There is nothing better than a sturdy tote that boasts a colorful,  cool design…add a charity donation into that mix and you have the ultimate casual wear tote bag…most specifically Ann Veronica totes – made in New England (you know I have a soft spot for NE!)

These delightful totes are inspired by the people of Maine –  Ann Veronica designed three special bags to embrace their sense of community, optimism and environmental stewardship. A portion of the proceeds from sales is dedicated to the betterment of life in Maine and beyond. No two totes are alike; all are made of 100% cotton canvas, made in the USA and eco-friendly.

The Inspiration Hope Tote (my personal favorite) was made to honor the town of Hope, ME, population 1,310, – a town rich with a sense of family and community, where people still come together to celebrate nature’s renewal each spring with a “perennial swap.” In the spirit of HOPE, 10% of sales will support research for children facing catastrophic illness through. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital  – that is reason enough to purchase one of these beautifully crafted bags!

All of the Inspiration Totes are made from the heart from select remnants of Ann’s most popular patterns and colors – she certainly does her part to be green . Each tote is pieced together carefully and then hand-sewn to allow for an authentic frayed look that will develop over time and use. As if there weren’t enough personal touches added to these totes – your bag also comes signed by the seamstresses who made it!
