Our Joy tote is made with lush antique linen toweling fabric, screen printed in our workshop in eco-friendly inks. Edge stripes are woven into fabric.
After long hunting, we've been fortunate to source two 110-year-old bolts of unused, American-made linen toweling fabric, perfect for printing and wonderful as totes. This linen has a beautiful hand, softens with use, and is naturally dirt resistant.
Our patterns are designed using hand-cut paper specifically for this fabric and these totes. Pattern placement and linings vary for these special totes.
Each Joy tote is lined with a vintage, previously unused fabric. Using these vintage fabrics, given to us by friends, is a pleasure, creating function for materials long anticipating purpose.
Two cotton webbing handles for over the shoulder or to carry in the hand.
18 inches tall, approximately 16 inches wide at top. 4 inch wide firm bottom gusset.
Each tote is labeled with its unique Blue Skies Workroom production number.
If you find that you wish to clean your tote, we recommend dry cleaning to maintain its shape and minimize shrinkage.
