Tote&Carry: The New Black

The New York Times has written about the importance of black-owned companies pooling together to create strength in the marketplace. It is believed that acknowledging black-owned businesses supports families, employees, and business owners, as well as attracts community investors and a strong morale. Bloomberg recently reported that “top retailers finally see the value of black-owned brands,” while Target says now it will hire more black-owned companies, spending 2 billion dollars on the business community by 2025.

Top brand sites have rewarded Tote&Carry by including them in articles that mostly focus on luxury travel bags and the best of Black-Owned Brands. This includes, The Zoe Report, Travel+Leisure, Cosmopolitan, Vogue, and Elle magazine.

The first black cast mate of Bravo’s megahit, Real Housewives of Orange Country, NOELLA BERGENER, calls herself a big fan of the carry-on luggage line; Singer LA NEGRA wrote the company to tell them she is “the biggest fan of the line.”

Tote&Carry matching travel bags were seen on the STARZ set of the new POWER franchise POWER BOOK IV: Force. A video was sent to the company of their olive and chocolate Snakeskin Duffel+backpack Sets, on stage.

The biggest in the biz are manbag-toting stars that must always travel in style: A$AP Rocky, Snoop Dogg, Big Sean, Kanye West, Usher, Seal and Lil Uzi all have been seen toting and carrying bags for men. Luxury Luggage is (on) FIRE!

Tote&Carry co-founder/designer Tony “Stitch” Dennis had a dream of creating eco-friendly, cruelty-free unisex luxurious and affordable luggage. The popular designer, known to his clients as “The Stitch Doctor,” first items were made on a worn-out sewing machine in his basement in ‘92. Now with more than 30 years of experience and a strong background full of humble beginnings, Dennis utilizes the brand to express art through fashion by representing the African American community whose identity has been historically stolen. (Hollywood columnist Flo Anthony wrote up Tote&Carry’s co-founder in her weekly column for the cover of The Philadelphia Sun.)

Further cementing his work in the industry, Tony Dennis re-invented himself and became a highly sought-after Designer and Tailor. He has since worked with GQ Magazine, Netflix, Tyler Perry Studios, BYU TV and Swirl Network TV. Stitch has also worked with stars and professional athletes including Shaquille O'Neal, Michael B. Jordan, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Big Ben Roethlisberger, Country music award host Jeff Foxworthy Vivica A. Fox, Young Jeezy, Future, Rick Ross, Waka Flocka, Keyshia Cole, Jada Pinkett Smith, Janet Jackson and producer Drumma Boy. Dennis has also teamed up with music labels Epic and Motown Records.
Tote&Carry will always offer luxuriously affordable travel-wear handcrafted in the USA. Bold and creative, Tote&Carry's sleek styles will always blend bold, lush artistic textures. Finally, the minority-owned company vows to always manufacture cruelty-free, durable vegan-wear, designed in America, and whose story represents the still-enduring American dream.  (Media contact: # # #
