THE CLASSIC TOTE
Timeless and distinctive. Timeless, because we have been making them forever. Distinctive because this bag has been a classic for over 60 years. Our classic tote is an iconic shape and color scheme that is recognized around the world. Plus, we have a size for every purpose.
Purpose is what our tote bags are all about. These bags are not made for the "opera"; rather they are workhorse bags made for everyday, rugged use. When they get dirty, just wash them in a standard washing machine. Strong and well crafted, they carry a lot with style and an appealing look that is totally Mills. Take our "Ice Bag" as an example. Originally made to haul block ice from the Ice House down to the dock so that the "ice box" could be chilled, it has survived to currently be our most popular tote bag. In fact, no bag is as copied or ubiquitous as a tote, but like you, this is the original.
Crafted from #8 cotton duck canvas, and built to last a lifetime. Beautiful and machine washable....over and over.
Quality and color have been our hallmark for our 60 years of making bags. With every bag, you get the same quality and attention to detail that comes with every Wm. J. Mills & Co. product. Our large color palette of available fabrics makes these bags a match with every taste, and our silk label quietly tells all that you carry the very best. On-line we offer three sizes; our largest, "Ice Bag" carries a bundle and is great if you want to haul a lot from here to there. The "Gear Bag" is more of a handbag size. The smallest, "The Mills Tote" is ideal as a purse for daily use. Please note that only the Gear bag and Ice bag have interior zippered pockets as shown in the photography. Not all colors are stock, so if you are in a hurry, please tell us in your note screen when ordering.
