Purple Ribbon Fabric Tote Bag / Shopping Bag by Zippityduda

Let's face it: Cancer sucks. But if you or someone you love is battling cancer and need to take things with to chemo or radiation, then this pretty bag will help hold all your goodies. Purple ribbons are symbolic of general cancer awareness so this would be good for any warrior spirit!

Exterior has this beautiful and inspirational purple swirl and ribbon fabric; interior is a light purple; handles are black.

Bags measure a generous 12w x 13h x 8d inches; they have a box pleat on the bottom, so you can easily fit a three or four cereal boxes in with room to spare. They're constructed so the handles are sewn into the seams, which makes them very sturdy.

A wonderful gift for someone you know who's fighting cancer, or carry it yourself as a tribute to the incredible fight you've seen in others.
