Polka Dot Tote

This large tote is made with Marimekko fabric. Yes, I brought some with me! Couldn’t resist. This tote has the same cut dimensions as the other totes, 16″ x 18″ x 3″. The polka dot fabric is 100% cotton. Inside the lining is in a black cotton blend, with 2 large pockets and a key holder. Magnetic closure. Lots of room to take on an outing or an overnight. Made here in Africa.
