The famous quote ‘Don’t judge a book by its cover’ was first stated by author George Elliot in 1860. This phrase was used by Elliot in the book The Mill on the Floss and became a popular saying in the early 1920’s. (source)

TORRAIN

Recycled style! Torrain bags are made from materials that were originally used to transport fish feed and cement in Southeast Asia. The Torrain bag styles are designed in Portland, Oregon but are made in Cambodia by artisans who benefit from this employment. Get the whole Torrain history on the website.

Style: Tote – colorful, durable, lightweight, and water resistant. Colors and prints vary. This tangerine tote is 15.5 x 20″. It has interior pockets and a zip pocket. The outside of the bag is the original bag material (woven plastic) but the inside of the bag is lined with a cotton/nylon blend.
