Virginia Johnson Crisscross Hemp Oversized ToteSitting in Starbucks, I saw a type of bag that literally had not ever crossed my mind before: a canvas with leather trim. I know what some of you may be thinking “Ew, canvas? That’s so granola.” But be open for a moment and take a gander at the Virginia Johnson Oversize Hemp Tote.

Made of hemp, which has the appearance of being canvas, this bag makes eco-friendly look fashionable. Unlike many clothes and accessories that are touted as being eco-friendly while proclaiming that the consumer won’t know the difference between that item and a non-green one, Virginia Johnson uses nature in her work.

She is inspired by nature; the sea foam green crisscross pattern is modern and organic, simple but sophisticated. And the leather trim, it makes it so the bag does not look too granola-y. Buy through Shopbop for $282.

    Explain one thing to me:
    Why must hemp, green, natural be sooo dead?
    I would love to see a hemp bag with amazing details. A little metal, chain, glitz? Is there no source for re-cycled metal components? (I know there are, we use them in our line!) I do like the pattern. Very retro. Just imagine this bag with a little patent trim and a cool bit of chain?
    Just an observation!
