Our road trippin once again takes us back to the magical forests of Småland, where my family has a cottage by a lake in the woods. It is from this area that our hunter green color “Hamneda Forest” comes. I know, sorry for being a tease … Hamneda Forest, along with our camouflage pattern, will be released this fall, hopefully around mid-late August, so keep on the look-out!! Oh, and btw, at the cottage, gender stereotypes for some reason always kick in – hence Max gets to carry all the luggage!!

I ran into a friend yesterday, who told me how a full thermos of coffee had spilled in his tote. He quickly threw it in the laundry machine and was astonished at how well it came out. We don’t normally recommend the washing machine, mainly because our heavy-duty, stiff cotton canvas will come out with wrinkles that can be hard to iron out. Also, the fabric will lose some of its stiffness due to the harsh treatment of the washing machine. However, we’ve given it many goes, and scrubbing it down with some soap or detergent really does the trick!

"When life gives you lemons, make a lemonade stand." - And boy if he did!! My first-born son Seth, a mini-entrepreneur, going at his 3rd year making and selling lemonade at the Falsterbo beach.
It's homemade, it's fresh, it's ice-cold ... if you are lucky enough to be there, don't miss out before they're all sold out!

Naturally there was a thought behind yesterdays Midsummers Tote-games … to put the Totes to the test, to see if they really are as strong, sturdy and durable as I’ve fought hard to create them.
And I must say … after having let 13 adults and 17 kids throw things in them, jump sack in them, and fill them to the last possible limit, they still look absolutely awesome – or rather TOTESOME!!! I really do believe Quality is the best business plan, and I promise you, I will always strive to keep this my top priority!

I went grocery shopping with my mom today! She needed a ride after having had surgery which prevents her from driving - and what a walk in the park to go shopping with her instead of the kids!
Only issue was that the contents of her one shopping bag looked a lot more tempting than my summer-holiday-kids-eat-a-ton over-full bags. Might have to go over to hers for dinner! Oh, and btw - I promise that our Totes truly are the best shopping companions you will ever find - strong, sturdy, just-right PACK-it perfect size, and very stylish of course!

Since I can never resist collecting more and more totes, I try to think of creative ways to put old totes that have started getting dirty and beat up to use.
At the moment I find that the BRING / small / short handles / zip-top is the prefect companion while gardening.

For sure, the best sleep-overs must be those of staying over at grandma & grandpa’s, being completely spoiled with too much candy, ice-cream, chips and staying up late. No wonder these little girls are so psyched! The best sleepover companions are our
PACK-it-Perfect (medium) and BRING-it-all (small) totes!

We just love using our perfect canvas tote bags for a picnic at the beach. When those stressful days hits you hard there's nothing more relaxing than bring your food to a spot with a beautiful view and relax! Our perfect spot is of course the beach.

What do you give someone ready to set out and save the world, who is young, wild and crazy, full of dreams and plans for the future? A set of dinner plates for their first apartment, where only plain pasta will be consumed for years to come? A pretty vase for flowers that won't be bought till adulthood really kicks in? No, give something that will really come to use, here and now, with no obligations to actually love it in 10 or 20 years! A strong and sturdy tote will accompany your graduate on endless summer beach days and will follow along hauling a thousand necessities back and forth to Uni come fall. Plus, it's personal!

Trust me, the women and men working in our factory are just as colorful as they look! They are happy and take great pride in the result. Yes, they work hard, but it is definately a work of pleasure ... and perfection!
This here is one of my favourite guys at our factory in India! Responsible for the important base trifold, his skills and precision work help create the stable and sturdy base that lets you carry more than you could possibly lift.
The work these guys carry out is impressive and admirable, a pure joy to visit and witness!
