Don't be Deceived by the Name!!

New Yorkers Shira Entis and Alex Bell are the creative master minds behind the eco-friendly tote line Fleabags, founded in 2009. According to their site the duo were, "Frustrated by the inconvenience and environmental hazard of accumulating several plastic bags while marketing, they craved a convenient and fashion-hot tote that could fit all of their wares." 

Thus the creation of the beautifully crafted American-made totes.
