Introducing the Bucket Tote

Nov 02, 2014

We are so excited to introduce you to our new tote. After many months of working on this design, we have finally created something that we believe could easily become your new favorite. The Bucket Tote has a perfect proportion of width and height that compliment each other. The circular bottom creates a clean geometric shape. You will find this bag to be an effortless addition to your daily life.  

The removable shoulder strap is minimal, functional, and gets out of your way when using the short handles. From the moment you pick up the tote you'll notice its balanced design. For example, we used leather just to cover the handles, the part that gets the most use. The outside pocket is divided into three compartments. One is thoughtfully sized for your phone, another for a pen, and the third for whatever you please. The fabric is our heaviest weight, 24 oz cotton canvas in natural and black. While stiff initially, the canvas will quickly break-in and become softer with use. 

For this journal post, we spent some time shooting at June Kim and Michelle Cho's perfectly lit apartment in Oakland, California. Michelle Cho is a photographer and filmmaker, constantly noticing the beautiful and subtle moments in light and movement. You can find her work on her website, here. June Kim is also a photographer and overall visual thinker who always seems to be on the road or traveling abroad. View some of her work on her website, here. As we photographed on this Sunday afternoon, we wanted to embrace the deep contrast the sunlight was providing indoors. We played with the idea of dark and light to compliment the natural and black canvas, carry-all totes.
