Inspired by shopping at the farmers market and art created by his own family, local Doug Bowler created the Laguna Beach Tote Company to market and make homegrown tote bags.
When shopping at the market, Bowler was stymied by not being able to shop from stall to stall without putting down his shopping bags to make a purchase. His “over the shoulder” tote comfortably solved his problem.
The “hands free” tote embellished with a stylish graphic of seabirds or dolphins is made of high-quality, canvas that can adapt to many uses. The $39.95 tote includes two large pockets and side cell phone pocket and is available at Laguna Beach Books, Fawn Memories and Coast Hardware.
