A tote is a type of large bag that is intended for shopping or used as a handbag and usually has two parallel handles and no closure. Totes are made of durable fabric such as leather, plastic or durable cloth with handles and a bottom that are reinforced with even stronger material. Recently heavy nylon has become very popular as a material for totes as it is sturdy and easy to take care of. The name comes from the word tote which means to carry and was first used to describe this type of bag in the 1900s.
