Brek Totes began as a solution to a need — a way to keep my sunglasses, phone, keys, etc. from bouncing around the front of a golf cart. The Mini Tote was the answer. The Mid-size and Large Totes were also designed around specific needs.
Given their origin, Brek Totes can take rough treatment. Exteriors are made of durable materials — outdoor fabric, cotton duck or a cotton twill. Interiors are much more than simple linings. Sturdy materials are also used inside and pockets and zippers are enhanced with decorative touches. Potential wear points are reinforced (for instance, where zipper ends are sewn into seams). Padding and interiors are stitched to the shell to keep bags in shape. And, totes can be washed.
Each Brek Tote is created individually and usually takes between four to ten hours to make, depending on the style of bag. They are crafted with attention to detail — from cutting out the bag to applying finishing touches.
