Cotton canvas shoulder bag

Cotton canvas shoulder bag
£25.00 1 Available
Love this


This lined tan cotton canvas shoulder bag measures 27 cm high , 29 cm wide and 6 cm deep. The full size front flap is screen printed (using a hand-cut stencil) with the Barefoot Pedlar logo in black. The bag is closed with a simple webbing strap threaded through a pair of metal rings.
The 4cm wide webbing shoulder strap is adjustable and there are two large internal pockets which match the blue and white striped lining.
The bag can also be carried in the cross-body style, like a messenger bag.
The recycled cotton canvas has acquired a stylish patina from its history:dark patches and faded parts are part of the beauty and can't be replicated artificially.
The lining is made from offcuts from a bistro canopy project.


This cotton canvas started out as a large mess-style tent, obtained by a local heritage organisation for a cliff-top WW1 re-enactment event. When it got ruined in a Cornish storm I was at first horrified by the damage and waste. One tent was repairable, but I was given this one which was a write-off. It didn't take me long to realise that the heavy cotton, enhanced by its sejourn in a muddy field, was ideal for making rustic and robust items of practical use. I wanted to keep the designs simple, to tie in with the history of the canvas and of the area. WW1 and Cornish mining.

The size and shape were chosen to be practical for an every-day bag used for slinging in all you need to take with you for the day. It's great for library books as well.

I use this fabric for sturdy aprons, duffle bags and hats too.
