VIVAIA started as a women’s shoe brand competing directly with Rothy’s.

VIVAIA turns used water bottles into footwear. In 2020 they began to produce handbags and eventually apparel with the continued focus on sustainability.

VIVAIA Zahara Tote Bag Review

I received the Zahara tote bag to review in this post. When I opened my package, I noticed the bag was super lightweight (only 410 grams or 14.5 ounces) and the color was a perfect neutral cream. There three types of weaving methods used to create the tote. It looks simple yet stunning!

I immediately took it with me around town running errands and I fell in love! It matched my VIVAIA Zoe booties perfectly. I got tons of compliments and it was a great contrast to how dreary the Seattle weather is during Wintertime.

Below we’ll go through the pros and cons of VIVAIA’s tote bags.


  • Affordable price point! The bags cost only $79. You can use code SCHIMIGGY to save an additional 18% off!
  • Very durable materials. The bag can withstand a lot of wear and tear. 
  • Made from used water bottles. Each bag is made from 6 used water bottles!
  • Large capacity – The Zahara bag has a 10 Liter or 2.6 Gallon capacity. It can hold your daily essentials and more.
  • Comes in different colors. They released new colors recently and I want them all!
  • Machine washable – The bags are very easy to care for. Just throw it in the washer on cold and hang dry. Avoid drying in direct sunlight as the head can shrink the fibers of the bag.
  • Very spacious! The bags hold a lot. I carry my essentials in there and still have enough room to use it as a shopping bag or laptop bag.


  • Unnecessary plastic packaging – Their products are shipped from China and their shipping partner wraps their products in plastic packaging before it arrives at my doorstep in Seattle, Washington, USA.
  • The knitted design allows small particles (such as sand) to enter the bag. I would not recommend it for a beach vacation. One good thing about this design is that you can easily shake sand and dirt off of your tote bag.
