3. Brief History of the Tote Bag

It is believed that this bag was first produced in the United States in 1944 by the store, L.L.Bean, who made it for carrying ice.

Originally made of canvas, over the decades it has been modified and revamped by others. Although some versions of totes are merely carrier bags made of fabric, others have more structure.

Handles in contrasting webbing, fabric, pleather and even leather are now commonplace.
