7 Trending Classic Designs for Custom Tote Bags

Bag trends come and go, but one style always remains a staple of every wardrobe: The tote. These spacious bags are the perfect accessory to complete your outfit and accommodate everything from gym clothes to laptops.

The exterior also provides a large blank canvas offering the opportunity to personalize your bag with a monogram.

If you are looking for a new bag to add to your collection, try these classic tote designs to create a custom look.
  • Gym Tote Bags
With their generous interior, waterproof liner, and lightweight design, gym tote bags are ideal for lugging your water bottle and a change of clothes to the gym. Unlike other tote bag designs, gym totes typically feature a zippered closure to contain odors and minimize theft.

A stylish gym tote, like the Avery Jumbo Tote, can take you from the gym to the office. The canvas is antimicrobial and stain-resistant, and the reinforced hard base ensures the contents stay neatly packed.

The interior features a zippered pocket for storing small items, and a shoulder strap gives you an additional carry option for heavier loads.
  • Oversized Weekender Totes
There’s nothing like a weekend away to relax and recharge your batteries. However, suitcases can be a struggle to carry, and if you are traveling by plane, many of them won’t fit in the overhead compartment, meaning you need to check them. A spacious weekender tote is a perfect solution to carry all the essentials for an enjoyable weekend getaway.

Threadwell’s Canvas Overnighter Duffel is a roomy carry-all ideal for short trips to visit family and friends. The 20 oz., heavy-duty canvas is designed to hold its shape and resist abrasion, making it suitable for all types of travel, whether you throw it in the trunk of your car or store it under your seat on the train.

It features an internal organizer to store toiletries, shoes, and underwear. The reinforced zipper ends in metal attachments for a padded shoulder strap for more comfortable carry.

Messenger Tote Bag
A messenger bag is the ultimate everyday accessory. Smaller than a classic tote, a messenger tote still offers ample room for your essentials without weighing you down. Look for a messenger tote with an extra-long strap so you can wear it crossbody or over your shoulder.

Threadwell’s Crossbody Bag is a chic, modern accessory that is both functional and stylish. The bag is available in either neoprene, faux suede, or velour fabric in various color combinations to suit your style. The extra-wide striped strap is comfortable to wear and won’t slip off your shoulder.

Shopping Tote Bags
In the age of sustainability, a classic mesh shopping tote can help you protect the planet and stay stylish. These totes are made from rugged, high-tensile fibers that can stretch to accommodate your groceries but quickly regain their shape.

The French Market Mini Tote comes in a range of bright colors to match any outfit. It’s small enough to tuck inside your handbag for trips to the supermarket but stretches enough to hold all your shopping. You can also use it on its own; the stretch mesh holes are narrow and can prevent your wallet and phone from falling out. Alternatively, pair it with the Roller Rabbit Cosmetic Bag to keep all your items organized.

Waterproof Tote Bag
Athleisure couture is a huge trend, and high-performance fabrics and minimalist designs are key features of the style. A waterproof tote bag is the perfect accessory to complete your athleisure outfit.

The bright, bold Rain Tote Bag from Threadwell adds a vibrant splash of color to your athleisure ensemble. Crafted from industrial vinyl-infused scrim mesh, this bag’s high-performance fabric keeps moisture away from your items and offers the ideal blank canvas for customization. Personalized tote bags add a unique touch to your outfit.

Beach Bag
A tote is a practical bag for carrying all your gear for a trip to the beach, but that doesn’t mean you can’t look stylish. A chic beach tote can elevate your swimwear look, whether you’re lounging by the pool or sipping a cocktail at a beach bar.

The Advantage Tote Bag is the perfect carry-all for a day at the beach. The open top provides easy access to towels, sunscreen, and other beach essentials, while the spacious interior can fit a change of clothes and sand toys for the kids. The rugged inner lining resists damage from sand and saltwater, and there are two zippered pockets inside to contain small valuables like your smartphone, wallet, and keys.

Add a monogrammed cosmetics bag to keep sunscreen and after-sun gel organized, or choose a pouch with a waterproof liner to keep your wet swimsuit from damaging other items in your bag.

Camping Tote Bag
A tote bag is ideal for campers who want convenient access to gear without the bulk of a suitcase. A tote is also an excellent choice for kids going to their first summer camp or day camp. The heavy-duty canvas can withstand significant wear and tear, and you can monogram the fabric with your initials, so you never lose your gear amongst other campers.

For a spacious tote that fits all your camping gear and clothing, try the Camo Camp Tote from Threadwell. The tote comes in a range of colors, and you can add a custom monogram in the font and color of your choice to help your bag stand out. When you arrive home, the easy-to-clean lining makes unpacking simple. Just flip the bag inside out after removing your items and wipe residual dirt, dust, and debris from the liner.
