By Jennifer Wills


Our collection of vegan tote bags continues to expand, with new carry options for work, study, travel + more. 

Maybe you need to carry a laptop, charger + notebooks to work, your gym gear + lunch on your commute, or perhaps you're looking for a stylish baby bag that keeps everything you need organised. You want a tote bag that looks good, is made from responsible materials + is functional - the bottom line is it has to hold what you need + make your day easier.

So what tote is right for you?

Explore our range of totes to discover your perfect fit, for whatever adventures await you.

Daytripper Tote

Our biggest bag, designed for a wide range of needs, the Daytripper can be a work bag, uni bag, baby bag, carry on or weekender / overnight bag. We find it's a hugely popular 'new mum' gift, and bought just as frequently for bigger work needs like large laptop and accessories, books, lunch + more. Multiple compartments inside + out means there's a place for everything, even your drink bottle, and it comes with a crossbody strap as well as adjustable shoulder straps to ensure versatility + a comfortable fit.

The secure top zip closure makes the Daytripper a popular carry-on bag for travel + it has the clever bonus of a slider pocket on the back to slip it over your suitcase handle, keeping things effortless during transit. Plus, it's well within most airline guidelines for carry on luggage size (always check to be sure)

Archive Tote

Our original classic work tote, the Archive is sized for up to a 15 inch laptop - with a padded pocket to accomodate a 13 inch device - and is the ultimate 'desk to drinks' stylish tote.

Two sets of handles let you mix it up, so you can wear on the shoulder by the longer straps or carry by hand with the recycled webbing handles. Plus the webbing handles can be tucked inside for a sleek, more corporate look. This one is just for shoulder or hand carry, it does not have the option to add a crossbody strap.


Universo Tote


Another option if you need to carry a 15 inch laptop, the Universo can be worn on the shoulder, carried by hand - or you have the option to add a crossbody strap so versatility points are high.

Pockets on the front give quick access to essentials like glasses, earbuds or keys, while slider pockets inside are a good option for wallet + phone. The Universo is large enough to carry bulkier items like drink bottle and umbrella, so it's a practical receptacle for a day at work or uni, and the topline zip closure provides security - especially helpful for the commute.

The Universo's portrait orientation gives it an elegant look, keeping things sleek + streamlined so it's not out of place at after work adventures.


Nomad Tote

Perhaps you covet a classic landscape tote shape like the Archive but prefer the security of a top zip closure - the Nomad Tote has you covered. It's large enough for a 16 inch laptop and though the roomy interior is largely 'open plan' without a central divider, there's two separate internal pockets plus a zipped compartment for your phone, glasses, wallet or keys so you won't have to rummage around to find your essentials.

The oversized silhouette brings a distinctly fashion mood to this very practical tote, and gives you ample space for lunch box, large drink bottle, charger + lots more.

While there's not the option to attach a crossbody strap to the Nomad, the longer strap drop of 30cm means it fits easily on your shoulder even over bulky coats or you can carry on your arm.

Journey Totepack

Technically it's a backpack, but the Journey's twin top handles bring the versatility of carrying like a tote or briefcase, so it's a great tote choice when you want the option to mix it up. The Journey is a large bag with a generous capacity for all your work + study needs.

Clever construction details make all the difference, like a padded pocket to keep your 15 inch laptop close + secure, and make wearing it comfortable; a side zip for quick access to the interior so you don't have to open up the whole bag to grab what you need; and tabs along the topline with hidden magnets so you can open the bag wider with ease.

The Journey is crafted from AppleSkin™ material, an innovative, biobased fabric made using apple waste from juice production, to create a textile with a lush handfeel as well as durability. Part of our limited edition collaboration collection with The Brave GentleMan, the Journey is a refined, gender neutral tote option.


Navigator Business Bag

The Navigator business bag has a traditional landscape orientation making it a briefcase-style tote, plus it has the added versatility of a crossbody strap included.

The Navigator has space for a 15 inch laptop plus charger + work or study essentials, and the AppleSkin™ material + touches of subtle khaki make it a polished commute companion. Smart inclusions like hidden magnetic tabs + pocket closures and a slider pocket on the back to fit over a suitcase handle help your day stay fuss free.


Library Tote 

The Library is designed as a petite version of our classic east-west tote, the Archive. It's suited to lighter carrying needs - it's a great option to carry tablet / notebook / drink bottle + personal items to work or study - and is not a dedicated laptop bag. It will accomodate some 13 inch laptops in the main compartment, depending on their dimensions, however it's designed to hold just a tablet or kindle in its central padded pocket. Versatility is enhanced with the option to add a crossbody strap to the Library for hands free wear.

Given the two bags are the same silhouette + style, we do find that many people are torn between the Archive + Library totes. Our advice: there's a significant 10cm difference in width + 6cm difference in height between the two, so consider what tech device you carry as well as your frame size to decide whether your needs are best met by a small or medium option.


Destination Tote

With all the same features as the larger Universo, the Destination Tote is simply sized slightly down to fit a 13 inch laptop. You can add a crossbody strap for when you want to go hands free, or use one of the two sets of handles for shoulder or hand carry.

Pockets front, back + inside of the Destination ensure you can find just what you need, when you need it - so you don't have to rummage through your bag to find glasses, keys, cards etc. The padded laptop compartment keeps your 13 inch device secure while leaving enough room for all your other necessities. And like the Universo, the portrait - or north-south - orientation of the Destination brings a fashion mood to a very practical bag. 


Canvas Totes

Our cotton canvas totes are the great all rounders: roll them up to pop in a suitcase, throw them in the car for market + grocery trips, and toss them in the washing machine as needed.

Ideal as beach bags + to generally make everyday activities a touch more stylish, they are a great gift idea on their own or filled with some vegan treats.

Made from robust cotton in a range of tones, the Xtra Overflow includes a zipped pocket for important items like wallet or keys, while the Traveller Tote is unstructured inside + has a drawstring closure to keep it all secure.

There's truly totes for all in the Sans Beast collection. Check out our What's in My Bag videos on YouTube + IG to get the inside story on what fits inside each one + find your perfect fit.
