Chronic Babe Tote Bag

The Chronic Babe Tote Bag

Chronic Babe (www.chronicbabe.com) is a website where women who are living with chronic illnesses are encouraged to live their lives as babes instead of patients. Jenni Prokopy started the website in 2006 after dealing with her own illnesses and confronting her own pain before coming to a place where she realized she could be happy, healthy, sexy, and fun-loving. Since I suffer from two different chronic illnesses I’ve been able to gain perspective, support, and comraderie through her website and her counsel. I’m a better person because of her work. And to help support her work, I’ll be donating 50% of the sales from each Chronic Babe bag sold.

Each of these bags is made from high-quality, sweatshop-free, US-milled, woven, and printed cotton fabric. The bags are large enough to carry many daily essentials, but not so large that you’ll end up with a sore shoulder after a day of carrying your life around. The shoulder straps are 1.5” wide and made from high-quality webbing which will be soft enough to wear against your skin or over a delicate shirt. The fabric is lightly water-resistant and the coloring won’t rub off on your skin or clothing. There is a heavy-duty stiffener sewn between the exterior and interior fabrics which lets the bag stand upright without flopping over.

Exterior fabric: Cotton upholstery-grade fabric
Interior fabric: Lightweight yellow-orange cotton print
Height/width/depth (inches): 13w” x 13h” x 4d”
Strap length: 24”, but customizable if requested
Closure: magnetic snap
Pockets: 9“x 6” interior zipper pocket, 5“x10” front slip pocket
