It’s been 31 years since Hayao Miyazaki‘s acclaimed animation My Neighbor Totoro first graced the big screens and appreciation for the film seems to only grow bigger with age. Studio Ghibli has just announced a collaboration with L.L. Bean, the American outdoor goods company that invented the tote bag, for a slew of Totoro totes.

L.L. Bean is credited for making the world’s first tote bag (originally made for carrying ice) as part of its Boat and Tote line, dating all the way back to 1944. Made from high oz canvas, the signature silhouette comes with reinforced handles that extend all the way down to its double-layered base.

This collaboration encompasses two designs, emblazoned with graphics of either the Cat Bus or forest spirit Totoro at the upper center front of the bags. Made in USA, each style is available in green and navy, accented with bold colors along the handles and base. Both panels come with contrasting white top-stitching while “L.L. Bean” and “Studio Ghibli” branding is placed on the inside, keeping the exteriors of the classic silhouette clean and minimal.

The Studio Ghibli x L.L. Bean Totoro Tote Bags will be available on October 26 at gbl.tokyo for $120 USD.

Elsewhere, Balenciaga has crafted a chain necklace celebrating the letter “B.”
