Created for practical simplicity, our embroidered Ginkgo gray cotton tote bag is your perfect companion for everyday use. Whether you are shopping at a market, returning a book to the library or just hanging out with friends this bag is just the right size for your needs.
With an interior pocket to keep your essentials on hand, the Ginkgo tote is constructed with a textural handwoven cotton exterior woven from yarns of two colors: a warp of indigo-dyed cotton and a weft of heavier naturally brown cotton. This beautiful fabric is then paired with a strong canvas lining for durability. When not in use this bag can be folded down to a compact size for easy storage.
The embroidery on both sides of the bag is done with Thai handspun cotton yarns.

Avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight or excessive rubbing against white fabric. We recommend hand-washing separately in lukewarm water with mild detergent which contains no whitening or bleaching agents. If using a washing machine please select gentle wash function with cold water. Please air-dry in a shaded area. Iron on low temperature.
Although we wash each textile multiple times before shipping to remove excess dye particles there is still a possibility of colour transference occurring (during harsh rubbing or other close/vigorous interactions).
During the first few washes some brown or yellow pigment may appear in the water. This is normal and is a chemical compound characteristic of our indigo dye. Periodically removing this excess pigment will leave colours more vivid than before.
Synthetically dyed textiles are beautiful immediately after dyeing, while textiles dyed with indigo become more beautiful over time, developing their own characteristic shades with each day of use. Natural dyes are living colours and need to be cared for accordingly for best results. Please enjoy the gradual evolution of your naturally dyed textile.
