Category : STUDIO UPDATES · by Jul 14th, 2017

I finally got the Courier Bags in the shop this week. It’s now available in this midnight blue and charcoal grey combination or charcoal grey and brown.

This bag came about because 3 years ago, my husband wanted a messenger bag. He wanted to use it for work and as a diaper bag (Pax was 3 and Nol was a newborn then.) I made him a custom one that he used for years. That was version 1.0 (you can see it here). Along the way, I started appreciating that bag more and more. The wax canvas was really durable and the leather aged beautifully.

For the past few months, I’ve been working on adjustments and improvements for this bag. I feel that it is now a worthy bag to sell.

 

The lightly waxed canvas creates a water resistant exterior. The Italian vegetable tanned leather gets even better with wear. It gets a little darker brown and remains durable, but softer against the body.

 

The Courier Bag also comes in this charcoal grey  and brown combination.

 

The back of the bag has 2 slip pockets. An iPad mini fits in the pocket. It makes keys and other items easy to access.

 

The inside of the bag has 4 pockets. 2 wide water bottle size and 2 large pockets. This is especially helpful if you plan on using it as a diaper bag. Organization is key.

 

The bag has solid and antique brass hardware throughout.
