Shop Announcement:

⭐PLEASE NOTE. I have extended my shipping times to 7 days. I still aim to ship domestic items within 3 working days but want to minimise trips to the post office for international/upgraded orders. My post office days are Tuesday and Friday. Thank you for understanding! I also have several items in clearance at the moment as I'm thinning out my lines. If you like something, grab it while you can as it might not return!⭐

Welcome to Francesca's Words. I specialise in weird, sarcastic and quirky stationery, accessories and art.

Please note longer order times mean I have to order from my suppliers. Products are listed by theme, e.g. feminist prints in 'Civil Writes' and mythology Valentine's in 'Mythology Mayhem'. Please ask if you have any questions!

Funny Cotton Tote Bag for Students, Teachers, Bookworms. Back to School Gift

Funny Cotton Tote Bag for Students, Teachers, Bookworms. Back to School Gift
£4.80 3 Available
Love this


The perfect bibliophile accessory, these bags are a great gift for students starting a new term at school, for teachers at the end of the year or as a Secret Santa or stocking filler for your favourite student or bookworm... Or treat yourself!

They're made of natural cotton and professionally screen printed. The bag measures 38x43 cm, while the handles are approximately 70cm long. One bag weighs approximately 80g.

Each bag can fit several large textbooks plus notebooks, pens and snacks. I checked.

Bag Care: please note that washing your bag in a machine isn't recommended as it could shrink! It's because the cotton is natural and has not been dyed or bleached. Clean it gently, using a sponge.

The design covers one side of your tote bag; my stamp is on the other side. My supplier's tag is sewn into an inside seam, very discreetly. Each bag has a unique, natural, almost fleckled finish (see the photos). There may be the odd loose thread or some 'fluff' on your tote.

Note actual print colour may vary from monitor to monitor.

I've had the design in my head since I was at school in 2012/2013 and lugged around way too many heavy textbooks. I got my act together and designed it properly in 2017!
