Clever, clever, clever! This all-purpose tote turns dimensions on their head, making for a very useful if unusual design. With a wide bottom and narrow top, the tote closes up nicely is comfortable to carry, while the side gussets start narrow at the bottom and increase in width at the top so the bag opens up nice and wide.
