The Tote Handbag


NOVICA presents with great pride a distinctive tote handbag collection created by some of the world's finest artisans and designers. Made from a broad assortment of materials including cotton, leather, and silk, our tote handbags are offered in just about every popular shade to help you coordinate your accessories with your wardrobe. Arturo Martinez is a leather craftsman who produces tote handbags from his native nation of Peru. His extensive gallery of products includes shoulder and evening handbags. So if you are searching for that elegant black evening clutch to match your favorite black gown, Martinez is sure to offer many appealing options. Thanradee is a handbag artisan who claims that her designs and products are "excessively Thai." A glance through her colorful collection affirms this statement, as she works with natural fibers that are indigenous to Thailand, such rattan and bamboo. One such vividly colored tote handbag, which she names "Crimson Basket," showcases the natural textures of tube sedge reed. Browse through her entire collection to find the ideal complement to any outfit. We hope you enjoy!
