The Shirt Off My Back Tote | Upcycled Tote
This tote rescues textiles from landfill one worn shirt at a time. Made from clean shirts donated from friends and family, the shirt off my back tote was initially designed for a local shop as a low-cost solution to a tote. People were intrigued! They liked the shape, the quirkiness, the lightweight texture, the fact that it rolls up into nothing when not in use. And they loved the fact that it helped reduce textile waste in our landfills.Note: These shirts come in all patterns and colours, so choosing a particular pattern or colour is not possible. However, at checkout, if you'd like to write me a note about your preferences, I'll do my best to accommodate! (i.e. patterned, solid, bright, dark, light colour).
