What Makes It Awesome

Looking for totes that stand out? We are crushing on these colourful ones by Assam-based brand NEST.

The canvas tote is one of those wardrobe essential that are perfect for the summer season. It's great to chuck in everything - work essentials to books, booze, gym kits and beachy stuff, there's really no limits.

We love the ones by NEST by Arpit Agarwal is a brand of notebooks/journals, lifestyle products etc. inspired by the popular symbols, culture and crafts of the picturesque and unexplored paradise of North-Eastern India which includes eight states, each vividly different from the other.

The totes are made in cotton canvas with lining and have a zip closure with a zip pocket inside (the size is 13 × 16 inches). The Great Hornbill Carry Everywhere Tote and the Bihu Dance Carry Everywhere Tote. 

Looking for something to put all your pencils, pens and stationery in? Try the pouches made in cotton canvas with polyester lining and silk printed. They are made for multiple uses such as stationery, cosmetics, knick-knacks, currency etc. We loved the Bhut Jolokia Utility Pouch and the Bihu Dance motif one. 

What Could Be Better

We'd love to have some more pouch designs to pick from - especially looking for something with a brighter background.
