At first glance, interior designer Sheila Bridges's signature "Harlem Toile de Jouy" designs look like the traditional pastoral scenes that 18th-century French toile de jouy fabric is known for. Look closer and you'll see that the gentleman farmers and lounging ladies of the French countryside have been replaced by stereotypes of 20th- and 21st-century Black leisure: girls jumping rope, women braiding hair, and men shooting hoops.

This structured tote is fully printed on both sides with an open top, interior pouch, and reinforced base with sturdy straps. Choose natural canvas with full color printing and green accents, white canvas with black printing and black accents, or blue canvas with black and white printing and blue accents.
