7 Favorites: The Best All-Purpose Canvas Tote Bags, Under $120 Edition

February 8, 2024

Last week a certain tote bag had the Internet debating—and set us searching for our most-admired, lowest-cost canvas totes.

To our minds, the ideal tote meets a few key requirements: 1) It’s minimal and hardworking enough for everyday use; 2) made from sturdy materials (no synthetics); and 3) perhaps most crucially, it has a flat, never flimsy bottom. That way, it can lug farmers’ market finds, serve as an overnight bag, or stash shoes in the entryway with equal ease.

Behold, seven dependable canvas carry-alls we like, all of which ring in at $100 or less.
