The Dorothy Tote
The Dorothy Tote is designed to carry everything lady cyclists need from bike to office to dinner and beyond. Dorothy’s simple, minimal styling hides a host of clever features:
Dorothy converts from a crossbody bag, to a roomy shoulder tote, to a smaller fold-over style depending on your day
On the inside, a secured sleeve holds your 13” laptop. While three easy-access pockets to hold essentials like wallet, cellphone and keys
Dorothy won’t shift around during your ride, a clippable cross strap anchors the bag in place
Versatile leather exterior straps serve as anchors for your bike lock and blinky light
Our signature simple snap closure keeps your belongings secure
The Dorothy Tote is made of waxed linen, which is beautiful, water resistant and extremely durable
We use plant-based dyes, like turmeric, to create our colors

Founder Jen and her small team make each bag from start to finish in her Downtown Oakland Studio (it's an old print shop!) everything from dying the raw linen, to waxing it with beeswax to sewing the finished bag.
Orders will take an estimated 2-3 weeks from the time of order to ship.
The Turmeric color is actually dyed with the spice Turmeric! So, the dye will fade some with time and wear, just like your favorite jeans.
If you do order a bag in Turmeric, you will be receiving a special one-of-a-kind bag and you should feel excited about allowing the maker to take a little artistic license with your piece! At Checkout, you'll have the opportunity to let us know your preferences in the amount of yellow and the placement on the front panel you prefer.
