Mr. Whiskers is ready for his closeup. Carry a tribute to your cat or canine companion on a walk through the park or trip to fetch treats from the farmers market with this paw-sitively adorable carryall by Amitie Tofanelli. Send in a snapshot of your beloved pet, and the artist will print their likeness along with their name on a sturdy cotton twill tote. Handmade in California.

Product Features

  • A truly 100% unique and artistically designed illustration of your pet.
  • Sturdy 10 oz. cotton twill fabric.
  • 16.5"h x 15.5"w x 7"d - generous dimensions.
  • 21" straps allow for a comfortable fit, and easy access to contents inside the tote bag.
  • A carrying capacity of 35 lb's.
  • Washing machine and dryer safe.


  • HOW TO CHOOSE AND SUBMIT THE PERFECT PHOTO:


    PLEASE SUBMIT A GOOD QUALITY PHOTO THAT IS AT LEAST 800 PIXELS BY 800 PIXELS

    Select the best photo that fits your pet's personality, and feel free to submit that photo.
    When choosing or taking a photo, make sure it is a large size and that it is not out of focus.
    Lighting is also very important; if you take a photo with the flash on, it tends to flatten your image. Natural lighting is always best if you face your pets towards the light source, and it shows off your pet's true colors.
    Get on your pet's eye level.
    Many people will take a photo of their dog or cat while standing above them. Take a seat or kneel down to their level.
    Probably the most important detail is your pet's eyes.
    If they are glowing (from the flash) or are dark from shadows, we can only guess are what your pet's eyes look like. The eyes are what really bring your pet's portrait to life, so try to get at least one good snapshot of them.

    Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

    Amitie Tofanelli has always loved illustrating and creating art. Her family, including her professional artist uncle, encouraged and contributed to her passion by exposing her to many different styles and techniques. She fell in love with Japanese manga as a teenager, and the influence comes through today in her pseudo-realistic images with a comic book playfulness. "My goal is always for my art to cause feelings of joy and love to come forward in those enjoying my artwork," she says.

    I'll keep this relatively short....
    The tote that was shipped to my Mother (featuring her dog) looks about as far away from the examples and the description given for this product as I could imagine....short of having the correct animal (see attached image). Somebody simply took the photo, hacked in an approximate 'oval' and ironed it onto the bag.

    To me...it looks as if the artist farmed the production of this out (I don't know)....but, it's certainly not the 'hands on' artistic vision that we are presented in the text.

    uncommongoods is working on a reissue.....and I'm hoping that she receives a product that is fully representative of the item's description and worth of the reviews that seem to be overwhelmingly ecstatic here.

    It was sooooo embarrassing to have her receive this as a gift...given what I thought she would be getting. I'll be more than happy to delete/revise/ammend this review if the second piece represents what I thought was purchasing (and what you all seemed to have received).

      My daughter and son-in-law absolutely love their rescue dog, Mango, and so do we. She is sweet, tough, adorable, of highly indeterminate parentage and oddly proportioned. Nevertheless, the portrait is a dead ringer for her! Bravo to the artist!

          Great bag. I think it's really important to listen to the suggestions from the seller about a quality photo. I'm a hobbyist photographer and submitted a high resolution image of what is (in my opinion at least) a great portrait shot of our dog. Giving the artist that high level of detail will translate into a very appealing item, which is what I got! The bag is nice, and the details and colors of the image are almost perfect; it is an unmistakable image of our dog.

              This time the tote turned out so much better than the last tote I purchased. The dog picture and name was placed perfectly and the picture did not look printed/pasted on. It was absolutely perfect and beautiful!

                  I am so excited to give this gift to my mom. When I opened the package I was amazed at how well the artist captured my mother's cat's image. I have made this my go to Christmas gift, secretly gathering pictures of my friend's pets and ordering a tote for them. What better way to give a personal, yet practical gift, that any pet owner will cherish? (I even had one made for myself too!)

                    I ordered for my daughter's birthday. Her cat is a Siamese and his distinguishing features are his bright blue eyes which were obvious in both pictures I sent. His eyes are brown on the bag -- so it doesn't look like him. Very disappointed. Not even sure I will give it to her.
