Local & Sustainable Production

Proud Member of SFMade.org, joining other makers committed to keeping the vibrant manufacturing industry alive in San Francisco.

Waste informs my design, production and the very nature of my reusable products. Materials are sourced in California, when possible and contractor team members are located within 2 miles of my studio. Our patterns are marked to have minimal waste. No part of a hide is wasted. Left-over leather inspired new designs., leaving only a hand-full of scraps.  I am never satisfied; always looking for new ways to improve.

Remodelista Article about Millie Lottie Totes

Object of Desire: Multipurpose Insulated Picnic Totes by Millie Lottie - they are multipurpose and not just for picnics (take the cutting board out and you can use it as a market bag, a beach bag, an overnight bag, or in my case, a sports bag)

Remodelista's Fan WinstonEditor

Reusable bags have come a long way. I use mine for all sorts of things but I stepped up my bag game when I found these Millie Lottie bags. Made of super durable canvas with a scorch-proof, wipeable lining, these are perfect for carrying a hot-out-of-the-oven casserole to Thanksgiving dinner, bringing appetizers to the Hollywood Bowl or a picnic lunch on the beach. They come with a beautiful cutting board that fits perfectly into the bottom and is great for stability, elastic pockets for wine bottles or salad dressing and are washable. My favorite part about them is that they are stylish, modern and handmade in San Francisco by a women-run company.

“My Millie Lottie tote makes an ideal beach bag since it has an insulated liner along the bottom that helps keep foods and drinks cold and protects the bag from wet towels and suits.

When we saw your bags at a local show, we immediately knew they would make a perfect wedding gift and we were lucky enough to need one right away! The Newlyweds loved it so much, they used it the day after receiving it in the mail. And since seeing you, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about them and have put one on my personal gift list!
