As lockdown restrictions start to ease, we're finding we have a long list of essentials to carry with us, but often limited space to house them.
The usual 'keys, phone, purse' checklist has now been extended to face mask, hand sanitiser, hand cream, extra jumper, blanket, umbrella - the list goes on.
Why we rate it
The Faux Leather Tote Bag ticks all the boxes.
This design is the perfect size to fit your essentials, and take shopping, for dinner, to work or for weekends away.
It is made from vegan faux leather and comes in three classic colours; black, tan and cream.
The bag features a zip fastening, which is a huge safety (and rain-proof) tick for us, as well as adjustable straps for extra comfort. It also has an internal pocket to keep your valuables safe.
The best part is, this classic handbag can be wiped clean.
