Indigo-Dyed Vintage Naval "SGT" Tote

345.00

This is a one-of-a-kind bag made from a WWII naval duffle bag that has been indigo-dyed to give it a new gorgeous color. You can still see the stenciling and other markings from the original duffle, preserving this treasured piece of naval history while giving it a modern update. The reinforced bottom and the trim inside the top are made from beautiful red veg-tanned leather that's gone through extensive hand-processing to achieve a loved look that pairs perfectly with the vintage naval duffel. There is a generous natural veg-tanned pocket on the front to keep your essentials close at hand. The tote straps are made from natural hand-cut + finished belting leather. All of the gorgeous natural leather on this bag will patina and get even softer with use and time. The bag is fully lined in a sturdy canvas ticking and has two pockets for organizing your small loose treasures. Our signature cross detail is hand-embroidered on the front pocket. The final special finishing touch is a handmade red veg-tanned leather tassel clipped to a D-ring on the front, which can serve either as a beautiful detail or can be removed to use as a keychain. This one-of-a-kind bag truly evokes a historic nautical feel and is a perfect size for travel or everyday.
