The idea for these bags came from seeing the multitude of cyclists riding around with their bags slug across their backs and thinking that there had to be a better alternative to those often drab, grey/black, canvas bags. Why not something more elegantly "grungie",something you'd perhaps see on the backs of cyclists in Europe. The inspiration for my bags came from seeing a mail carrier in a foreign film...Those bags were plan leather pouches, slug across the chest,sitting at the hip. I wanted to reproduce that simplicity.No buckles, zippers or rings,just a neat pouch with a flap opening in interesting parings of colors and patterns.These bags sit comfortably over the shoulder and across the chest,resting on the hip. I did not want to feel constrained by the bag but wanted it to feel part of the body, something you could wear all day without really noticing it. I think the bags come off looking "elegant" but yet very much rustic in their construction,with thread knottings very visible and reinforcement mini-patches where I think the bag would most certainly take the most wear.
Large bag measures approx. 17 1/4"wide x 14 1/2"high.
Smaller size measures approx. 13" wide x11" high. The measurement from where the strap meets the bag across the chest and back is approx 39". Can be altered if desired.

***Fabric linings shown in photos are "just possibilities". MANY more choices are available upon request.
