CINCH TOTE - SUN RELIEF WAXED
The concept for this Limited Edition is the result of a longing for brighter days. Although we really enjoy Winter, it seems that this year in New England we've seen far more dark & dreary days than usual. The liner fabric is so bright and warm that we had to use it for a little ocular rejuvenation.
For this version, we took a different approach to fabric weight and structure. Normally, we use a heavier weight fabric for the body of the bag and a lighter weight for the liner of the bag (if we use a liner). We wanted to use this heavy golden yellow canvas for the liner which naturally made us think to use a more lightweight fabric for the outer shell. It's a different feel for this type of bag and we're going to experiment more with weight in the future.
The main body is waxed canvas, as are the handles. We’ve added a grommet/tether detail similar to that found on our Brimfield Bag, which is useful for finding keys that get lost in the bottom of your bag.
Denim Cinch Top
We rinsed USA grown & woven denim for our cinch top which gave it a nice softness.
The interior hardware is solid Brass and the hand-hammered rivets are Copper.
Truly gets better with age, as most things worth holding onto should.
