The Everyday Inkling Imprint Totes are designed for you to use, you guessed it, every day. Big enough to carry everything you need and nothing you don’t.
Made from digitally printed mid weight canvas, each tote is your own little piece of Inkling artwork to bring a bit of joy and happiness to every day.
The extra wide twill tape handles means they won’t dig into your shoulder, even when they’re chock full.
The tote has a wide base, which makes it easy to find what you’re looking.
Hide & Seek is a digital reproduction of an original Inkling artwork.
Measurements: The Everyday Totes are:
- 48.5cm wide
- 34cm high
- 63.5 cm tall from the bottom of the bag to the top of the straps
- 12cm base
The Artist & The Process
Kathryn Green is the artist behind Inkling. Inklings start their life the same way; paint, canvas, a handful of paintbrushes and a whole bunch of repurposed tools. Colours are hand mixed in small batches and spatulated, squeegeed and occasionally (it’s slow! I’m impatient!) painted onto canvas. I love colour clashing, line, shape and mark making and favour speed over precision. Having said that though, each canvas still takes at least a day, usually two or three from start to finish.
Once completed, the canvases can be used in multiple ways. The Original Messy Bags and Totes are cut directly from this finished canvas.
Occasionally there’ll be a canvas that wants to live on forever! These canvases get stockpiled, sent off to the pros to be captured digitally before returning to me to face the Big Chop.
Before cutting (almost) every canvas (sometimes I am in a rush and forget!), I snap a pic of the canvas on my phone. I use these images as the basis for recreating the artwork digitally in Illustrator. Put simply, I put the photo in Illustrator and then ‘repaint’ it digitally. It’s just as laborious as painting it the first time around - sometimes more so! - but I love the freedom of being able to tweak the original artwork, scale it up or down and recolour it into new colourways.
These digital artworks can be found on Imprint Messy Bags and Everyday Totes.
Art should be accessible, enjoyable, and functional. Let Inkling bring a piece of functional art to your day.
