The Tote: Deconstructed

Take a look inside to appreciate the difference

In the early days of Lands’ End we offered a canvas tote for the “beach, boat and beyond” and it became so popular a legend was born.

We continued to tweak the tote over the years and even made updates suggested by our customers to make it stronger, softer and sturdier.

Lands' End - what makes up our classic Tote Bag

What makes our tote stand out? Let’s take a closer look…

Canvas Cotton

Our 24-ounce cotton “batter-proof” canvas looks better and feels softer than the competition.


Sturdy, reinforced seams give our tote a tip-proof base that’s water-resistant.

Key Fob

Every tote comes with a useful internal key fob with secure clip.


The zips are durable and snag-proof—if you choose to have one, that is.


Reinforced, rip-resistant straps can be worn on the shoulder or held in your hand. In some styles, longer handles are also available
