Last year the UK government introduced a rule that large surpermarket chains must charge for their bags in order to reduce the number of plastic bags which would be disposed of and to assist with cleaning up the environment. This brought the UK in line with most western countries, and started a rush to purchase foldable tote bags.
A year later, Smythson, following the example of many luxury brands have created the "Kingly" tote to allow luxury consumers to carry their shopping in style, or merely to use as a packaway tote day to day. Lightweight, packable, and easy to carry, in dimensions of 34.5 x 39 x 9cm with a 21cm handle drop, it has space for all your shopping or daily needs.
Available in silver, nile blue with black handles, or all blakc, it costs £450 for blue or black, and £495 for silver.
