The Canvas Transport Tote

The Canvas Transport Tote is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 160.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The absolute BEST tote! I cannot say enough about the Madewell totes! I have a leather version but wanted a canvas tote for spring. The color is the most perfect shade for spring and I purchased a Madewell scarf in matching colors to attach to my tote. It’s very roomy with 2 inner pockets that are larger than the leather version. The transport totes are the only handbags I carry anymore. Love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bag! I fell in love with the antique purple version of this bag as soon as I saw it online. It's a good, sturdy tote. The fabric does come textured/wrinkled, but I can't complain since it does show that in the product image. I love the color even more in real life! It matches with everything. The pockets inside are great and very functional as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best diaper bag ever! I tried my goyard, bottega, and lv totes as a diaper bag and I kind of have to be careful so I wanted to have something cheaper but not heavy and doesn’t look cheap. I tried this tote and it’s so light weight and fits two babies stuffs and still look good. Give a shot if you are looking for a diaper bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So nice I bought it twice! I've been carrying the ochre colored one all winter long and love it so much that I just purchased the rose colored one for spring/summer season. I think the color of the rose will stave off the dirt smudges for a long while. It's so utilitarian and fits everything I need in it. It makes me feel so casually put together, like I'm not trying too hard. I wish I had more discretionary spending money to purchase the blue crossbody styled one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE. I’ve been eyeing this bag for MONTHS & my mom got it for me for my birthday! I love it. It’s spacious and the 2 inside pockets are deep :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality tote I have been looking for an open tote bag that was sturdy enough for schlepping back and forth to work each day, often with heavy books and a laptop. While still new, I feel like this bag will be able to handle everything I put in it and still look great. Quality seems great. Size is good! Price point is reasonable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tote-ally worth it! Great bag if you’re on the go or need to carry around more than the day-to-day essentials! It’s roomy with a comfortable strap and simple (in a classy way)! Highly recommend and love the durability of the bag!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to Bag. Perfect for everyday use. The green is a very neutral color. The handles are not too long or short. The canvas is very durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tote! Nice material and construction. Neutral color goes with everything. I added an off-white monogram. Also a good material to use year round. It looks like a fabric that will only improve with age! Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! I needed a new tote for work and I am so happy that I decided to buy this one. It is the perfect size and the canvas is thick and extremely durable. I tend to go hard on my bags, so I was very pleased with how well-made this tote is. Highly recommend!
