Each purchase of the Caroline Tote provides 12 hours of employment to our team in Ethiopia
The Mary Louise Parker Tote is the everyday bag for the woman who does a lot - and does it in style. This tote is the sleeker version of our Merkato Signature Tote, large and strong enough to hold a laptop and sweater yet thin strapped, lightweight, and narrower than the Merkato. 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.

    Certified B Corp

    What's a B-Corp?

    A B-Corporation is a for-profit business that uses commerce to contribute to solving social and environmental problems.

    How do you become a B-Corp?

    It's a rigorous process with assessments and inspections to make sure we're upholding the highest standard of sustainability. Everything from production processes, to shipping practices, to how we treat our employees. We get reassessed and re-scored every 2 years, and our score has gone up with every re-test!

    Why are you a B-Corp?

    Well, our mission is the same as it was before becoming a B-Corp! But with certified status, you don't have to take our word for it. We're extremely proud to be part of the B-Corp community because it helps you know that we're doing good, helps keep us accountable in every department, and gives us the opportunity to educate other brands on ways they can make their impact even more positive.

    So you're "just" a B-Corp? Any special awards or anything?

    We're so glad you asked! As it happens, we were recognized as "Best for the World 2021" for Community Impact, out of over 4,000+ B-Corps. So from the most sustainable, impactful brands across the planet, we're officially among the best. Learn more about our impact here.

    Sustainable Leather

    Sourced Responsibly

    Our leather is sourced from independent cattle ranches local to our Addis Ababa factory. This helps to reduce the impact of transportation and help drive economic growth in Ethiopia, as well as induce demand for more sustainable ranching practices. Our end-of-life leather is sourced primarily from food livestock, allowing byproducts to be repurposed for many years to come.

    Full-Grain, Always

    Many leather brands market their products as "premium" or "genuine" leather, which sounds nice, but it's no full-grain. Where their materials are often sanded, thinned, and weakened for a leather that's cheaper and easier to work with, Parker Clay leather is as durable and beautiful as nature intended. Our process leverages raw, unaltered leather, natural dyes, and water conservation practices.

    Guaranteed For Life

    We believe that fashion shouldn't be fast. Rather than buying into trends or fads, we recognize the value in building goods the right way, appreciating them for life, and passing them on to the next generation – no recycling or upcycling needed. As such, we're proud to stand behind our products with the Built For Life Guarantee. Anytime your bag needs some TLC, send it our way for a repair.
