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.
Mary-Louise Parker first heard about Parker Clay when she was introduced by a friend, and immediately resonated deeply with the mission of Parker Clay. With her own daughter adopted from Ethiopia, the country held a special significance for Mary-Louise, who reached out to our founders, Ian and Brittany Bentley. That began an intercontinental friendship that would cover ground from Los Angeles to New York City to Ethiopia.
"I was already in love with the Bentley family and Parker Clay, but traveling to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to meet the women and men who make these gorgeous products was indescribable. Typically the artisans behind a product are forgotten, but at Parker Clay the artisans are celebrated, they are the motivation at the heart of the company" says Parker.
