Canvas totes are all the rage now, especially with the movement away from throw-away grocery bags. While a Whole Foods or Trader Joe's bag is always cool, those who really want to make a statement can now get the Forestbound Carryall No. 3.

The Forestbound Carryall No. 3 is made from over 100-year-old canvas, recycled from apply harvesting bags. The price is steep for a grocery bag ($250), but how much more earth-friendly can you get?

Implications - The charming characteristic of the Forestbound Carryall bag comes from its origin. Salvaged from an apple harvesting sack from the turn of the century, this gorgeous antique canvas was transformed into the ultra-durable tote bag. The bag's size and material make it practical for storage and carrying, but it's the retro feel that makes it a unique fashion accessory.
