SKN Design, an up-and-coming design company, has added organic cotton reusable totes to its line of reusable shopping bags, uniting sustainability and style for today's shoppers. SKN (pronounced "skin") reusable organic bags are manufactured in the U.S. from 100 percent certified organic American-grown cotton.

SKN organic and traditional cotton totes (12" x 16"x 6") are available in five designs - Carrot, Blueberry, Tomato, Lemon and Asparagus. The bags hold up to 40 lbs. and stand open for easy packing. Shoppers can fold bags flat like a traditional paper sack, and they are machine-washable for easy upkeep. The organic, U.S. cotton is grown without harmful chemicals, causing minimal disruption to the environment.

"Functionality, innovative design and a modern aesthetic were all first considerations when designing these totes," said Jennifer Stevenson, chief operating officer and lead designer of SKN Design. "For our organic line, we wanted to work with products made from organic farms in the U.S. because it's important to support our local economy and community."

About SKN Design

SKN Design was co-founded by Christopher DeGregorio and Jennifer Stevenson as a personal and home accessory design company that integrates sustainability into its fresh creations. SKN reusable shopping totes are currently available in designer boutiques, including Fred Segal in Los Angeles and Mint in Westhampton Beach, N.Y., as well as directly on SKN's Web site at http://www.getskn.com. After their appearance in NY's Fall 2008 Fashion Week, Style.com named SKN's tote the "Most Useful." SKN works with the organization American Forests to plant a tree on their customers' behalf for every order placed. Each SKN reusable bag saves the environment from the waste of about 330 plastic bags each year, and shoppers wearing the bags look damn good doing it!

About SKN Organic Cotton Bags

SKN's organic bags are made from cotton certified by the New Mexico Organic Commodity Commission (NMOCC), a USDA National Organic Program (NOP) accredited organization. The organic cotton is grown without the use of pesticides, harmful chemicals or non-organic agricultural substances. These standards also require the land used to produce this cotton be left in as good a condition, or better, than before the harvest - including soil and water quality.
