We're sorry we've been a little quiet on the blog lately. In amongst a busy start to the year, we've been busy getting our new studio space just perfect! Working on a new collection, which we hope to share with you in early spring and we also got the chance to work on a commission for a Custom Lunch Bag.
Our customer was looking for a lunch tote like our Stockbridge tote but with a few extra details. It had to perfectly fit his lunch, no more, no less, and have carry handles. Essentially a hybrid of our Stockbridge Tote and our Inverleith Lunch Bag.
We used the same classic materials of, British Soywax Canvas and British Bridle Hide Straps to create this bag. These materials will age beautifully. The canvas will take on its own unique patina just like leather does, and can be re-waterproofed and the bridle hide will become soft and supple with use.
Keeping to the same classic shape adjusting to make it slightly wider and shorter to our customers specifications and rather than an open top like our tote, we added a roll top to keep the rain out when he's out in the field. Finishing it off with two solid cast brass sam browne fixings to keep the bag closed. Minimal yet effective.
This was an interesting commission to work on and we're really happy with the outcome.
Let us know what you think and it may be added to our collection in the future.
Do you have a custom bag commission you'd like to discuss with us?
Have a great weekend!
