The KULE tote is an oversized canvas bag, made in the USA, that has been a staple and favorite of schleppers alike for years. You will always find Nikki carrying one, if not two of these around. As Chloe Fineman said, “It’s very sturdy and a little cheeky and a little funny…It can carry a shocking amount of stuff.” We asked some of our kulest friends to spill their totes for a little insight into just how much baggage they carry 😉.
Nikki Kule, Founder of KULE, based in NYC
You will never not see me with a giant tote, I am always schlepping samples back and forth from my apartment to the office. It is also handy for groceries, or any other last minute purchases. And, for the summer, it is the best travel beach tote. I basically can’t live with out it.

I use my KULE totes all the time. They are beautiful, are the right size, and can carry a lot of weight. Sometimes I even carry our baby Frankie in it. I almost always take: my vintage Delvaux wallet, my KULE face mask, perfume, cookies, clip-on sunglasses, some wool and needles, an Eddie Wollie newspaper, and something I’m working on. We are remodeling our house, so lately I am always walking around with material samples as well.
Katie Sturino, Founder of Megababe, Author of Body Talk, Host of Boob Sweat Podcast, based in NYC
I never leave the house in summer without my Megababe thigh rescue, a hair clip to put my hair up in case I get hot, my AG1 to keep my immune system booster and my hand sani! I also like to bring a bright lip (this one is Cle de Pea) bc I don’t wear much make up in the summer (I just sweat it off!), and I like to bring a book in case I get stuck waiting somewhere and I don’t want to endlessly scroll!

I always carry a lot of stuff. Wallet, phone, airpods, and things for my lips are always with me. Today, I also have my sunnies and an umbrella due to the highly unpredictable weather.

I use my tote as my purse and carry-all for the day. I put all my essentials in a smaller bag so I can get to it quickly (glasses, hand cream, mask, eye drops, chapstick, keys, wallet, pen, notepad, earbuds and portable phone battery). If I pick up things along the day, I already have a bag to put it all in. No more collecting unnecessary bags!
Jim Kuerschner, President of KULE, based in Brooklyn and Bellport, NY
I’m always schlepping back and forth between Brooklyn and Bellport, and these totes are the perfect things to carry all my s#!t. My husband and I normally have a tote for our stuff, and a tote for the dogs. And then of course a tote to store my ever-growing collection of totes 🙂
