There are many things we love about this tote from the San Francisco brand, Farm Tactics. Prime among those reasons is the designer and owner of the brand, Kyle Ng. Farm Tactics’ mission statement is the following, “Our company is inspired by folk based storytelling, and we strive to create garments that tell simple narratives using textiles and colors.”
Kyle uses that same inspirational and organic process when making his unique totes. The fabrics he uses are sourced from flea markets and incorporate various reclaimed materials (faded Cordura, military canvas etc). Kyle’s Dad was a rock climber during the 70′s and 80′s, and he came up with the genius idea of using his father’s old climbing rope as handles for his totes – a brilliant design detail that would instantly separate his bags from everything else on the market. Among his main design inspirations are Japanese brands like 45RPM and Kapital, both names we truly respect at Man of the World.
These Farm Tactic totes are roomy, durable, stylish (the color-blocking on them is quite spectacular), and they lend themselves excellently to any type of weekend excursion; shopping, antiquing, a day at the beach, picnics, etc).
