Caroline Tote

A Better Bag for A Better World

The Caroline Tote is the everyday bag for the woman who does it all - and does it in style. Designed in collaboration with Mary-Louise Parker, American actress, and activist, the Caroline Tote was inspired by and named for Parker's mother, Caroline Louise Parker.

Our sleekest tote yet, the Caroline is thin-strapped and lightweight yet spacious and strong enough to carry a laptop around town.

A Timeless Tote

Minimal in approach, the Caroline is a lightweight leather tote without the bulk. Featuring a delicate profile and thin strap, its construction still allows for a bag that is both spacious and strong enough for daily use.

Premium, Full Grain Leather

We use only premium, full grain leather from Ethiopia, hand selected to ensure quality, beauty, and durability. But what's "full grain", you ask? Full grain leather is the way leather should be; it's the highest quality available and represents the natural and unaltered hide. It's not sanded or weakened, and is as tough as nature intended it to be. Our leather is built not just to last, but to get better with every passing year.

Your Choices Matter

Products from Parker Clay are life-changing – for their lifelong owners, yes, but also for the women who create them. Many women in Ethiopia have little or no opportunity for professional skill development or long-term careers, and many turn to coercive, dangerous work to provide for their families. Approximately 1 of 4 women in Addis Ababa (the capital of Ethiopia) are unemployed, and over 150,000 are in prostitution.
