East West Totes come in undyed 18oz cotton canvas as well as a range of custom colors, have copper hardware and are perfectly oversized to use at the market, beach or as a weekender. All East-West Totes convert from handheld to shoulder bag via detachable leather handles, which also means the tote is washable.
Indigo canvas is hand dyed using blue pigment from indigo plants. To achieve a dark blue, the fabric is dyed in layers over time, requiring around 20 submerges into the dye vat. The rich blue will naturally fade over time, revealing the grain of the fabric and creating a traditional “denim” look.

Note re: detachable handles. The leather is meant to fit tightly around the collar buttons. When detaching or re-attaching, we recommend placing the bag on a flat surface. Additionally, you can poke a pencil, etc. through the key holes to loosen the leather before you fit the hole over the collar button.
