Carry on. 

Utilitarian by design yet polished in execution, our soft and sturdy Sonoma Bag packs a deceivingly large amount of gear. Handcrafted with purpose from medium-weight organic canvas and lined with organic cotton sheeting, our bespoke bag is an everyday essential. The Sonoma Bag features a stylish curve at the base, wide straps for comfortable support, two easy-reach external pockets, and a zip-top main compartment with metal zipper and pull finished in aged brass.


Made of equal parts cotton and relentless determination.

Crafted exclusively for Olive+Comet, the Sonoma Bag is handmade by the women of Joyya, our fair trade partner in Kolkata, West Bengal. Through its unwavering commitment to banish extreme poverty and human trafficking within local communities, Joyya empowers at-risk populations by providing choices for healthy, meaningful employment—spreading hope and economic opportunity in the process.

We’re proud of this bag, and all that it stands for. It does more than carry what you put inside—it carries people forward.

Great bag

I won this bag in the 1% for the planet auction and I love it! It's sturdy and has lots of pockets. I appreciate companies that are 1% members and I try to support them whenever possible. I hope you will be making more items in the future because I would be happy to buy other things from you!

My favorite every day bag!

Worth every penny! I have had this bag for two weeks and I have used it every day! It is lightweight, but the straps are thick and hold a lot of weight. The straps don’t slip off of my shoulders either! The neutral colors matches with any outfit. I love that it is organic cotton and it feels very soft against my skin. Also, neat fact that the bag is named after a very cool rescue dog :)

I appreciate the two deep pockets on the outside. I wish the inside had pockets! However, the bag itself is deep and wide enough to hold all of my things. It holds my 16” MacBook comfortably with plenty of room to spare. The zipper is smooth and the bag is easy to spot clean.

I love the company’s transparency and sustainable practices! Support this small business and buy this bag!

For sure one of my favorite purchases this year

At first I was taken aback by the steep price tag, but I bit the bullet after learning about O+C's commitment to sustainability and community.

Ever since I received this tote bag in the mail, I've been wearing it every day. I find myself gravitating to this one the most over my other bags (and I have a lot). I can say that it was worth every single penny! It's sturdy, spacious, and comfortable. The front pockets are what make this bag the IT bag for me -- so convenient and they help my scatterbrained self stay organized.

Finally a bag that looks good and makes me feel good.

Love this bag. Inspiring to see the thought and effort put into this and wish I had more products like it at home. A go-to for our beach gear and toys. Thank you!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

We don’t recommend machine washing. The spin cycle can stretch & warp the bag, and hot water can shrink it.

We suggest spot cleaning with a stain remover (test an area first & follow the manufacturer’s directions). Or, you can use baking soda mixed with a bit of warm water (create a paste, apply it to the stain and let it sit for 5–10 minutes—then, wipe it off.

If your bag needs more than spot cleaning, hand wash it with mild soap & lukewarm water. Scrub gently to avoid damaging the cotton fibers. Hang the bag to dry.
