Think texture and content
But don't forget additional alternatives, like this tote made by TamDoll, from a recycled wool Pendleton scarf
(her etsy shop)
The scarf is actually the back of the tote.
The front is cotton with leather trim
"The handle of this tote was cut from the waistband of a felted sweater and embroidered to coordinate with the bag. The handle will stretch when used so I made sure the stitching will stretch with it. This was fun to make."
