Our ex army canvas bags fly from the shelves at shows. And the last batch flew out within a day or so (thank you to everyone!).  I've managed to upcycle some more and they're here.  There are a very limited number and although I have a few left in reserve, I may not be able to get them customised in time for Christmas this year.

Most are dyed, some left natural. All of the patches are sewn on and they’re super useful in size with a cloth divide inside that will fit a flask. 

Also note that #37-#42 inclusive have much longer front flaps - they look a bit different because they are :)  Bags #37 and #41 only have 1 toggle each - so you may need to sew a button if it bothers you.


Width = 23cm  Height = 29cm

And the gusset opens to 9cm comfortably but I dare say you could stretch it another cm when it’s full of things, they’re very well made!

Unlike the previous batches, I've used a much bigger variety of patches.  Here are the translations for you:  So it's best to work out which messages you like and work from there.  Each 'set' of patches are on around 6 bags.

Alis Volat Propriis (Wings) - She Flies With Her Own Wings

Amata Sum (Heart) - Loved

Memento Vivere (Wings) - Remember to Live

Stercus Accidit (Heart) - Shit Happens

Carpie Diem (Wings) - Seize the Day

Non Duco Duco (Heart) - Lead, do not be led
