or sack used by tradesmen and farmers to carry their goods from one place to another. They were so popular at the turn of the century that they became an American icon by 1900. 

Since the word "tote" is defined as to carry and these handbags typically feature two long leather handles for carrying them over your shoulder; some also have crossbody straps which make it possible to wear them like a backpack.


The roomy interior can fit an entire day's worth of necessities like tablets and laptops along with food and personal hygiene items while the exterior pockets keep your other reusable plastic bags organized. Like most other designs, these totes open up into an equally spacious interior but their top zip closure keeps everything secure when you're on the go!

It comes in different shapes, sizes and materials, but all Tote bags have one simple principle, carry well all your belongings comfortably.
