Fika is a Swedish word, meaning ‘to have coffee’.  The classic clean lines of this mid-sized tote give a nod to my Scandinavian heritage.  The Fika Tote has plenty of features you’ll love, like front pockets, a back lapped zipper pocket, recessed zipper closure and padded pockets.  Take this tote on your next visit with friends!

Special features:
  • Two front pockets for things you need to keep close at hand
  • Back lapped zippered pocket
  • Optional recessed zipper (it’s optional, but I know you’ll love it!)
  • Makes a great work or student bag, padded interior pockets can accommodate most laptop sizes.Approx. Finished Dimensions: 17” wide, 15” tall, 5” deep
