So what exactly is a tote? A tote is a large bag mostly with an opening on the top tailored for carrying (or toting – hence, the name) lots of stuff. A tote bag is any bag of varied sizes and materials that mostly does not have fasteners but has a pair of sturdy parallel handles on either side for ease of carrying/holding. It serves as an easy carryall, mostly for shopping or running errands. A canvas tote bag, is made from durable, fabric material mostly woven out of linen or cotton and which material is also used as a base for mediums of artists thus it is tailored for customization and personalization. Being historically used for painting, tents, sails etc, this becomes the perfect material for holding the ink from prints without smudging and flaking the design, plus its fabric becomes impermeable with a simple waterproof coating. These materials are naturally environmental, making it a great choice for those that are eco-friendly.
Through a special weaving process, canvas can be made from other materials but cotton is another great find. A cotton bag has a positive environmental impact as it can be reused and is also cheaper. A big plus of cotton material is it is lightweight (between 4 oz and 6 oz), it retains heat transfer so it is great for screen-printing, it irons on and can easily be sewn on – perfect for embroidery and threadwork. The downside though is it as durable as canvas bags. Canvas tote bags can carry heavier items without worry of ripping during an errand. This is due to the intricate weaving process in manufacturing. Screen printed designs, heat transfer application and iron on logos work well with little effort. Canvas tote bags are sturdy but tend to be heavier (between 8 oz and 24 oz). Most tend to go 10 oz and 12 oz weight. It all depends on how you intend to use the tote bag though, cotton tote bags are tailored for light use while canvas tote bags are heavier yet more durable and tend to last longer.

The most important factor in customizing tote bags may be its marketing capability.
