A spot of tea Mum? Chalk it up to my being American, but I auto think British and tea. I have visited and tea’d myself silly at the most improper times (per British standards) and loved it! It is something so magically British we can only hope to capture. When I saw this pistol belt bag I immediately thought of the UK. Surely there’s a place or pocket in this bag to stash some tea! Then I hear the Queen was getting an Ipad… I was thinking she just might need a pistol belt bag to store her Ipad and tea! She can text me now ;) It’s all cool!

For the rest of us…They call this a pistol belt bag – I just call it crazy chic! It’s crafted in a vintage military style, but absolutely brand new. I thought the bag was a perfect pairing for a painted Union Jack with just a bit of grunge and a lot of vintage. I’m loving the look!

The black cotton canvas bag has the “pistol belt” with a double line of grommets completely around the top for that chic military look. The long strap (detachable and adjustable!) continues that look with a single line of grommets.

The bag also features:

• Outside front sleeve pocket
• Outside back zipper pocket
• Inside sleeve pocket
• Large main compartment
• Two short 18”straps
• 44” adjustable strap, detachable too!
• 12.5” w x 10” h x 2.25”d
• Silvertone hardware - lots of it!
• It will hold the Queen's Ipad - and yours as well!

I use professional grade Acrylic Leather Paint that has a "flex additive" to prevent cracking and peeling. Each coat takes 24 hours to "cure," so although very time consuming, I usually have many different purses and shoes going at the same time.

In addition, each item is thoroughly prepped to accept the paint. I have learned through years of trial and error that varying leathers, suedes and fabrics take different processes. If soiled, you can simply wipe the art clean with a damp cloth. Never a worry! It’s simply meant to be enjoyed.

Dimensions for all bags are listed. If you're still not sure, please send me the dimensions of your computer and I'll check it out for you.
Any vintage bag can be hand washed in mild soap and line dried. Hand washing will not affect the art - the paint is permanent. It will also not affect leather trims on vintage bags. The only exceptions would be a few of the newer styles like the vertical messenger with a hard backerboard in it or the new laptop bags with leather trims.
It depends on the time of year with my painting schedule , but generally no more than 3 - 5 additional days.
If it's of similar detail and one color like others in my shop it'll vary between $5 - $10. If it's more detail and additional colors I can provide you with a quote.
This is the beauty of hand painting! Most all of the art can be painted on about any bag, unless there is a size limitation. You choose your bag and you choose your art!
More than likely not. Each style of bag is exactly the same configuration. It may vary slightly in shade or wear/storage marks on vintage bags. I have chosen to do this to keep costs at a reasonable price. If I were to take photos of each bag, by the time I color correct, crop, and edit photos there would be an increase of approximately $10 per bag. If there is something markedly different in the bag I will either note that or I will do a separate listing.
