Share food in style

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

Fan WinstonRemodelista Editor

I stepped up my bag game when I found Millie Lottie bags. Made of durable canvas, a scorch-proof:wipeable lining, they 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. My favorite part is that they are stylish and made 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.

This amazing insulated tote from @millielottietotes holds a 9x13 inch pan, say full of lemon bars.

I am so loving my tote and have gifted two other's in the past month...beauty and function co-existing while supporting strong women and entrepreneurship in the contest of sharing a meal. BOOM! What a powerful and practical partnership.

Sustainable

 It is quite easy to be ZERO-WASTE when you are consciously involved in and control the production carefully. Sustainability informs my personal food choices, design decisions, production process and the very nature of my reusable products. I consciously source materials in the U.S.; work with team members within two miles from my studio; and patterns are designed and fabric cut for minimal waste. No part of a leather hide is wasted, leftovers inspire new designs. I am never satisfied; always looking for new ways to improve. 

Give Back

We donate a portion of every tote sold to a non-profit that provides nutrition education in under-served communities.

Tools of the Trade

“I love branding my totes—it signifies they are ready to leave me and go out into the world and begin carrying and sharing food. I remember the first set of totes I branded: I practiced so many times prior to setting the iron on each finished tote. When I first felt the iron making its way in to the leather, leaving its mark, I was hooked. Seeing the name on the products is the final step in production and it’s as if my mother Mildred and Aunt Lottie have given their final approval. My family made jokes they were all ready for their ‘Millie | Lottie’ tattoo.” -- JAN HAMMOCK, DESIGNER + MAKER
