Our Favorite Embroidered Tote Bags for Summer Swag Bags

Tote bags can be classy, depending on what you wear with them and the bag’s design. However, nothing beats a custom embroidered tote bag if you want an accessory that catches the eyes of passersby.

Besides being aesthetically pleasing, embroidered totes are highly functional. You can use them for work, running chores, or get a stylish one to pair with chic clothing. Also, since tote bags are so spacious, they can carry more items than most bags.

Why Tote Bags?

Tote bags have a special place in our hearts because they are highly versatile. You can take them grocery shopping to carry your items and say goodbye to the single-use plastic bags killing our planet. Alternatively, use a tote bag as your everyday handbag. You can easily carry it thanks to long handles that you can comfortably hold in your hand or sling over your shoulder or elbow.

Lastly, tote bags come in various designs and colors, simplifying finding one that matches your style. Even better, you can easily customize a tote bag by embroidering your preferred design on its front.

Are Tote Bags Eco-Friendly?

You can get tote bags made from eco-friendly materials like hemp or organic cotton. Besides featuring organic materials, tote bags are eco-friendly because they can replace single-use plastic bags for shopping. Instead of relying on harmful plastic bags, you can take the same tote bag grocery shopping for years. It’s also sturdier than paper bags.
