The tote bag is made of 100% linen, quite thick in texture. It is big enough for shopping, beach or gym, had a little pocket for your phone or purse inside. This more complex construction makes it a handbag rather than being just a reusable bag. Longer handles makes it comfy to hold and carry the bag on a shoulder. The best part of it, that it can be folded and doesn't take much space at all.
