Spring into the season with a bold French tote ($158) from Roots. It’s a workhorse of a bag—one large compartment fits anything and everything you need for a busy day at the office or a jam-packed weekend—but its colourful prince leather body trimmed with vegetable-tanned leather ensures a supple material that only softens over time.
Roots is an internationally recognized brand with an iconic Canadian history. Their logo incorporates the beaver, the furry creature that appears on our 5-cent coin and Parks Canada emblems. The first Roots store was established in 1973 by Michael Budman and Don Green who were inspired by Ontario’s Algonquin Park. Their company transformed a love for the Canadian wilderness into the distinctive leather goods and athletic wear you see today.—RM
