What makes our bags better?

When we first launched our bag collection in March 2020, we set ourselves the challenge of creating a better kind of bag. One that was as sustainable, thoughtfully designed, and durable as we could imagine. We introduced ocean-bound marine plastic to our material lineup, using it to create versatile, machine-washable styles made for work, travel and everything in between. 

Nearly two years on, we’ve continued expanding our collection of sustainable bags—most recently with the addition of The Lightweight Tote and The Wristlet. We’re all about innovation, and we won’t stop on our quest to make even more versatile, durable styles unlike any other.



 Anything leather can do, our bags can do better.

That’s a bold claim—but we stand by it. From lightweight totes to versatile handbags, our bags for women are skillfully crafted and made with quality materials that are built to last, so you know they’ll stay by your side for the long haul. Beyond that, there are a ton of other features to love. Let’s dive in.

Thoughtful design. 

Our bags are all about the little details. The Lightweight Tote comes with a handy key leash to keep your add-on accessories secure, while work-ready styles like The Handbag and The Essential Tote feature durable bag feet to prevent scuffing.


Remarkably durable.

Don’t be fooled by their flexible design. Made with durability in mind, our bags are designed to hold up to multiple washes and are rigorously tested to ensure longevity. This means having a staple you know will last for seasons to come.


Made for versatility.

We believe a bag should effortlessly take you through multiple occasions. Our Wristlet features a detachable wrist strap that you can connect to any bag (or clip into The Tote), while our handbags come with durable top handles and an adjustable, detachable strap that you can wear your way.


Designed to fit your life. 

Wherever you’re headed, there’s a style that’s made for you. If you’re searching for an everyday bag, The Lightweight Tote is an ultra-light, flexible staple with plenty of space for your groceries, picnic mat, water bottle and more. Need a workhorse that carries it all? The Essential Tote or The Bucket Bag is the answer—with space for your 15” laptop, books, chargers and organizers.



 100% machine washable.

Washable bags, anyone? Whether you’re using a pouch for makeup or a market tote for your groceries, you never need to worry about spills or stains. Whenever it needs a quick refresh, simply toss your bag in the wash and it’ll look good as new. Read more about how to keep your bag sparkling on our care blog here

Sustainably crafted.

Crafted with a blend of ocean-bound marine plastic and Rothy’s signature thread (spun from repurposed plastic bottles), our bags are knit with 100% recycled materials. This results in soft yet structured styles that are big on style—and light on the planet. 

Now that you’ve gotten to know a bit about our bags, it’s time to explore our world of styles for every occasion.
