Quick Overview

Ragged Mountain's Waxed Cotton Tote uses stout canvas and strong nylon webbing to give you a real workhorse of a carry-all. It's inherently weatherproof due to the traditional use of cotton canvas permeated with light wax. It will stand up on its own for packing on account of the burly construction, and the reinforced base eliminates the chance of a blowout at the farmer's market. There's an external slot pocket for quick access to smaller items, and a secure inside mesh pocket with a metal zipper for the more important ones. The Waxed Cotton Tote measures 6½" x 13" at the base, and it stands 13" tall. Mark our words: this tote will accompany you everywhere.

Details

Our Waxed Cotton Tote Bag is based on the traditional design used for lugging coal to the furnace, or fetching ice from the icehouse. Since both those jobs required a sturdy, stand-open bag that was comfortable with handling heavy loads, we built ours along those same lines. These totes exploit the functional advantages and great look of waxed cotton in an updated version of a classic piece. Durable cotton canvas has been permeated with a waterproofing wax to beef up its resistance to weather and abrasion, harkening back to technology employed by British mariners in the 1850s. Aside from its overall ruggedness, waxed canvas takes on a nice patina with age and use, very much like your favorite leather items. It is this characteristic of the material that gives our totes their distinctive traditional style and feel.
The beefy cotton canvas used for the main bag is doubled on the bottom for extra security, and to help the tote hold its shape. Tough nylon webbing handles reinforce the tote by running underneath as well, and they boast a breaking strength that is off the chart. You can fill this tote with more cargo than you could ever lift, so its capacity is somewhat self-limiting in that regard.
Have a few smaller items that you don't want to get lost in the pile of groceries or collection of tools stowed within? Then just choose either the slip pocket on the front (for your sunglasses, or your checkbook, or your tape measure), or the zippered mesh pocket hanging inside, where you can secure your phone and your keys.
There's no sense in describing the uses for our Waxed Cotton Tote, as they are too many. Suffice it to say that one person's luggage is another person's shopping bag, or beach tote, or tool box. For all we know, you're still burning coal in your furnace; any way you look at it, we have you covered.
