Everyone needs a good bag. Canvas is probably the best natural material ever. Many thanks to A Continuous Lean for pointing out Beckel Canvas Products. Based out of Portland, Oregon Beckel makes really cool stuff. Everything from tents to tote bags and all of it at really reasonable prices. I think as bloggers we can get desensitized to price points, but really you can't beat a tote bag for twenty bucks. Especially 100% American made-buy one and help the economy!
I see a lot of dudes rocking totes on the old interwebs. But I bet your girl would like it a whole lot too. All you diy-ers could go to town on the blank canvas.
