The Mix Tape is a glorious thing! It's something that has probably touched most - either by making one or receiving one as a gift. One essayist has even called the personal Mix Tape "the most widely practiced American art form." It is truly artistic to carefully choose and arrange the songs that evoke a certain feeling or celebrate a special time. Granted, now most are on CD’s or MP3 players, but they’re still called the old fashioned Mix Tape. (Kinda like how we still call a CD an album.) They’re wonderful, individualized pieces of art that and anyone can create. They’re glorious!

And so is this bag! It’s a vintage Czech Military bag with date stamps between the 50's and 60's. This canvas messenger style is just plain cool – they say it was a bread bag. But now it is YOUR bag with a hand painted MixTape on it. Each brushstroke was happily applied by me! The bag was used by a Czech 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!

NOTE: These bags will generally have a stamped or handwritten number somewhere on the outside of the bag. It may affect placement of art!

The Bag…It's awesome!

BAG SIZE____________

~ 11h x 9.25w x 3.5d

~ 42" long adjustable shoulder strap - can be worn cross body or on the shoulder
~ 3 compartments to keep all your stuff in order – there are dividers that go to, but aren’t attached at the bottom.
~ Nifty small pocket with a snap closure – great for a phone, keys, other things that might get lost at the bottom.
~ Wooden toggles for closure, but the flap stays closed quite well on its own.
~ Man Bag! Man Satchel! But women like them too!
~ Ideal for an Ipad as one of the compartments is sized perfectly! Bonus! The book in the inside pic measures 9.5 x 8 x 1, just a smidge bigger than an I pad. This bag is an awesome way to traipse around with your Ipad – you’ll look so cool!
~ 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.

. . . . . . . .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!

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.
