Object of Desire: Totes Made from Vintage Quilts

We love a good-looking, hardworking tote bag. Outside the home, it can be used as a market tote, weekend bag, or oversized purse. Indoors, because it has some structure, it can act as a storage bin. Recently, we spotted a tote that we can’t stop thinking about.

Forestbound’s one-of-a-kind tote bags made from reclaimed materials like vintage quilts feel both of the moment (see Trend Alert: The Great American Patchwork Quilt Comeback—as Art, Clothing, and, Yes, Bedding over on Remodelista) and timeless.

Here are a few favorites:

This one features a 1950s-era vintage quilt and measures 18 x 15 x 6 inches. Each one-of-a-kind bag is $175.
