Taaluma means 'culture' in the Swahili language. After all, that's what Taaluma Totes are all about. They remind us there's an awesome world out there--filled with awesome cultures, people, and places--who can all be connected through a backpack.
Absolutely! There is a passport pocket inside the tote for your travel convenience.
Although orders typically ship the day they are placed, we are currently transitioning warehouses and all orders are backordered until March 26. Shipping time in transit is calculated at checkout based on your zip code.
Of course! Just send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org letting us know, and we'll take it from there :)
Tote-ally! We'll cover the extra shipping, too (in the US). Swap or return any unused tote—no questions asked. Just email email@example.com for a free shipping label!

Absolutely! Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can get some more Taaluma info cards packed up and headed your way.
Sorry to say it, but when they’re sold out they’re gone for good! We travel far and wide to find the wackiest fabrics this world has to offer, but this DOES mean that we often can't find that same fabric ever again. So if you’re eyeing down a limited edition tote, snatch it up while you can!
Yep! We recommend testing your detergent/cleaner on a hidden part of your backpack first though--just to make sure it doesn't discolor. If it looks good, spot-clean any small stains, air dry it, and you'll be totin' again in no time.
Yes. Totes measure about 18" x 12" x 5", and easily fit most laptops measuring 15" or less. So whether you are using a tote for travel, class, or a weekend getaway, Taaluma Totes have your back!
Yes! We microloan 20% of profits from every tote. Occasionally, if there are no microloans open in a certain country, we fund a microloan in a neighboring country instead.
The totes from Shark Tank were limited edition fabrics that have all been snatched up!
To keep totes more affordable, we only sell direct to customers.
We spend a good portion of our time overseas in search of the world's most colorful fabrics, but we are always available through email, so shoot us an email at email@example.com with any questions/comments!
