The humble cloth tote is always in fashion and right now carrying a tote has become, well, a thing. We found these offbeat ones from indie brand Syu Studio. Hand-illustrated or block printed, these are eye-catching Plus easy on the pocket and they help you look smart.

What Makes It Awesome

Totes and canvas bags are having a moment. If you walk along Gariahat, you will find loads of them stocked by street stalls - from canvas grocery bags to IKEA’s big blue bags. We came across a range of handblocked and handpainted totes with quirky Kolkata motifs from indie Bengal brand, Syu Studio.  Their bold geometric block printed totes have a dyed base and screen printed cotton lining with a pocket inside. Check out the houndstooth screen printed canvas bag and the gym bag, hand illustrated in natural Indigo. The range of bags include totes, duffel bags, wallets, slings and satchels. They are handcrafted with block printed canvas and pure leather finishing.

Price range: From INR 1,125 + GST.

What Could Be Better

We loved the prints - especially the illustrated ones. It would be great to see some Kolkata-themed quirky motifs. 


These are all hand illustrated and block-printed. Wash them in cold water with very gentle detergent or use a reetha-based natural laundry soap.
