L.L. Bean, New England’s venerable outdoor haberdasher, has unveiled a special tote bag fashioned from Fenway Park tarp that will benefit the One Fund Boston, which was established to assist victims and families affected by the tragic events at the Boston Marathon.
According to L.L. Bean, the One Fund Boston Tote is made from the rain-delay tarp used to protect Fenway during the park’s 100th anniversary in 2012. This limited edition version of the company’s signature tote celebrates the spirit of Boston and its people, with 100 percent of the profits going to the One Fund Boston, Maine-based L.L. Bean said.
Each tote features a patch with the signature blue and yellow the One Fund Boston logo.
Only 3,500 totes have been produced, and they will be available starting at 9:00 a.m. Friday, L.L. Bean said. The totes will be for sale at select retail stores including the flagship L.L.Bean store in Freeport, Maine, as well as the Massachusetts L.L.Bean stores in Burlington, Dedham, and Mansfield. The retail price is $49.
