"Hey Jute" Tote by Reef

Hey Jute Tote by Reef
This beach tote by Reef wins on two counts: it is made out of jute burlap instead of PVC, and it has a bamboo handle. The juxtaposition of bright oranges and pinks against the understated, natural hue of the jute is vivacious and appealing. Hemp would have been a better choice over jute though, since the tote may encounter wet, potentially mold-incuding conditions. I will also have to take umbrage with the manufacturers if the orange dyes are petroleum-based and laden with undesirable chemicals. Available from Amazon ($28.00) or Island Surf ($14.98)
