Marry the understated, goes-with-everything sophistication of a simple tote with Bellroy’s signature refinement and efficient storage design, and the result is the instantly iconic Tokyo Tote. Inspired by the stylish, organised culture of Japan’s capital city, this Tote is efficient and immaculately finished.
With a water-resistant fabric made from recycled bottles, the Tokyo Tote’s Forest colour adds a warm, subdued character, making for a stylish, casual carry option that’s equally at home in a professional setting, on a shopping trip or a holiday weekend. Featuring handles made from soft nylon webbing, you can spend hours wandering a market or a day dashing from meeting to meeting in absolute comfort.
The exterior is stunning, no denying, but the inside is where the Tokyo Tote shines. Designed to maximise efficiency, the internal pockets sit flush against the bag’s walls, staying out of the way when not in use so you can fit more in. With an internal pockets tailored for a 13” laptop, plenty of space for bulkier items like books and drink bottles, and tiered pockets to keep must-have accessories like sunglasses and cables ready to hand, this tote bag is a convenient, organised solution to keep your life in check.
Each of the bags in Bellroy’s Recycled Collection turns single-use plastic bottles into a strong polyester, which is then woven into a durable fabric that can stand up to the trials of everyday carry. This process saves up to 30 bottles per bag from ending up in landfill, and that’s a key part of Bellroy’s plan to recycle more than 7 million bottles by 2021. As well as cutting down the amount of waste in the world, the move to using natural or recycled fabrics for 90% of their woven materials means Bellroy is shifting away from reliance on the petroleum industry, making this plan a win-win scenario for the environment.
Bellroy puts its heart, soul and countless design hours into helping the world carry with greater simplicity and ease. Every piece has been deeply considered to help you get the best of life’s little moments. Since redefining wallet design in the early 2000s, the Bellroy range has moved beyond pockets and includes pieces for your tech, work and more – right down to your keys. Because as long as there are things to carry, Bellroy wants to find better ways to carry them. Bellroy constantly pursues better ways to source leathers, reduce impact on the environment and make sure everything lasts as long as possible.
