"US" Vintage Military Crossbody Tote

395.00

This truly one-of-a-kind bag is made from a very special vintage military duffle bag that still bears some really interesting stenciling and handwriting from the original owner. The reinforced bottom and front patch pocket are made of a gorgeous olive veg tanned leather from one of the most prestigious tanneries in Italy. The leather has gone through extensive hand-processing to create a vintage look and feel in keeping with the original duffle. There’s an additional generous snap patch pocket on back that’s made from the same vintage fabric. The tote straps are made from black hand-cut + finished belting leather that will also patina and soften with wear. The top can be securely closed with a full zipper. The fully removable cross body strap is made from a vintage linen fire hose and has been deemed the most comfortable strap on your shoulder no matter how much stuff you tote around. There are two more pockets on the inside to keep track of loose treasures. The inside is fully lined with ticking canvas. And to top it all off, there’s a jumbo handmade black leather tassel that can be left as a beautiful detail or removed to use as a coordinating key fob. This is a very special piece of American history that's equally comfortable for travel or for everyday.
