Tote bags have become one of the most used bags in America. They can be utilized for a multitude of purposes, which explains why they have become so popular. These bags are truly an American Classic. For those looking for convenience and ease of carrying things, the tote bag is often the best suited for the job.
The word tote started to be used back in the mid 1700’s and literally means to carry, with technically unknown origins; originally attested in Virginia. The Oxford English Dictionary questions the popular theory of its origin in a West African language (cf. Kikongo tota "pick up" and Kimbundu tuta "carry, load," linked to Swahili tuta "pile up, carry").
Embroidery a form of art that involves decorating a surface, typically fabric, with designs created by using a needle and thread (or yarn) that started out as a form of hand sewing and eventually advanced into a type of machine sewing. The exact origins of embroidery are hard to pinpoint, but there are many early examples that have survived throughout the centuries from ancient Egypt, Northern Europe and the Zhou Dynasty in China. In many cultures throughout history including ancient Persia, India, Japan, Byzantium, medieval and Baroque Europe - embroidery was a sign of high social status and wealth and became a hugely popular art form.
