Forestbound — Carryall No. 3 (SOLD)
No wonder its sold, I really like this esthetic. Simple and honest.
The most beautiful antique canvas salvaged from a turn of the century apple harvesting sack has been transformed into a durable, everyday tote bag.
The material used to construct this bag is over 100 years old but still in the most wonderful condition. Printing from the original bag (the owner's name, his farm, and the town where the farm was located) has been incorporated into this bag to highlight the unique nature of the material. Any discoloration of the fabric is the result of many years of natural wear and aging.
Fully lined with cream colored cotton, this medium tote would be perfect for carrying everything you need during the day – a laptop, library books, groceries, etc. It also makes a wonderful weekend bag! Two good-sized inside pockets can easily hold a wallet, ipod, keys, camera.
Handles and buckle are constructed out of a beautiful, soft leather that was salvaged from a Swiss military backpack from approximately 1930. The hardware comes from the same Swiss backpack.
Tote measures approximately 19 inches wide, 14 inches tall, 4.5 inches deep.
Much time and care is put into making every Forestbound bag one of a kind.
