Hot Shopping: Roots Purse Panache

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.

Canadian Roots

Roots is an internationally recognized brand with an iconic Canadian history. Their logo incorporates the beaver, the furry creature that appears on our 5-centroots-tee09 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
