I've deemed this the "World's Best Man Bag" for many reasons. It's just cool, and so are men. It will never be considered a purse or even a man purse. It's far too rugged and manly looking for anyone, ever, to question it's carrying or carrier. It's even got a bit of rust on the hardware and canvas, a purse would never have that! It's comprised of wonderful heavyweight khaki/gray canvas and brown leather. Swedish soldiers must have been manly men!

I've heard it's from WWII, but I've yet to confirm that in some old on-line military museum, so I surely won't spew it as fact. It does have the traditional Swedish crown stamped on the inside of the flap. This brown leather version is a bit more rare than its counterpart with gray leather the color of the bag. It's rugged, between 40 - 60 years old, and is obviously built to last.

Absolutely clean and the leather is conditioned(repeatedly!) If he's going to use it for a Dad/baby bag - it's clean enough for a baby's diaper!

. . . . . . . .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.
