The Mail Bag
A cross body design to be worn over one shoulder, inspired by postman bags. With a stirrup leather shoulder strap, solid brass conway loop buckles and wide shoulder pad for extra comfort. It has a simple twin buckle front fastening, with solid brass whole roller buckles designed to stay firmly secure. Each leather closure is hand saddle stitched to the bag and backed with leather internally for durability, with a natural coloured waxed linen thread. The base of the bag features leather straps riveted to the base to protect and add extra structure. A simple but timeless design made from truly robust materials.
Pictured is the British army olive drab canvas, with dark brown coloured oak bark tanned leather.
The leather used is full grain meaning scars, stretch marks and blemishes are uncorrected and present giving a characterful and natural finish. Because of this, no two items are ever the same, each unique and completely one of a kind.
Available in our three standard 24oz cotton colour options Natural Loomstate/Natural Russet leather, Moss Green/ Dark Brown leather and Black/Black leather.
Also available in our two standard 22oz Flax colour options Natural Loomstate/Dark Brown and Olive Drab/ Dark Brown leather.
