Life may be looking + feeling different in 2020, but we've all still got things to carry. Be it for work, play, exercise, study or shopping, a roomy receptacle is called for.
We've been building a selection of favourites in our vegan tote bag collection, as we've grown our Sans Beast world. Series 6 brings with it the introduction of The Activist Tote, an oversized classic tote bag, given the SB treatment with bold printwork + colour play. We have felt the need to add a tote bag of this style for some time - we adore designing pieces with internal functionality, however we also knew that something more voluminous + unhindered by multiple 'internals' was required.
We love styling The Activist with a small bag, allowing the big + the small things to be covered in your daily carry. The Reader Satchel, Bandolier, Lobby + Salon bags all look fabulous worn cross body, and allow you to keep your personals close at hand, and your bulkier items in the tote.
The Gadget Tote of course remains a firm favourite, and literally has a pocket for everything, be it your 13" laptop, your opticals/sunnies, wallet, smart card + other essentials needed for a day of work or study.
The Archive Tote needs no introduction, but as we're here for all things cruelty free carrying today, we need to mention this signature tote. Designed for a 13" laptop in a custom built zipped pocket, or a 15" laptop in the main compartment, this bag has become a hero in our collection with its two strap options (shoulder + handheld), multiple pockets + a durable, pebble vegan Eco PU exterior.
For casual days - be they heading to the gym, the market or the beach - the Overflow Tote is there for a lightweight cotton option, trimmed with Sans Beast webbing straps. Designed literally to take care of the overflows in life - the times you need to carry more than you expected.
A tote bag does appear to be most popular for the working or studying population, however we believe in vegan bags that look equally good in the office as they do heading out to dinner or drinks after work. Team your tote with any of the aforementioned cross body bags, or go super light + hands free, by attaching a Slimline Barricade Strap to an Operative Wallet, sling it over your bod + your cards/cash will be always be at hand.
One final note to add in the 'art of the carry' is the baby or nappy bag. We have so many parents in our community who have been requesting this be added to the collection. Two words for you: Series Seven. In the meantime, we have found the Archive Tote has been used for la bebes - although not designed with the young'ns in mind, some savvy parents out there have managed to make The Archive their go-to. We're biased but we also think the new Activist Tote could be just the thing for the parenting chapter.
As always, we suggest treating your Sans Beast with love + care. We've got a handy blog post for all things wear, tear + care, and think it warrants a read.
Now go forth + mix your big with your small, your roomy with your compact, your work with your play.
With love, Studio Sans Beast
