Gentle Woman Canvas Tote
The Gentle Woman canvas tote—arguably the tote of the summer—adorns the arms of everyone from that girl in your foreign language class to influencers like Bella Racelis. The Bangkok-based brand saw a boom in sales as people flock to stores to snag themselves this tote that pairs bold simplicity with a bit of a graphic touch. The brand is big on female empowerment, stating on their website that “Our designs serve variety, modernity, functionality, and excitement straight to your closets.”
COS Oversized Quilted Crossbody Bag

The Good Tote
The Good Tote is a small local brand selling medium-to-small sized tote bags designed with eye-catching, colorful art and inspirational sayings. Their tote bags are unlike other canvas totes out there: they have pockets and zippers, for those who prefer to be able to sort their items inside and keep them there safe and sound.
Longchamp Le Pliage
Longchamp is a classic among generations, so it needs no talking up. But it has seen increased popularity among Gen Z as well due to its versatility, space, durability, and simplicity. While a little pricey, the bags are a great investment for school, the office, as well as traveling!
Local streetwear and lifestyle brand Anakainoo Club—whose name means “to renew your mind”—offers large totes in classic colors as well as their signature green and navy blue. Their two-tone Neverfull totes are simple enough to match any outfit, but are sure to express an affinity for an active lifestyle.
Beyond the Vines
Beyond the Vines is another Singapore-based brand known for their colorful water-resistant dumpling bags. They offer their bags in a variety of sizes, from fullsize totes to the “Teeny Tiny Micro Dumpling Bag.” Dumpling bags come in plain colors and several colorblock combinations. They also come with short handles as well as a long adjustable strap, outer flap pocket, and a snap tab to attach keys or sanitizers to.
COS Quilted Micro Bag
The often sold-out quilted bag, nicknamed the “Cloud Bag” also comes in a smaller size! The pillowy Quilted Micro from COS is made with recycled material and has a zipper to keep your essentials inside. With it bags seen on stars like BLACKPINK’s Jennie, COS is shaping up to be a staple brand to watch.
Longchamp Le Pliage Mini
Another tote that has a smaller counterpart is the Longchamp Le Pliage. The Le Pliage XS handbags boasts the classic leather button flap and short leather handles, but comes in a cute little crossbody size.

Charles & Keith Micro Koa Square Push Leather Bag
Charles & Keith comes in strong with this leather bag with fun flap details and an elongated body. The Koa micro is offered in several vibrant candy colors (and sizes as well!). The brand, despite having been a hot topic because of a TikToker and sparked discussion on the standards of “luxury,” consistently produces fun designs with quality to match.
The Leather Studio Manila
The Leather Studio Manila, whose Instagram is littered with leather items handpainted with artwork of dogs, is an artisan brand selling leather bags, tags, wallets, and other handcrafted leather goods. Their micro product, the Laya, features a crochet abaca base that adds a special Filipino touch to the bag.
