I had the fab opportunity to receive a Toteteca bag that I customized myself so I can share my honest thoughts to readers. Toteteca is an online shop that allows shoppers to customize their bags. They offer so many color combinations that it literally took me hours to finally decide on a bag design for myself! Here are some photos of the process it went through before I received it.
The name “Toteteca” comes from the words “tote” which means “bag” and “teca” which is Latin for “library”. Taken literally then, Toteteca is a library of bags. And aptly so. With their wide range of bag styles and colors, you’ll never run out of ideas for bags — whether you want one that’s classy or one that’s hip. Everything really just depends on the color combinations you use.
What I like about Toteteca is that they’re aware of their social responsibility and here’s what they have to say about it on their website:
We do not use real leather of any kind. High quality “faux leather” mimics the look, feel and durability of real leather without harming any animals. We don’t use Rexene or other poor synthetics that chip or peel. We feel it is our duty to encourage positive alternatives that sidestep animal cruelty. We also try to maintain the smallest possible carbon footprint. We source all our high quality materials locally. Maintaining a low waste, centralized manufacturing method is very important for a company looking to the future.
Now that’s a company I’d like to trust!
I decided to go for the Medium Satchel. I went through so many customizations before deciding on my final colors — white/red. I actually really wanted either white/orange, white/mango, or white/green. But I realized I already have orange and yellow bags for spring and since I don’t have a red bag yet, I just went with that. Take a look at the photos I took of the bag. I took some zoomed in ones so you can see the bag in detail.
I like that the bag has enough room so for my son’s stuff. This way, I can bring all my son’s necessities — milk, diapers, wipes, extra clothes — without having to settle for a boring diaper bag. At least my bag is still fashionable yet spacious.
I also love the fact that as you’re customizing your own bag, you get to see exactly how the bag will turn out. I encourage you to try it for yourself! I know you’ll get hooked!
