Oversized Olive Vintage Crossbody Tote

425.00

This one-of-a-kind bag was painstakingly reconstructed from a gigantic vintage camping rucksack; actually an “official camping packsack." The original piece was completely deconstructed and then reworked into a fabulous oversized bag complete with much of the original hardware. It would be great as a weekender or just for times when you need to carry a lot of stuff. The bottom is reinforced with gorgeous black veg-tanned leather that has been extensively hand-processed to give it a look and feel that normally comes from loving a leather piece for a long time and works beautifully with the vintage feel of the bag. The tote straps are made from hand-cut + finished black belting leather that will patina and soften with use. The crossbody strap is made from a vintage linen firehose and has been deemed the most comfortable strap for your shoulder, especially when you’re carrying around the kitchen sink. There are two pockets reworked from the original bag on the front to keep essentials close at hand. There’s another black leather snap patch pocket on back for even more organization. The top zips completely shut to keep everything safely inside. The inside is lined with ticking canvas and has two additional generous pockets. Our signature cross detail is hand-embroidered in red on the back pocket to give it just the perfect amount of detail. This bag was no doubt a workhorse in its previous life and will be in this one as well.
