A medium-sized waxed-canvas satchel bag designed for simplicity and convenience. Water-resistant and rugged for a long life, biodegradable for a respectful life. One large main compartment, two flat outside pockets, a simple leather closure, and a one-time adjustable cross-body strap. Fits a 13" laptop.
This satchel is plastic-free, metal-free, and made instead with non-toxic renewable resources - organic cotton, hemp, beeswax, plant dyes, and vegetable-tanned leather. It's hand-made in micro-batches in Northern Ontario.
This product is hand-dyed with plant and mineral dyes and hand-waxed. Colour variations and light or dark spots are normal, make each bag unique, and are beautiful vestiges of the hand-made small-batch process. All plant dyes gradually fade over time with exposure to light and life.
The veg-tan leather straps are rigid at first, then get supple and soft with time and use. Slight colour transfer may occur during first few uses of black leather straps, so please be mindful with light-coloured clothing.
