Full Description

Large Open-Top Main Compartment

The main compartment of the Original Small Shop Bag can fit a lot! It's perfect for your farmer's market haul, to-go lunch, books, or folded up clothing.

The inside of the Original Small Shop Bag has two deep, open-top pockets you can use for items like wine or water bottles. When not in use, you can fold the entire bag into one of these pockets (see video here) if you want to save space, or store it inside your larger bag until you need it.

There are 2 O-rings in the interior of the Shop Bag. On one of the O-rings is a Key Strap and the other is unoccupied so that you can clip on a pouch, if you want.

Piping on the Seams

We've piped the seams with the same stiff plastic material used on hat brims. This piping gives the Shop Bag just enough structure to stand up while you're filling it.

PORON® Foam-Padded Handles

In addition to its good looks and organization, you'll notice that the Original Small Shop Bag's PORON®-padded handles make it comfortable to carry, even when it's quite heavy. Designed to be an ideal length that will allow most people to carry the bag in their hand or wear it over their shoulder, these handles successfully prevent that awful hand-slicing or shoulder-tugging experience of lugging traditional non-padded fabric handles. The PORON® will never break down or wear thin, no matter how many trips you make to the store.

What's Included

8" Snaphook/Snaphook Key Strap

As with most of our bags, we've included a key strap. 8" long from tip-to-tip, a snaphook on either end. Good for attaching your keys to.

What's Optional

The Original Small Shop Bag is the perfect bag for adding your own modular organization or clipping accessories into the O-rings, if you want. We recommend taking a look at our collection of organizational bags.

    Fantastic All Purpose Bag!

    I love this bag. It is well made, spacious, quality fabric and great for my day to day. I can carry my lunch to work and then load it with odds and ends I pick up from the store. It is comfortable to wear on the shoulder. Buying more.

    Quickly’s become my favorite tote bag

    The small shop bag is my favorite bag to carry for a small picnic, for a short grocery run, or while going to a cafe and bringing a book or two. The cotton twill used in the bag is also extremely soft and hope that Tom Bihn can make more bags in this material.

    Great errands bag!

    Soft, flat, and easy to take with me for errands instead of grabbing yet another plastic bag!

    Olive Cloth Small Shop Bag

    I have plenty of TB shop bags. I ordered one of these because cotton seemed durable enough and wasn't plastic. It's a minor virtue test and another excuse for a TB bag. In short, it's great.

    I'm very conscious about what I put in to it because it won't shed water nor clean as easily as the other fabric options. I knew this going in and have no unrealistic expectations that cotton could be what it is not. It's a great solution for utility functions.

    For grocery shopping, I prefer the combination of a truck and an original shop bag in a waterproof fabric. But this bag in this fabric fills a niche for me and I'm glad that I have it.

Sewn in Seattle

Our bags are designed and sewn right here in Seattle, Washington, U.S.A.

That allows us to be control freaks in the best way possible; we have direct control and oversight of the quality of our materials, our products, and the jobs and working environment that we help create. It also offers us a unique spontaneity: when we have an idea for a new product or accessory, we can design it, figure out how to build it, add it to our website and be ready to ship it out our front door all within just a few weeks. How cool is that?

Intrigued? You can find out more about the unusual way we do business on our Company Philosophy page.

THE BIHN Guarantee

Everything you buy from us here at TOM BIHN is satisfaction guaranteed. We’ve been in business since 1972 and we stand behind what we make.

If something goes wrong and it's our fault, we'll fix it for free. Repairs due to normal wear and tear or due to other things that are not our fault will be performed, when possible, at a reasonable charge right here in our Seattle factory where your bag was made. Defects in materials or workmanship are uncommon and almost always evident while the product is still new. Keep in mind that bags and packs are often subject to extreme wear in everyday use: do not expect them to last forever. Only true love lasts forever! You can expect a TOM BIHN product to give years and years of hard service.
