A new tote bag has joined the Grounds collection this week - please welcome the O'Coffee tote! Like all of our other burlap bags, this bag is cut and sewn from repurposed coffee bean sack burlap and handmade into an eclectic, medium sized tote bag. This is the first and only bag in our collection featuring this burlap print. Both sides of the tote bag features printed burlap and both sides are completely unique! The beauty is certainly with the burlap with this bag.
To offset the detailed industrial text and images on the exterior of the bag, I chose an ocean-blue fabric to line the bottom of the bag and the interior of the bag. This soft fabric frames the burlap and provides structure and shape. The O'Coffee is completely simple on the inside with no interior pockets - that's right! This bag may appear medium, but the interior is so spacious that it could fit anything from a laptop to clothing for a day trip and more. With plenty of storage, who needs pockets? Plus, you can always organize your items using one of our zipper pouches and remove the pouch when you only need to carry a few items on the go!
I lined the top of this tote bag with the same blue lining fabric, and I think it is a beautiful finishing touch along with the ivory top-stitching that provides just enough detail without being overly busy. The straps are an ivory woven belting similar to what is used in many of the other bag designs. They are tried and true, so why change 'em!
I love that the focus of this bag is purely the burlap print. No metal, no zippers, no pockets or grommets. Just the burlap and the blue. I love how it turned out, and I hope you do too! It is now available in our Etsy shop for purchase.
Have a great weekend!
