L.L. Bean literally invented the canvas tote bag category. The bag was originally developed to carry blocks of ice (back in the day when block ice was used to keep foods fresh in the ice box).
From these humble beginnings, the bag quickly became recognized for its simple yet elegant functionality. L.L. Bean started to offer the canvas tote in a smaller version and called it the “boat & tote.” It was perfect for lugging around sailing and boating items and the more abuse it suffered the better it looked. So began the WASPy affinity for this multipurpose wonder.Classic boat totes are fool-proof when it comes to grab-it-and-go style. From preppy moms to downtown hipsters, the Maine original (going on 65 years strong), can function as beach bag or everyday tote and looks even better with age. Monogram it for extra panache.
