Tote-ally Great — New Tote Bag Designs

Art Restart tote bags are now some of our most popular products. Of course, they are popular — these totes have the ability to carry around everything you need on a summer day trip, all of your work supplies and notebooks, and even crucial children supplies or the things you simply cannot live without. They do all of this while sporting unique, colorful artwork created by women at The Gathering Place that are experiencing poverty or homelessness. With each tote purchased, the artist receives a check. The money helps place her on a path to self-sufficiency, but more importantly, the purchase gives her confidence in herself and her artwork.


Our tote bags feature some of Art Restart’s most popular artworks, from Fox by NSF to Buffalo by CLM and The Glades by CSP. Now, we have some new favorites that we are confident you will enjoy! Please welcome, Colorful Bovine by SAM, Rain of Love by KKS, and Ink Splash by eeXee.


Artist SAM enjoys frequently changing her style and subjects to create innovative designs. For the latest round of art added to Art Restart, she worked with cows. Not just any cows, but colorful cows full of life. Moo-Over can now be found on journals and cards, and Colorful Bovine is a wonderful new tote. This red and purple cow with creative white patterning stands out against a white and aqua backdrop of vibrant brushstrokes. Make sure you stand out in a crowd with this fun, colorful, and truly charming tote.

KKS joined the Art Restart team less than a year ago with her playful holiday card design, Dancing Snowmen. Her artwork tends to be playful, colorful, and whimsical, and Rain of Love is no exception. As hearts fall from the sky, a figure shields herself under a colorful polka dot umbrella, standing unfazed in her stunning green raincoat.  

Ink Splash by eeXee continues her fascination with celestial themes as seen in her artwork, Home. The abstract work evokes visions of nebulas and stars clashing together in spectacular fashion. Fuchsias, purples, blues, and orange all come together in a flash, and the combination has already proved to be a hit with the Art Restart community.

All Art Restart tote bags are made of a durable cotton/polyester blend fabric, woven like canvas. It is non-fading and non-toxic, and allows for faithful recreation of the colors in the original artwork. The bag itself is 16 x 16 inches, large enough for many of your day-to-day possessions, and dual handles offer functionality and carrying comfort.


Every tote bag purchase provides a royalty check to the artist and helps continue programming at The Gathering Place. Your socially conscious purchasing makes a difference in the Denver community, and helps women to gain confidence in themselves as artists.
