Our Philosophy


Unique totes from a unique place using unique materials.

We design and make simple, functional and stylish contemporary tote bags responsibly and ethically.

Totealitarian products are designed and made to order in Portugal by hand, by us whenever possible, using cotton canvas, burel wool fabric, cork fabric, cork granules, woollen yarn and cotton webbing.


Design & Materials


Totealitarian styles are based on a simple "flat" tote shape and a "shopper" tote shape with each tote having specific design features for practicality and performance.

Open pockets, zip pockets, webbing and paracord loops, paracord pulls, cork filled sides, cork filled bases, and removable cork filled pillows are spread across our styles in various combinations.

Our tote bodies are made in cotton canvas or burel wool paired with hi-tech cork fabric, expanded cork granules and sport self fabric, arraiolos or webbing handles.

Cork fabric and granules are used as protective materials to provide insulation from heat, cold, and shock to protect those exquisite bottles of espumante and olive oil from the aggression of city living, and your requeijão from the heat of the 24 bus. Used in the right way we think cork fabric also happens to look fabulous.

Canvas

My Image

Our cotton canvas (lona in Portuguese) is made in the North of Portugal mainly on 1950s Picanōl President looms saved from a disused factory and brought back to life with care.

With water and UV resistant properties our weaves, patterns, and colour combos come in weights from 240 to 670 gms (we use up to 410 gms) and are from archives stretching back over 100 years.

Lona dates to the 15th Century when it was used for the sails of Portuguese Caravelas plying the seven seas.

Burel

My Image

Our burel wool (lã in Portuguese) is from the Serra da Estrela mountains and is made in a restored factory started in 1925, on British, Belgian and Italian looms dating from the 1930s to the 1960s.

Made from the fleece of the Bordaleira sheep and sheared by hand, they are traditionally shepherded in mobs of 20 using age old husbandry techniques.

Having waterproof and insulating properties, burel continues to keep mountain shepherds dry and warm today.

Cork

My Image

Our hi tech cork bonded fabric is a contemporary marvel made in S. Joao de Madeira by one of the most innovative cork producing companies in Portugal.

The expanded cork granules, a by product of the cork production process, used for insulation and protection, are made in the South of Portugal by one of the leading cork producers in this field.

Cork is a sustainable and renewable material harvested by expert "corticeiros" from trees every 9 or 10 years.

Arraiolos

totealitarian arraiolos wool
Stacks Image 619

Arraiolos is a traditional Portuguese needlework technique originally developed for making rugs and tapestries and can be traced back as far as the 13th Century. Often taught in high school as an arts and crafts option, the technique is also handed down through generations.

We adapt this time consuming hand technique by using it in a contemporary way to make individual and striking handles for our grand totes. Our Arraiolos Master makes beautiful pattern and colour combinations while our bespoke option allows you to send us some inspiration for your very own handles.

Handles are made of 100% wool embroidered onto a traditional jute base made in the Serra da Estrela region by the only factory making this product.

Cotton

My Image
Stacks Image 623

Cotton webbing has traditionally been used for military and industrial purposes where stability and performance are required for straps and harnesses. Today it is mainly nylon, polyester, or polypropylene. We prefer 100% cotton with a small amount of nylon for added strength.

Made in the Oliveira de Hospital region devastated by the forest fires of 2017 (the original factory was destroyed), our webbing straps and tabs are woven as a single flat piece.

They are soft but durable providing comfortable handles and pulls for our totes and accessories.

We use our signature colours of bright orange and battleship grey for all webbing elements on product.

    (c) the right to erasure;
    (d) the right to restrict processing;
    (e) the right to object to processing;

The first copy will be provided free of charge, but additional copies may be subject to a reasonable fee.
    7.4 You have the right to have any inaccurate personal data about you rectified and, taking into account the purposes of the processing, to have any incomplete personal data about you completed.
    7.5 In some circumstances you have the right to the erasure of your personal data without undue delay. Those circumstances include: the personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed; you withdraw consent to consent-based processing; you object to the processing under certain rules of applicable data protection law; the processing is for direct marketing purposes; and the personal data have been unlawfully processed. However, there are exclusions of the right to erasure.

    7.6 In some circumstances you have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data. Those circumstances are: you contest the accuracy of the personal data; processing is unlawful but you oppose erasure; we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of our processing, but you require personal data for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; and you have objected to processing, pending the verification of that objection.

However, we will only otherwise process it: with your consent; for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person; or for reasons of important public interest.
    7.7 You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation, but only to the extent that the legal basis for the processing is that the processing is necessary for: the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of any official authority vested in us; or the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party.

    7.8 You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes (including profiling for direct marketing purposes). If you make such an objection, we will cease to process your personal data for this purpose.

    (a) consent; or
    (b) that the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are party or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract,
    and such processing is carried out by automated means, you have the right to receive your personal data from us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. However, this right does not apply where it would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.
    7.10 If you consider that our processing of your personal information infringes data protection laws, you have a legal right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority responsible for data protection. You may do so in the EU member state of your habitual residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement.
    7.11 To the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your personal information is consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. Withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing before the withdrawal.
