To start off, a tote bag is a bag that is typically made of fabric and worn over the shoulder with handles. Tote bags are often used for carrying items such as books, groceries, or personal items.
The most common types of totes include grocery totes, market totes, and beach totes. Different types of tote bags can be found in many different stores and on the internet at places like Amazon. The style, size, and color is up to you which will determine how versatile your bag will be for both work and play.
Here are 5 different types of Tote Bags:
1. Canvas Tote Bags
Canvas totes are the most common type of tote bag. They are easy to find and come in a variety of colors, styles, and sizes. Canvas tote bags are great for both work and play because they can be used as an overnight bag or for carrying items to work.
2. Jute Tote Bags
Jute totes are made of jute which is dried rough fiber from cereal plants like wheat, rye, etc., that resembles hemp however it’s not really hemp (related: How To Make A Hemp Bag ). These types of totes are typically inexpensive and great for summertime because they are natural fibers. Jute totes are best used for light items such as groceries or overnight bags.
3. Canvas & Leather Tote Bags
Canvas and leather tote bags are made of both canvas and leather. This type of tote is typically very versatile as it can be used as a beach bag, work bag, shopping bag, and more.
4. Felt Tote Bags
Felt totes are made of felt; these types of tote bags are perfect for fall and winter since they can be used as a lunch bag on colder days or even snowed in! They also work great as a laptop bag if that’s what you need and depending on the quality, these tote bags should last longer than most other totes out there.
5. Straw Tote Bags
Straw totes are made of materials such as straw, hemp, jute, and typically come in a variety of colors due to the material it is made of. There isn’t really much you can use these types of totes for other than decoration items or planters however they’re great if that’s what you need them for. They should last pretty long but again if the material pills or have worn down after time then I would suggest throwing them away.
The thing is, no matter what type of tote bag you need for your day-to-day life, there will be a perfect option out there. If you’re looking for something that can carry all the essentials with style and room to spare, try an oversize canvas drawstring backpack or traditional leather messenger bag. Need something lightweight? Try one of our many stylish nylon totes or cross-body bags made from faux leather.
