I spent this summer in Europe... and one thing that I saw, no matter what country, city, or province I was in.. where TOTE BAGS! (Luckily, I had one too.) But being honest, while in America, I didn't think about my Tote bag that I got at some random conference from some random stand. Instead, I just used it as a bag to carry my gym clothes around. Although, while packing for Europe (something that always has been a struggle for me), I couldn't fit some essential things I needed into my backpack, so I just grabbed my tote and head out the door to the airport.
The first time I noticed totes was while in Krakow. There I spent a couple of days exploring the city and its numerous art galleries and coffee shops. Although, wherever I headed, I found people carrying around tote bags. Not only women but men and children as well. Being honest, it looked like a really comfortable item to carry around. As soon as I found the tote bag that I threw into some corner after landing in Poland, I started to carry it around as well; to the grocery store, to concerts, or even while going to the mall. It just worked so well.
When I came back to America, I found that such a trend wasn't happening... and it shocked me. But, me being me, I decided to try out and introduce it. Maybe it will fail. Maybe it will go on to find a niche market. I don't know. I just know I have my own little tote and I hope some people can get there own as well.
So, coming THIS FALL, Kaze will release 6 individual tote bags with 6 different designs. (Mind you, only 6 because we are an INCUBATOR SPACE, so we don't have the resources to mass-produce). We will be announcing soon the designs along with any artists we are collaborating with.
