Awesome bag, awesome art – it just doesn’t get any better than this!! Banksy (see more info below!!) has a couple different Balloon Girl works. The original of this particular work was painted on the Palestine-Israel Segregation wall. So typical of Banksy’s work. Although he primarily uses stencils so he can act quickly and anonymously in the dark of night, every brush stroke has been hand painted by me to LOOK like Banksy's stencil work. I think Banksy would approve of my version of his work on this bag!

This is an authentic vintage military bag from Switzerland – how cool is that??? The canvas & leather style is uber cool – they say it was a “bread bag” or “field bag” but who knows. Right now it is YOUR bag with hand painted art. The bag was issued and used by a Swiss soldier so 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!

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

My vintage military bags go through an extensive cleaning, deodorizing and sanitizing process. It’s very time consuming (and really no fun at all!) but I would want nothing less than CLEAN in a bag I purchased. Even with the rigorous cleaning, some may retain a tiny bit of the decades old military musty scent - generally only the ones with leather. Even then it’s very minor, and will go away in time. You can be sure all my bags are as clean as they will ever be!


A little Background…

"Everybody knows Banksy, but nobody knows Banksy."
Banksy is a semi-anonymous English graffiti artist. He is one of the foremost grafitti artists in the world and his artworks are often satirical pieces of art on topics such as politics, culture, and ethics. The message is usually anti-war, anti-capitalist or anti-establishment. Subjects include rats, monkeys, policemen, soldiers, children, and the elderly. His street art usually combines graffiti writing with a distinctive stencilling technique.

There is a lot of public uncertainty about his identity and personal details. It is alleged Banksy "was born in 1974 and raised in Bristol, England. The son of a photocopier technician, he trained as a butcher but became involved in graffiti 1980s."

His work is fascinating, humorous and highly thought provoking. It’s definitely worth checking out!
