Brand Story

Kaan emerged as a personal creative project between two design friends seeking an uncomplicated go-to bag that brings us around the city and beyond. An easy alternative that is non-leather, less technical, and simply timeless. After testing many protos we developed the perfect oversized size. A bag for the week and into the weekend, the Bucket Tote effortlessly simplifies the day-to-day, leaving more time to focus on the things that matter.


We aim to elevate our lives by making everyday look and feel effortless. We believe in conscious consumerism by designing with longevity and timelessness in mind. Using durable and easy-to-clean materials, we hope to offer long-term solutions for our daily routine.

Our Product

Durable, Easy-to-Clean, Versatile, Functional

Canvas has an excellent strength-to-weight ratio making it durable, lightweight, and easy-to-clean. Additionally our waterproof canvas resist signs of wear, further increasing the product lifespan.

The simple shape allows for maximum space, fitting everything from a water bottle, laptop, gym clothes, beach towel, groceries, to spontaneous purchases. Our Bucket Tote is designed to keep us equipped and ready to handle our needs any day of the week.

"It's such a beautiful design!! Just did a grocery shop after the beach too and it feels so nice on your shoulder with a heavy bag of produce. I love!"

"It's such a smart shape bc it's narrow but long. So I can fit all my normal purse things plus my water bottle fits nicely. The strap is thick so it's comfy on my shoulders even if I put more stuff in it."
