Custom Embroidered Tote Bags - "Tote" Your Stuff From the Market with Crooked Brook's 100% Cotton Canvas Embroidered Tote Bags - Review & Giveaway - ends 6/15 US

I received two custom embroidered 100% cotton canvas tote bags from Crooked Brook for this post. No other form of compensation has been received. All opinions are 100% my own.
 
 
It's time to head to the market.  Do you have your reusable shopping bags with you?   I do like to bring my shopping bags with me, but I don't like bags that advertise.  I don't like to pay for reusable shopping bags that have me advertise the store's name on it for free!

The reusable shopping bags that I like to use are non-store specific and are totally totally washable!  Washability is a must.  So many people forget all those germs when using reusable shopping bags and just end up getting some sort of sickness from them.  After every shopping trip, my bags are washed!  So what kind of material do I like best - breathable cotton canvas tote bags. They wash easily and dry on the line quickly.



Tote bags have become one of the most used bags in America. They can be utilized for a multitude of purposes, which explains why they have become so popular. These bags are truly an American Classic. For those looking for convenience and ease of carrying things, the tote bag is often the best suited for the job.

The word tote started to be used back in the mid 1700’s and literally means to carry, with technically unknown origins; originally attested in Virginia. The Oxford English Dictionary questions the popular theory of its origin in a West African language (cf. Kikongo tota "pick up" and Kimbundu tuta "carry, load," linked to Swahili tuta "pile up, carry").


What makes a plain tote bag even more better - embroidery!  Embroidery a form of art that involves decorating a surface, typically fabric, with designs created by using a needle and thread (or yarn) that started out as a form of hand sewing and eventually advanced into a type of machine sewing. The exact origins of embroidery are hard to pinpoint, but there are many early examples that have survived throughout the centuries from ancient Egypt, Northern Europe and the Zhou Dynasty in China. In many cultures throughout history including ancient Persia, India, Japan, Byzantium, medieval and Baroque Europe - embroidery was a sign of high social status and wealth and became a hugely popular art form.


Where can you get these fabulous embroidered tote bags?  The best place to obtain a beautifully embroidered tote bag is at Crooked Brook!  What even more exciting is that Crooked Brook is sponsoring a Custom Embroidered Tote Bag Giveaway just in time to “tote” your stuff from the farmer's market!
