When I set about launching this line I was faced with the inevitable question of "why another tote?" We all have the ubiquitous shopper from our favorite nonprofit or school. But I found that I would use them for a bit to show my support and they soon found their way to the closet or "clutter corner" as my guy likes to call it. What would make me want to carry a tote? Something colorful or maybe neutral when in the mood. And what about metallic? That jazzes things up a bit now doesn't it?
I like things to match but not in that Laura Ashley drape and lampshade matching kind of way. I like to find shapes that work together but don't necessarily make sense. I like it when someone has a peep of a color in a sock or scarf that ties an outfit together.
And most of all I like that no new cotton was used to make it!
