A Totally Cool Tote

What happens when a fashion stylist and a cartographer come together to share their passions for travel, maps and design? They create Maptote, simple cotton totes silk-screened with fun schematic maps of various cities featuring neighborhoods, city icons and landmarks. The Las Vegas Tote includes symbols for Strip locales in addition to other points of interest, such as Red Rock Canyon and Hoover Dam. The duo (Rachel Rheingold and Michael Berick) have also added many other products to their line: wine totes, note cards, zip pouches and onesies. $17, Maptote.com.
