From utility to keepsake

TOTE BAG

We collect bags. Whenever there’s a giveaway we grab another, always looking for the ones that just work. That market research inspired us to make a custom bag designed to be everything we feel a bag should be, and give it away as our annual client gift. Manufactured in Los Angeles by our friends at EVERYBODY.WORLD, our Ravenhill Studio tote aims to elevate a utilitarian object into a keepsake, and to help our clients hold whatever they need to build, create and curate.

Read our Q&A with EVERYBODY.WORLD below.

 

Designed by us and manufactured in L.A. by EVERYBODY.WORLD, the RS tote tells the story of our obsession with material, manufacturing methods and the physicality of the object.

 

Our desire to give our clients a tote as our annual gift soon became a desire to give them a custom tote, which soon became a desire to give them the perfect tote.

 

We tested prototypes on Studio members until we arrived at the perfect dimensions of a bag and straps suited to a variety of body types. The result is a tote that doesn't touch the ground when carried by the straps, but with straps still big enough to slide comfortably over the shoulder.

 

Built to be a design that stands on its own, our tote features a double sewn bottom panel and a heavy gauge fabric.

 

Our tote is big enough to hold a laptop, with a utility tab on the inner seam to hold your favorite pen or pencil. Two exterior pockets help you stay organized, sized to fit a water bottle and charging cables.

 

 

Our design changed very little between prototype and final manufacture. We knew we had the right design, but when it came to sourcing and large scale manufacturing, we needed to pass the baton. We took our butcher paper pattern to a professional pattern maker, who converted it into a digital pattern. After a few fabric district failures, we finally went to the pros at EVERYBODY.WORLD.

 

EVERYBODY.WORLD helped source a heavy duty waterproof American-made textile for us, which allowed us to do an all-cotton tote with a contrast stitch in three colorways.

 

Called "the perfect chore tote" and "the best tote I have ever owned," our custom Ravenhill Studio tote aims to please. The resulting tote elevates a utilitarian object into a treasured keepsake.
