BINAKOL TOTE BAG
The Binakol Tote that you are bound to bring everywhere! With plenty of room for your all-day-out essentials, this bag features two sets of straps to throw over your shoulder or hold by hand and a small front pocket for your small goods. Bonus: It's made with almost zero waste, cut seam-to-seam to avoid scraps and made with 97% fabric utilization.
This Binakol fabric is handwoven in the Philippines by master artisans in Abra through our partnership with Anthill Fabric Gallery. The Binakol pattern is a psychedelic geometric design that the elders of the Itneg tribe believed wore away evil spirits with its dizzying effect.
