A tote is a large and often unfastened bag with parallel handles that emerge from the sides of its pouch. It is made of sturdy cloth, sometimes with thick leather at its handles or bottom. They usually market these as reusable shopping bags that can store large items that a regular bag can’t.
The shoulder bag or the everyday bag is the most functional bag of them all. And, every brand has its own variants, which only makes it more difficult to resist buying multiple ones from different brands.
