Toteteca Bag Works in a relatively new company that offers people the chance to custom make a bag to their unique preferences. Choose everything from the design, outer + lining cover, fittings & a monogram.

Everyone like different kind of bags, some like them smaller one some larger, other like them structured & then there are people that prefer hobos. But whatever your choice, Toteteca will have the bag for you (see all the designs here). Choose what you like + pay. The bag will be made & sent within 3-5 days. Shipping is free in India (they ship internationally too) & costs start at just ₹900 & go up to ₹3,500.

They offered to send me a bag of my choosing.  After looking at the large variety of bags available it took me very long time to first zero in on the design & then the color – I guess that’s what being spoilt for choice feels like? If you ever feel stuck the gallery can be helpful.

Older readers will probably know that I have a serious weakness for box bags, so in the end I picked a Small Carry Case with a Dark tan body, Cranberry lining & gold fittings, with an inside monogram.This became the perfect carry case for Ada the globetrotting doll, who was visiting me for a while.

I’m quite pleased with how this turned out. With a reasonable price point & pretty great customer service, I’d definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a little accessory that’s very you. It would be the perfect gift too, especially if you let the recipient customize it.

If you decide to get one of these, do show me a picture. I’m very curious to know which bag speaks to you as an individual.
You can stay updated with all of their new designs & see some great combinations on their facebook page, they’re even on twitter & instagram.
