Here is the first bag of 2015. It is a great everyday bag for work, travel and leisure and is part of a series of waxed canvas and leather that I have made over the last couple of years. These bags are durable and age beautifully. The waxed canvas is waterproof and wipes clean with a damp cloth. This one is 12.5″ wide, 14″ tall and 6″ deep with an adjustable leather strap and a wide leather base. It is lined in crisp blue and white striped denim. There is a large exterior pocket and inside zip and slip pockets as well as a leather phone pocket.
When I was in Nairobi in February I found some heavy duty waxed canvas and I am ready to start some new bags to see how they go.
I enjoy your web site and the creative work that you are doing. I really like the waxed canvas shoulder bag and would love to purchase one if that is possible. Pam
Thanks for coming to the bog and commenting. I am very happy to hear you like Ruth’s chair seats. They will be great once they are backed in Kenyan cotton.
I have enough material to make another waxed canvas bag like the one in this post. I will be in touch.
