Caring for your bag

This bag is made to withstand machine washing. However, we recommend to wash it by hand in order to avoid unnecessary abrasion of the fabric fibres and reach a more delicate result. We recommend spot cleaning the bag for as long as you can before completely washing it, in order to maintain its sturdiness.

Spot cleaning instructions:

  • Marks:
    • Depending on the type of mark, you may be able to get rid of it by rubbing a white eraser.
    • For tougher marks, damp a cloth with a solution of water and mild detergent and rub area in circular motion.
    • Oily stains: Apply 3% hydrogen peroxide (commonly found in pharmacies). Rub stained area in circular motion using dry cloth. Start with a small amount and increase as needed until desired result is achieved.

    Hand washing instructions:

    • Fill up a sink or basin with a solution of water and mild detergent.
    • Push bag into the solution gently using your two hands, making sure water reaches all surfaces of the bag.
    • Brush areas with accentuated dirt or marks.
    • Do not bleach.
    • Drying:
      • Use a towel to pat dry the bag. Remove any spots of water accumulation and flatten wrinkled spots.
      • Hang the bag by its handles in a well-ventilated area and let it air dry completely.

    Machine washing instructions:

    • Machine wash cold, delicate cycle. You may need to run the bag through two or even three cycles in the first time you wash the bag, as canvas is water repellent when new.
    • Do not bleach.
    • Drying: Hang the bag by its handles in a well-ventilated area and let it air dry completely.
    • If needed, iron on medium heat setting.
    • As this bag is mainly made of unprocessed 100% cotton canvas, expect 10% to 15% shrinkage of the undyed parts.

      The Only Tote Bag I'll Ever Need or Want

      This is the tote bag of my dreams! I love tote bags in general but have had difficulty finding one that was sturdy, functional, and still cute to wear with any outfit. I customized it to have interior and exterior pockets all around with short handles and a strap -- it's super comfortable and I've been using everyday for the last 2 weeks. It's actually super roomy without feeling too bulky and the pockets inside and out help a lot with organization. The material is super sturdy and so I expect that I won't be needing to replace it anytime soon. I've also recommended this bag to everyone I know who's in search of a sturdy tote bag.

      Perfect tote bag

      I’m writing to tell you that I love my new tote bag. I purchased the petite Amiga in morning glory blue. This bag is perfect for my daily use: plenty of pockets inside and out, generous strap drop for carrying on the shoulder, and sewn on sturdy canvas fabric. I’m a bag lover and will wear this bag proudly for many years. Thank you.

      I searched for an eco friendly tote bag for a very long time. I was extremely happy to find Rather Green. My Amiga Petite in the earth color is wonderful. I wanted a simple but functional bag for carrying books, my iPad, file folders, water bottles etc. when I go to meetings or am out and about. I also didn’t want a super big bag and most that I could find were at least 15L. The Amiga Petite is a great smaller size and looks professional (writer/teacher).

      I need more.

      Highly recommend

      Love this bag. Perfect size for my needs.

      Seems practically perfect!

      Just the right size to use as an every day bag. Pockets hold everything, the straps are just the right length to hold or carry on shoulder. Love that you can pick the colours so you can mix and match!

      Great bag!

      I love this bag. It keeps my drinks standing while hauling other stuff back and forth to school.

      Quality and convenience

      I bought this bag to organize my knitting kit. I love that I could customize it according to my needs.
      Rather Green’s commitment to sustainability and to providing responsibly well-made-in-Canada offerings also impresses me. The bag is also attractive, so I love to carry around. Thank you , Rather Green.

      Perfect for travel

      I used the petite bag for a trip to Mexico and used it as my purse/carry on, then for the days at the pool, it was perfect! I use the large bag for writing/editing materials. I love all the compartments and the look and feel of these bags.
