The Art of the Tote

Wm. J. Mills Totes

with one comment

When I was a kid I had a small green and white Wm. J. Mills tote, which I loved the way kids love things that are miniature versions of things their parents have. (In our household growing up there were lots of extra-large canvas totes that we called “sailbags;” we mostly used them for laundry.) I hasn’t thought about that little green and white tote in ages, until I stumbled across this:

The label instantly reminded me of that old tote, and a web search showed that Mills is still in business, making wonderful candy-colored canvas bags n a variety of sizes.

They still make little ones as well, though neither of these looks just like the kind I had:

You can buy them online at the Wm. J. Mills shop.

  1. Great read. The bags are truly classics. They never wear out. After daily use they can have a long life as ….yes, laundry bags.
