Winter is here and there are two things we know for sure (1) you’re busy and (2) you need to stay organized. So, of course, it’s time for you to get a new tote! We’ve rounded up some of our favorite totes with the added bonus that, just like us, are on a mission to give back and make an impact on the world. Here are some of our new fall favorites. Adds to Christmas list in 3, 2, 1…
Raven + Lily - Kerem Tote in Sienna
Pic by Raven + Lily
Raven + Lily’s totes (well, all of their beautiful products) are woman made with sustainable materials. This is a great everyday bag made of veg-tanned leather and cut by hand by their partners in Ethiopia. This brand gives back as much as they can and we love everything they make!

Every product Krochet Kids is hand-signed by the person who made it. Krochet Kids encourages their customers to visit the profile of the woman who made your product so you can learn her story and write a note of thanks and encouragement to let her know you are rooting her on. No, we’re not crying, it’s just a little dust in our eyes.
We really love the ‘Devin' bag they make. It carries all of your essentials and is individually made in Peru by women. What’s not to love?
Newton Supply Co. - The Field Bag

Newton Supply Co.’s partner, Open Arms, empowers local refugee women through living wage employment, and every purchase helps these women on the path to self-sufficiency. We also love that the bags are made in our home state of Texas - the canvas is hand-waxed in Houston with local triple-filtered beeswax, and the fabric for their state print bags is printed in San Antonio.
You can carry their Field Bag as a tote or as a crossbody, plus it is fully lined in waterproof Cordura nylon (for when you have the occasional Purpose Purple Tea spill) and has tons of pockets.
