The Dep Tote: Pack Your Bags, See The World

The Dep Tote: Pack Your Bags, See The World

Remember the gal on the homepage with the Vietnam 5 Dep Tote and rad, handmade Kiboots (we've written about Kiboots before)? And our "Pack Your Bags, See The World" t-shirt model? Yep, that's Hennessy. Not only has she modeled for us, but she's also a close friend of the Tribe and likes to rock not one but two Ethnotek bags in her everyday - and not so-everyday - adventures: the Indonesia 7 Dep Tote (she was a lucky gal to snag the only one we made!) and the Ghana 16 Raja Pack.

The Tribe Speaks: Tribe Member Kayt on the Dep Tote

They built forts and dreamed up mysterious make-believe lands in the shrub and woods behind the soccer fields when they were just six years old. The story goes that Jake (Founder and Design Shaman) and Kayt grew up together and remained friends, each growing in their creative pursuits - Kayt as a graphic designer and business owner extraordinaire and Jake as a bag designer and business owner extraordinaire - and all the while, Kayt has followed Jake's journey with Ethnotek and vice-versa.
