25 Totes that Shout Out Latinx Culture

Tote bags make life so much easier. In them, we throw our purse essentials, office supplies, groceries, gym clothes, and anything else we can cram into them. In some cities, they have replaced plastic bags, and we hope that everyone gets on board with opting for reusable bags for a healthier environment.

Totes also allow you to share something about your life without having to utter a word, much like our equally-loved T-shirts do. While you’re walking down the street with your cute bag, people will instantly know you love maduros, admire Frida Kahlo, and are a proud Latinx. It’s orgullo, it’s fashion, function, and is your own personal style, all wrapped into one. Since we live for a good Latinx tote, we are sharing 25 that you’ll definitely want to add to your online cart. The majority of these fab finds were in the mecca of creativity and supporting indie businesses–Etsy.

su_ella Latin Legend Tote

You had us at Rita, Celia, Frida, and Selena. Jisely Jimenez and Lian Amado started su_ella to inspire Latinas, and we definitely feel inspired with a tote that shouts out four of our favorite, inspiring and empowering Latinas: Rita Moreno, Celia Cruz, Frida Kahlo, and Selena Quintanilla-Perez. It makes anything you drop in this bag feel that more special.
