A Total Look Inside

The Canvas Tote is straightforwardly our favorite. It has the easy, weekend tote bag look, with the functionality of a weekday work bag. Six deep pockets will get you super organized. No longer will your headphones get all tangled with your sneakers and power cord. Here's a deep dive into the tote bags of some Loomstaters (where few others have gone before).
