Please join the wait list for this variant.
Simple as it is versatile, this unique tote bag is crafted from recycled antique hemp and linen textiles sourced from Central and Eastern Europe and has a subtle grey tone that’s distinctive to hemp. Historically, families in this region harvested their own hemp and flax, spun these fibers into thread, then wove the thread into fabrics that were hand-sewn into clothes and other household items.
In its previous life, this tote may have been a grain sack, sheet, tablecloth, or even a wagon cover. Hemp straps are sourced in Romania.
Tote comes with an inside pocket for easy phone, wallet, keys access.
Available in solid and striped.
