the story behind the tote

In May 2021, I found myself in a slight funk. Living and working from home, during a pandemic and its dreadful lockdowns + no-movement days, was at times mundane and uninspiring. One afternoon, I stumbled upon a tote bag on Pinterest and felt inclined to create one for myself. I painted a tote bag with evil eyes of varying sizes. This bag unlocked pandora's box and spurred on a hobby and stress-reliever that eventually became a problem - I had way too many totes to keep for myself!


I am so excited to embark on this new chapter and share my Totes with the world, the official launch of our Miles Guide Shop.

Our hand-painted tote bags are 100% made in Jamaica with a durable and long-lasting cotton canvas material. Each tote is unique, one-of-a-kind and the perfect way to express yourself whether travelling, staycationing or running errands.

Care Instructions

To protect the hand-painted design on your tote, it is recommended to spot clean or gently hand wash the tote inside out.

Additionally, do not tumble dry or dry clean.  Do not apply bleach to the bag. Use a dry iron on the cotton setting with a pressing cloth to protect the painted area. For any further queries, don't hesitate to contact me via email at
