City Totes

A slow fashion company offering small batch production of totes & purses made with deadstock textiles. Timesless design, woman owned & handmade.

Vivienne Westwood said it best: ‘Buy less, choose well, make it last.’

  • Small Batch Production

    Small Batch Production is distinguished by quality, locally sourced & manufactured items that are produced on a smaller scale with slower production time. It also includes spending more time on the design process, ensuring that each piece is quality made.

  • Why Slow Fashion?

    The Slow Fashion movement encourages a variety of sustainable practices, including environmental consideration to water usage, waste & landfill diversion. The principles of slow fashion include: sustainable materials, fewer collections, fair trade, minimizing waste, making great use of resources and transparency.

  • Locally Sourced

    The Greater Philadelphia area's textile recycling movement is having a renaissance. The goal is shifting the local textile system into a circular one that seeks to eliminte waste, keeps textiles in use for longer periods & redesigns end-of-life materials into new, usable items.
