There are many reasons to buy a tote bag, but really it doesn't matter if it's one, three or five.
Tote bags are versatile and durable.
If you search for “tote bag fashion” or “tote bag coordination” on SNS such as Instagram or Pinterest, you should be able to find many wonderful ways to wear tote bags.
So why should we recommend a tote bag here? Here are 10 reasons why.
1. Totes are versatile
Men and women of all ages can use tote bags for work, school, gym, shopping, picnics, travel bags and beach bags.
It is strong enough to carry even heavy loads.
Even with large luggage, it's okay if it sticks out a little.
To put it bluntly, you don't need any other bag as long as you have this bag.
2. Canvas totes are eco-friendly
Canvas is a thick and durable fabric made by plain weaving cotton with thick twine , and of course it is a natural material.
It has just the right amount of breathability to keep the contents inside from getting stuffy, is resistant to water, and is durable, making it a very suitable material for bags.
So it's more than just a perfect substitute for plastic bags.
Having a variety of tote bags is not only convenient, but it also leads to a significant reduction in environmental impact by continuing to use them for a long time.
3. Totes are as fashionable as they are convenient
From the "Ice Carrier" released by LLBean in 1944, which is said to be the origin of the tote bag, it has now transformed into a gorgeous fashion item.
The tote bag has gained fashionability and design in addition to practicality.
Whether it's casual style during the day, commuting style, lunchtime or dinnertime, the tote bag will be your perfect companion.
4. Tote bags come in a wide variety of colors
The design and color combinations are endless.
With the tote bag from Koubou HOSONO , you can personalize the canvas color of the bag with an art feeling.
We believe that you can show your own various expressions by having bags of various colors and shapes in your hand.
5. Tote bags have excellent storage capacity
Compact bags such as sacoches and waist pouches are very light and easy to move around when going out.
But what if you get a plastic bottle you didn't finish drinking, a mug you bought on impulse, a product catalog you were interested in, a magazine you wanted to read, or a surprise gift that you took home with you?
With a tote bag, you can carry as many items as you need for the day.
6. The tote bag doubles as a computer bag
Laptop bags are durable, padded, and conveniently designed to carry your computer and essential accessories together.
However, computer bags in the world are all dark and boring.
A stylish tote bag will go well with your outfit.
It is easy to put in and take out a computer, and it is very easy to handle even in a small space in a cafe.
However, the tote bag is not a computer bag, so it should be well protected inside the bag to protect it from any shocks.
7. Tote bags are great gifts
If you like you, your mother, father, grandma, grandpa, siblings, best friends, people who took care of you, and those who care about you will surely like it.
The totes are reasonably priced and come in a variety of styles.
Thinking about the person who will use it, and choosing the shape, size, and color combination that they like will be a very enjoyable time for you.
A personalized gift doubles the joy of the recipient.
With Kobo HOSONO's tote bag , you can choose your favorite color combination and color order.
However, it may take 1-2 months to complete, so plan early!
8. Tote bags are also useful for parenting
Moms and dads around the world love totes as carryalls for their little ones.
Trying to cram diapers, clothes, bottles, toys, wipes, towels and treats into a small bag can be frustrating.
Even if you think you've managed to keep everything clean, what if your child starts crying on the bus?
While holding the stroller with one hand, opening the small opening of the bag and taking out the pacifier hidden under the luggage is a difficult task.
If you open a tote bag, you can find out what is inside at a glance.
With a large tote bag that can replace a mother's bag, moms and dads can easily pack up and go out.
9. Totes are easy to carry
With a tote bag, you don't need to cross the shoulder belt or wrap your arms around your shoulders.
Anyone can easily start walking as soon as they pick it up by the handle.
It doesn't matter whether you hold it or not.
You can carry it over your shoulder or hang it from the handlebar of your bike.
Also, the wide opening makes it easy to remove and fill everything.
10. Carbon offset is possible
I'm sorry, but this is not limited to purchasing tote bags, but for your orders at Kobo HOSONO, you may be able to support carbon offset by simply changing the payment method to Shop Pay. I don't know.
What is carbon offset?
Regarding the emission of greenhouse gases such as CO2 that cannot be avoided in corporate economic activities and in our daily lives, we will first make efforts to reduce emissions as much as possible. It is a mechanism to make up for it by doing activities to reduce or absorb it in , or by investing.
What is Shop Pay?
Our online shop uses an online service called Shopify, and Shop Pay is a payment service provided by Shopify.
If you select Shop Pay at the time of payment and register your email address and mobile phone number, just enter the 6-digit shop pay code (SMS authentication) that will be sent to your email address and mobile phone number when you make your next purchase. You can easily pay without re-entering your credit or credit card information.
Through the Carbon Offset Project, Shopify supports activities such as forest protection, regeneration, and conservation to achieve carbon offsets.
Below is quoted from the Shopify blog , Shopify Sustainability Fund page
Shopify automatically offsets 100% of the carbon generated during shipping for all orders purchased using Shop Pay.
The goal is to automatically and easily minimize the carbon footprint of e-commerce orders. We want to standardize this process and make carbon offsetting an integral part of the online shopping experience.
What to watch out for with carbon offsetting
When working on carbon offsets, I think it is important for individuals to make efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as much as possible.
Offsetting does not in any way allow you, your country, or your organization's emissions.
Reduce emissions as much as possible. Make up for emissions on top of that.
I think we should not forget this way of thinking.
Carbon offsetting is not a direct and perfect solution, but it is a necessary tool until better technologies are developed to reduce emissions.
Don't you think it's worth choosing if changing your payment method not only makes it more convenient, but also saves money and supports carbon offsetting?
I would appreciate it if you could refer to it as one of the options.
