Help decrease your travel carbon footprint by investing in eco-conscious travel gear. Designed with avid travelers in mind, the Suncatcher Carryall Pouch and Tote from Sidney Byron is durable, built for travel and improves with age.


Sidney Byron manufactures these bags with natural jute, a sustainable material that grows quickly and doesn’t require fertilizer or pesticides. Jute relies on natural rainfall instead of irrigation and helps enrich the fertility of the soil during the growth cycle. The material is also recyclable and biodegradable.


This low-carbon and versatile accessory helps upgrade your travel accessories with minimal damage to the environment. The Suncatcher Carryall Pouch and Tote set can be purchased together or separately and both come in four colors: herringbone with black velvet interior; natural with black velvet interior; navy and white with navy terrycloth interior; and yellow and white with yellow terrycloth interior.

The tote features an interior big enough to hold a day’s worth of travel essentials; an exterior strap that can hold up to three stacked hats; one zippered pocket inside; a trolley sleeve to easily attach to your suitcase; drawstring closure to help keep everything safe inside; and a large pom tassel for decoration.


Purchase the matching pouch to keep smaller items, like your phone accessories, makeup, money and personal documents, organized.
