The Magic Tote Bag from Via No. 9

Photos by Salt Water New England

There are so many good things to say about these totes.   The trim color options are vast and the hues are particularly good.  The unique shape, with its wide base, makes for a very easy to use bag.  The canvas is a sturdy 24 ounce.  The snap closures are also substantial.  And they are made in Los Angeles.  

Offered in bright and pretty trim colors as well as more subdued colors, they are used by men and women alike.  A perfect pocketbook on one hand,  and I am told,  an equally good bag for fly fishing.

Already a favorite warm weather bag.




  1. Would you mind sharing information on the yellow jacket also? It's great looking. Thank you!

  2. I bought it from Hanna Andersson about 15 years ago.

    1. Ahhh vintage Hanna, so good. Thank you!

  3. A tried, and true favourite! Thank you Muffy!

  4. The bag looks something like a classic rigger's bag to be carried aloft for rigging and sail repairs. Lots of pockets inside and out?

  5. Those bags look lovely, and I must add that I cannot recommend Via No. 9 dresses enough. They’re well made, figure flattering, and understated.
