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.

Client Testimonials

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

Melissa Clark's InstagramNYTimes Food Editor

The newlyweds loved it so much, they used it the day after receiving it in the mail. And since seeing you, I put one on my personal gift list!


Love my Etta Tote for delicate produce, kept straight by the cutting board. I love supporting women-run business, made locally.



 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.
