The ultimate holds-everything tote for work, groceries, weekly errands, gym, outdoor excursions, and the beach. Made from lightweight water-resistant nylon, The Pauline features a durable, wipe-clean exterior. The interior is roomy enough to store all the tools you need to change the world, with interior zip and patch pockets, as well as a key strap. The front woven panel reminds us of how interconnected we are as a community and that our actions can positively impact others, with the 4 qualities of gravitas (strength, kindness, resilience, fearlessness) making up the center diamond.
Proudly made in New York City’s Garment District, each tote provides a NYC seamstress with 3 hours of work. 100% of the cost to produce this bag goes directly to our community, touching 58 people’s lives: fabric cutters and seamstresses (32%), fabric and trim stores (30%), patternmakers and designers (20%), warehouse and office staff (18%).
“I became the voice of the less articulate young men and women with whom I worked and with whom later I was to join in the fight for improved working conditions and a better life for us all.” – Pauline Newman, an American labor activist who was the first female organizer of the International Ladies Garment Workers Union
