The Tote Project

The heart of The Tote Project is HOPE. Focused on investing in the lives and futures of survivors of human trafficking, The Tote Project sells tote bags and pouches with encouraging messages embroidered on them to inspire women everywhere to #HoldOnToHope.


  • Featuring: totes, pouches
  • Pricepoint: $15-30
  • The Good Factor: Each piece is handmade by survivors of trafficking. The bags are organic cotton and are sewn in a fair trade factory in India. Inks are water-based and eco-friendly! They go even further by giving 20% of the proceeds back to Two Wings, an organization that reaches out to risk youth and survivors.

I’m in love with these cheerfully simple and delicately whimsical designs! I wish for every woman who’s struggling with something to receive one of these bags or pouches in the hope that it encourages them to be free and pursue their dreams.
