Food of the Italian Islands Market Tote
The Food of the Italian Islands Market Tote Bag is inspired by Katie Parla's cookbook of the same name. The graphics by the book's designer Ian Dingman conjure the endearingly mismatched tiles of an Italian beach club. Readers will recognise the pattern from the book's chapter openers!
Like Katie's early totes, this one has an excellent feature: an inside hanging 9 x 9 inch pocket with zipper closer, so it's perfect for securing necessities you're taking to the market or to the beach. The 10 oz natural cotton material and 25 inch natural spun poly handles are durable, so you can carry around wine of the Italian islands with confidence!
This baby is durable but be sure to hand wash it to preserve Dingman's illustrations!
