the story behind the tote

In May 2021, I found myself in a slight funk. It had officially been a year since I graduated from university and I was admittedly starting to become a bit...haunted. Living and working from home, during a pandemic and its dreadful lockdowns + no-movement days, can be at times mundane and uninspiring.


One afternoon, I came across a tote bag on Pinterest and felt inclined to create one for myself with Evil Eyes of varying sizes. This bag 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, spot clean or gentle hand wash inside out is recommended.

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

share the love!

I love to see how your totes are styled and used on the go!
