Category : CUSTOM BAGS · by Jun 29th, 2017

This is a custom Courier Bag for Josh in Bayside, New York. Josh contacted me, said he likes the textures of my bags and asked if I have a messenger bag. Even though the Courier Bag has not yet officially been released (it will in July), I showed Josh one that I made for my husband in midnight blue and grey. He liked it, but wanted the closure to be more simple, like the Field Bag


These are custom colours that Josh chose. He initially thought about having it all black, but saw that I made a few custom bags previously with black and brown leather. It really makes the colours stand out.


Italian vegetable tanned leather. Solid and antique brass hardware throughout the bag.


The strap is adjustable with a solid brass buckle.


The Courier Bag that I will be releasing next month fits a 13″ MacBook Air. However, Josh was looking for a bag for his 15″ MacBook Pro, so I made a larger size for him.


The back of the bag has 2 slip pockets for belongings you have to get quickly.


The interior of the bag comes with 4 pockets: 2 water bottle and 2 large pockets. Josh also needed a zippered pocket for his work pass and secured belongings. I made him one on the back interior of the bag, so it’s easy for him to reach in to get it.



If you’re looking for a messenger bag, the Courier Bag will be in the shop in the next week or so. If you have any questions, please email me at cathy@moderncoup.com or through my Etsy Shop.
