An Evolution is Upon Us
At Peg and Awl, we love what time does to an object: the natural transformation that occurs as it takes on the marks of the life that it has seen – the satisfaction of breaking something in and allowing it to grow with you. Our newly-evolved Tote and Finch Satchel, durably constructed with waxed canvas and locally sourced vegetable tanned leather, are clean slates eagerly awaiting this metamorphosis.
With the introduction of this collection using newly vegetable tanned leather, we are reaffirming the fellowship between ourselves and the materials with which we make, while simultaneously carving a new facet into the cornerstone of Peg and Awl’s mission. By creating beautiful and useful objects out of sustainable and responsibly sourced materials, we strive to change the way that we as individuals make, use, repair and reuse everyday objects. As our new bags leave our Philadelphia workshop and arrive at your doorsteps, what adventures will they see in your hands and how will they transform to become truly yours?
We still have a lot of work to do in our quest of creating a fully traceable source of leather. You can learn more about our progress in that adventure on our blog.
And Then There Were None…
Our current stock pile of Antique Leather is coming to an end, and due to the scarcity, the remaining Totes and Finches finished with these straps can now be found in our Of a Kind section. So if you’ve had your eye on our antique leather bags, now is the time to scoop one up before they’re gone!
