the perfect tote

I sure do love tote bags - especially the plain, off-white cotton ones with black type silkscreened on it. Maybe it's the neat woven texture of the fabric, or maybe its the extremely satisfying feeling of running your fingers over the edge of the dried ink.

Sadly, it's rare to find a well-designed tote bag nowadays. They are one of the most exploited items by designers/artists/merchandisers out there, because they're literally a canvas you can print anything on. Got a design? Just copy and paste it on a totebag!! D: (Don't even get me started on the cropped edges) 

So imagine my excitement when I came across this tote bag by fieldguided:

love at first sight!

Not only is the type well-kerned, but the size and positioning on the tote is just perfect. Match that with a dreamy quote and lovely photography - immediately added to my wishlist!!
