Today’s post is a review of the perfect Simple Tote Bag by Positive Elements. A brand that I learned about earlier this year and have fallen in love with. Not only do I love their products but I admire their value in creating and producing the highest quality and affordable leather handbags.

“Positive Elements was created to address the immediate needs of families living challenging circumstances. The vision was (and continues to be) to make the highest quality products in a family friendly environment that pays at least 5 times above the minimum wage. Opening jobs and helping good people locally & in Mexico will always be the true mission.” – Positive Elements

I love to support brands that have strong values! Not only that but continue reading to see why their product is so great and why I’m becoming a loyal customer!

One of my favorite pieces from their collection include a previous review of the suede Soho Fringe Saddle Bag. It’s great for travel, weekends, festivals and an everyday staple. As someone who works full time and travels quite often, I always have a favorite tote bag. I’ve had an old one for a few years and have been in the market for a new one. Luckily Positive Elements has a great quality tote bag and it easily has become my new favorite, the SIMPLE TOTE BAG. It’s a great bag that compliments any outfit and it fits my laptop, clothing, water bottle, make-up, basically everything. The handle drop is 11″ and the bag is 12.5″H x 19.2″W x 6″D. It comes in multiple colors and is super soft! It’s made of great quality leather from Italy and made in North America. It has internal magnetic strap closure to keep the bag closed. Inside has a large zipper pocket and a removable leather wallet.

Here’s how the bag looked on me and it’s the perfect size! One side has gold foil monogramming and the other does not.

I’ve been wearing this bag every day since I received it! I wanted to make sure I got some good use out of it before writing this post. It’s definitely my new go-to-bag for work and I know I’ll be taking it with me when I travel. I actually got a few compliments already from girls at work! This Simple Tote Bag is $178, comes with free monogramming and free shipping in the U.S.

Right now you can get this bag or any item in the collection for 15% off using my code “CT15”

    I was literally just looking for a new tote the other day, and this one seems like the perfect size. I also love that it’s simple yet classy and that it can come personalized! You did such a great job shooting and styling it 🙂
