Introducing – Canvas Tote Bags!

kbarlow design tote | kbarlowdesign shop are (finally!) live on the site now!

I’ve had a great time working on this little side project in between client work. I love having something creative to work on that doesn’t have a deadline. Something open, and free to end up however it ends up!

It all started when I got my iPad and Apple Pencil last year. I was playing around learning lettering digitally as well as with watercolour paints. I painted the multicolour background on watercolour paper, adding to it however I wanted, and ended up with a bright and colourful background I just love! It’s even got the texture from the paper showing through!

Once I had the basic idea of what I wanted to create, I did a lot of research and searching out Canadian based suppliers that could make these totes (and soon to be tees!) a reality for me, and ordered my sample.

I’ve been using it non stop for almost a year now for everything and anything! I’ve stuffed it full of heavy groceries, used it for beachcombing, weekends away, everywhere! It’s held up perfectly, and is super easy to throw in the washing machine!

There are currently about 40 style/message combinations to choose from online. I’ll be adding more designs in the future, and am always happy to work on custom orders too, so feel free to reach out if there’s something you’d like that you don’t see on the site!
