Italian Leather Studio Bag from Everlane
Everlane believes in making things with exceptional quality at ethical factories with radical transparency; all of which they do very well. The San Francisco-based brand partners with the best factories from around the world and sources the finest materials to make beautiful clothing, shoes, and, of course, reusable tote bags.
One of this ethical brand’s most popular totes is the Italian Leather Studio Bag. Coming in black, light taupe, and cognac colors, these beautiful totes fly off the shelves almost every time they’re back in stock. We’ve highlighted this bag from Everlane as one of the best tote bags because not only is it super chic, but it also features functional details like an adjustable shoulder strap, interior and exterior pocket, and snap closure.

Oversized Double Loop Bag from Cuyana
Cuyana has a straightforward and simple sustainability approach—produce responsibly, use high-quality materials, and you’ll have fewer items ending up in landfills. The San Francisco-based brand encourages you to own fewer and better things, and they follow suit by producing in small batches, working with ethical factories, and using sustainable materials. You won’t find the latest trends every season on Cuyana, but you will find timeless pieces you’ll end up using for years to come without getting bored. And yes, that includes their sustainable tote bags.
Our current favorite sustainable tote from Cuyana is the Oversized Double Loop Bag. All five colors are absolute classics, but we’re drooling a little extra over the dark olive.
