Here's an authentic vintage military bag from Czechoslovakia – how cool is that??? The canvas messenger style is just plain cool.

Choose YOUR OWN ART!! Pick a design you like and convo me for details! This price includes a one color basic design like a silhouette, Kanji Peace or similar level of detail.

Right now it is YOUR bag with hand painted art. Each brushstroke will be happily applied by me! The bag was definitely used by a Czech soldier and he’s broken it in beautifully, but it is in great shape. Through cleaning and sanitizing (I’m kinda funny ‘bout these things!) I learned this is amazingly strong fabric and construction that should last forever. That’s great because my hand painting does too!

The Bag… It's a rare one and difficult to find.

________________________________________________


• Messenger style with a short/small flap and two button closure – cool crossed sword buttons!
• 44” adjustable cotton webbing strap – very comfy and long enough for cross body
• Uber nifty waist strap (see pic) that secures the bag around your waist too - great for traveling to prevent theft! You could also use it to hold your car keys.
• Large interior compartment with 2 sleeves that could hold water bottles. Teeny tiny pocket to hold teeny tiny things - like coins or chiclets!
• Extremely sturdy cotton canvas (krypton-like sturdy!) This bag is stamped mid-70's and will surely outlast you!
• Belt loops on the back – should you want to put it on your belt. And hook the waist strap. And put the strap over your shoulder. You definitely won’t be losing this bag!
• An Ipad or netbook will fit!




. . . . . . . .CLEAN BAGS for your Carrying Pleasure . . . . . . . .

My vintage military bags have been thoroughly cleaned, sanitized and deodorized. I even press them so they look nice! It’s very time consuming (and really no fun at all!) but I would want nothing less than CLEAN in a bag I purchased. Yes, I am a geek about these bags! But with any vintage military...there may be an ever so tiny scent - generally ones with leather (minor, and it will go away with time.) Most find it negligible or nonexistent and are amazed at how wonderfully clean my military bags are!!

Frequently asked questions about clpstudio

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.
