ToteBag Factory |


As summer is closing in, a series of fun outdoor activities come within reach. At the top of our list is having a delicious lunch while enjoying a breathtaking scenery. Going for a picnic is a wonderful way to relax your mind and reconnect with nature while savoring a home-cooked meal. Whether you choose to go by yourself, or someone dear, it is a great escape from the urban jungle. 

We all know too well that food is essential for a quality experience, so you need to ensure that the meal you prepared stays fresh and crisp. We have outlined the main boxes that the best picnic tote bag needs to tick and compiled a list of our favorite items that meet these requirements.

What to Look for in the Best Picnic Bag


Be ready for a new season of scenic picnics with the best tote bag at your side. You might wonder how you can identify the gems between the multitude of options available. Below are some of the main traits your companion tote should possess.


Look for picnic bags that are engineered to be durable and long-lasting. For this, fabric selection is key. Canvas, cotton, jute, or non-woven are always a safe bet. What is more, if you care to be extra-environmental friendly, go for a recycled alternative. You need a sturdy bag that can safely hold all the food and drinks you need to transport for a lavish picnic.


The ideal picnic tote bag is easy to wash. No matter how careful you are, the bag will get dirty. The exterior is exposed to earth and grass stains, while the interior might have some food spillage. These risks can be easily diminished but not completely eliminated. Make sure that you safely secure all containers and bottles placed in the bag to prevent any food or drink stains. Also, try to keep your bag on the blanket next to you and avoid placing it directly on earth or grass.


Select a tote bag for your picnic that can fit all the products you require for the experience. There are a great variety of size options available, so go with the one that fits your needs. A smaller bag might be easier to transport, but of course, it has a limited capacity, so you will need to be selective with what to take along. Larger items, on the other hand, may hold everything you desire; however, they can be more troublesome to carry. 

Cooling Capabilities

A cooler bag is somewhat of a must-have if you are into picnics. These are especially practical on hot summer days. The food you transport can heat up even on your way to a favorite nature spot. If you go by car and leave the bag in the trunk, it will be exposed to some pretty high temperatures. While simple bags are great for holding snacks, utensils, and other items you might need, you might also want to enjoy a cool drink mid-lunch.
