Eco Totes Plant Dyed


You can never have too many calico tote bags! Perfect for plastic-free shopping or lugging gear to yet another activity.

Our eco-totes are naturally hand-dyed using plant stuffs, many of them foraged locally, so each have their own individual, unique character and subtle, earthy tones.

Our beautiful magenta toned totes are naturally dyed with cochineal (a beetle).

Measuring 45cm high by 35cm wide, they feature a 10cm gusset so you can stash more stuff, and double 55cm x 2.5cm handles, so easy to carry.

Our mini totes make a sweet bag for littler people - measuring approximately 22cm wide by 24cm deep with a single shoulder strap measuring 80cm long and a hidden inside pocket for tiny treasures.

Ethically sourced, fair trade 100% quality weight cotton. 

Current colours available - moss grey and blue grey.

 Handmade in Castlemaine by Elfin Trail.

Funny thing, we might be a shop but we’re not actually big on consumerism. We have a major aversion to today’s mass produced, disposable culture of built-in obsolescence and advertising convincing us to buy more stuff we don’t need. Instead, we value timeless quality, investing in heirloom pieces to last a lifetime, each item unique and handmade by a real person. We want you to love your purchase as much as us, so if for some reason it’s not exactly what you want, return it within 14 days and we’ll provide a full store credit on the purchase price (not including postage).
