- What is a tote bag?
- A tote bag is usually made of cotton or another sturdy fabric. It is large, square or rectangular, with parallel handles sewn at a right angle to the top of the bag. Tote bags are handy for all sorts of things from PE kits to lunch bags - though you’ll often see cloth tote bags used as reusable shopping bags.
