Travel Must: TOMS Bags

Keeping with their giving philosophy, purchasing a bag from their collection helps a mom and baby in need.


Just last month TOMS, equally known for their classic canvas shoes as they are for their philanthropic business model, branched out even further to offer a diverse collection of bags. Keeping with their giving “One for One” philosophy, for every bag purchased they will help provide a safe birth for a mother and baby in need for women in Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Haiti and India.

Artisan-inspired, the bags range from backpacks to cross-body bags and weekend duffels, with prices ranging from $30-$338. We love the idea of travelling with a bag that’s not only practical, but makes a difference too. You’ll be able to find them on their website and select retailers across Canada.

Below are a few of our favourites from the collection.


Perfect for trips when you need to be hands-free. Indigo Ikat Traveler Crossbody, $86,


It’s essential to have a straw tote when heading to the beach. Black Multi-Chevron Straw Islander Tote, $108, 


Active travellers will appreciate the convenience and style of a backpack that also includes a padded tech pocket. Citrus Waxed Canvas Trekker Backpack, $86,


Wheel-y luggage is not always practical (like when you’re on safari), which is why we love this linen duffel with plenty of room and a sturdy strap. Linen Woven Wanderer Duffel, $164, 


An on-trend alternative to a classic backpack, this drawstring duffel is perfect for active or city adventures. Chili Chevron Canvas Reef Drawstring, $86,
