Good garden totes can be hard to find. An oversize bag is of little use if it becomes an abyss of unreachable shears, plants, and seed packets. Many leather bags aren’t hardy enough to survive the abuse most gardeners put them through and simple canvas bags either have little in the way of pockets or so many that the main compartment all but vanishes. This handsome waxed canvas bag, originally designed for carpenters, is hand-made by Artifact Bag Co. in Omaha, Nebraska ($155; artifactbags.com). It has a body wide and long enough (8 inches by 18 inches) to carry pots or plants, without unnecessary depth (it’s 13 inches tall). One large inside and two outside pockets can hold smaller or more frequently used items. The waxed canvas lends a sophisticated air while increasing the bag’s durability, and the leather handles and strap signal this bag’s commitment to both looks and labor.
