Rural and Proud Tote Bags

Epicenter’s Rural and Proud tote bag.

A photograph of our Rural and Proud bag was recently featured on GOOD‘s website in an article, “11 Change-Making Designs That Inspire Action.” The piece specifically highlights our upcoming collaboration with Sarah Baugh and Nicole Lavelle, The Green River Magazine: “Believing ‘print can bring a town together,’ The Green River Magazine is a collaboration between ordinary townspeople looking for a place to entrust their stories. Led by Sarah Baugh and Nicole Lavelle, the magazine is seen as an evolved form of the Green River Newspaper, continuing the trend of ‘community-powered’ publications.” If you’re not familiar with The Green River Newspaper, click here to read more.

In addition to being featured on GOOD, our tote was featured online and in the printed version of Country Living Magazine. And, since 2010, we’ve sold over $3,000 worth of Rural and Proud bags!!!

It’s the perfect reusable tote for your trip to the local farmer’s market or grocer. Each bag has been proudly hand screen printed in our humble screenprinting workspace in our basement. The bags are printed using volunteer labor, so all proceeds go directly towards operating Epicenter’s programs. The bag might look small, but you’d be surprised at what we fit inside: a large wallet, an iPhone, a box of Cafe du Monde beignet mix, a can of Cafe du Monde chicory coffee, a box of confectioners sugar, the entire Nightmare on Elm Street dvd collection, a bottle of Two Buck Chuck, and a handful of cilantro… and there was still room! These totes are 100% cotton canvas, 14.5” wide, 16” tall, and weigh 6 ounces.
