✮✮✮ Like Ogres and onions, my handbags have several layers.✮✮✮
The outer fabric is an upholstery weight canvas; it is 100% polyester, water resistant and SUPER strong. For the lining I have a huge array of different fabrics in luscious colors to choose from.
Sandwiched between those layers are two interior layer that give the bag it’s “bones” making it stiff enough to stand up on it’s own, but still supple and lovely to the touch.
✮✮✮ NOTHING CATCHES THE EYE LIKE A NICE BOTTOM! ✮✮✮
I have my purse fabric printed in panels (which include the bottom to avoid extra seams) and leaving the bottoms plain black seemed boring to me! As I am always up for the unusual and unexpected, I decided to print the bottoms with text. I’ve printed some with inspirational quotes, some with funny ones, and some with downright snarky ones. For an additional charge customers who purchase an Xotic purse (or tote) can have their bottoms customized with text of their choosing.
Seriously how many of us wouldn’t want a little work done on our bottoms ;)
This bag is created with a “default” quote which you can see this in the last picture of the listing. When ordering this bag you have three options for the bottom*.
1. Have your bag made with the default quote. (no additional charge)
2. Have your bag made with a plain black bottom. (no additional charge)
3. Have the fabric printed with text of your choice (purchase using link below)

Haut Totes is a one woman sweat shop, all bags are made in my Northern Nevada studio by me. Though not for lack of trying, (my kids just refuse) no child labor is employed in their creation ;)
