Simple beauty for season spanning utility & good looks

Well made in the U.S.A. Built to last.
Finite run small batch. Only one w/ this leather/buckle closure.

Real deal vintage fabrics, not 'vintage look' or repro.

Large messenger, tote, shoulder bag handcrafted from 1970s vintage heavy canvas twill cotton. This is densely woven, American mfg. quality material far superior to modern twill canvas imports. Smooth texture but tough. Deep, muted burnt orange, brick hue so popular in the earthtone 70s.

Double bottom. Strong four-ply adjustable strap. iPad pocket w/ leather/snap closure for secure fit.

Lining: Pure linen flax in dark natural, barley w/ orange brick windowpane plaid. This is heavy upholstery weight, 1970s vintage French linen of the highest quality w/ great slubbed texture & subtle flecks. Interlined w/ lightweight cotton awning canvas for soft structure.

Cognac leather & buckle closure from recycled harness cowhide belt w/ triple stitching detail in primary colors. Repurposed vintage hardware. Sturdy handles from thick sueded leather sourced in the U.S. Flexible, durable & feels great in hand. Old deadstock brass & cotton twill zipper w/ stamped, #d brass tag from one of the defunct rubber shops, Akron, Ohio Tag hand printed on old U.S.A. mfg. cotton twill tape.

16"w x 14"h x 4" gusset; 12"w base
one 7"h x 6.5"w zipper pocket
one 8.5"h x 11"w pocket for iPad, sketchbooks, etc.
divided outer pocket @ 7.5"x8.25" for paperback, maps, more
adjustable strap 1 3/8" x 24.5"-44"

Pre-washed/pre-shrunk fabrics (hot/heavy duty cycle) to ensure integrity, cleanliness & soften.

Conscientious craftsmanship with secure, double/triple stitched seams, zipper and reinforced stress points. No exposed seams to abrade & weaken.

CARE: Quick hand wash is best; do not soak as this dries out leather components. Cold/warm H2O. No bleaching agents. Line dry. Steam iron, if desired. Not ironing enhances crinkled texture.

PAYMENT: Accepted only by credit/debit card via Google Checkout secure processing service OR mailed money order/cashier's check. International buyers pay via Google Checkout. I MANUALLY GENERATE MY GOOGLE CHECKOUT INVOICE after order is placed through Etsy.
