This is a solid, well-made bag that I will get a lot of use out of, and the seller customized the handles for me which was awesome. The color was not quite what I expected though. I ordered turquoise and got something very blue. I was expecting the more muted blue-green color I have seen in other listings in this shop. It would be helpful for the shop to provide a color choice chart with their listings to avoid confusion.

About

Waxed Canvas Bags and Wallets. Hand-Waxed in our MA Studio.

Welcome! No mass production here! Each is handmade by the designer in small batches. Kerri Ann Handmade handcrafts bags and wallets that offer beautifully simple design. We take care to preserve the art of handmade, small business, and personal relationships.

About the Waxing Process:
Each piece is hand-waxed using a special blend of 100% pure beeswax and lanolin in our Massachusetts studio. The wax is heated, applied and ironed into the fibers of the canvas. Once cured the canvas is sewn into bags and wallets. The wax offers a water resistant finish, ease of cleaning, and wears like leather. Visit our website to watch video from inside the studio to learn more about the process. http://kerriannhandmade.com

About the Designer:
In 2003, the year I got married, my parents gave me a sewing machine as a gift. I laughed in their face and asked to exchange it for cash. It sat in my closet until 2006, the year my daughter was born. I needed to replace my purse with something small that I could throw in the diaper bag. I could not find anything in store or online at that time. I decided to make it myself. I broke out the sewing machine and taught myself to sew!

After years of hard work and dedication, I am happy to say, thanks to my wonderful customers, that I have "quit my day job" and am able to stay at home with my two wonderful children, Kaelyn, age 8, and Brennan, age 5. I have a wonderful and supportive husband. We live south of Boston MA.

Additional policies and FAQs
Q: What is Hand-Waxed Canvas?

A: Hand-Waxed canvas is heavy duty canvas waxed with 100% pure beeswax. We melt the wax and brush into the fibers of the canvas. Waxed canvas bags are water resistant and will naturally become more pliable with use leaving a light color variation and visual texture throughout the bag, making each one unique.

Q: How do I care for my waxed canvas bag?

A: Waxed canvas can not be machine washed or dry cleaned. We recommend spot cleaning with mild detergent (we love Dawn) and water.

Q: Will my cell phone fit your wallets?

A: Most likely. We keep up on the newest phones on the market and respond accordingly with our designs.

If you think your phone will not fit, contact me I will check the tech specs according to the manufacturer for fit. If your phone will not fit our standard design we may be able to accommodate.

Q: How long will it take for my order to be completed?

A: Most items are made to order as we offer variations. The production time is noted with each listing.

Q: How will my order be shipped?

A: USPS First Class Mail with Delivery Confirmation.

Q: Do you accept custom orders?

A: Maybe. We would love to offer you your perfect bag or wallet. During times of heavy production we may not be able to accommodate a custom order. Convo me with your request and I will get back to you shortly.
