Spring Essentials Pouch: Scarlet No. 5
Our new Spring Essentials Pouches combine antique textiles inside and waxed canvas outside or vice versa. Each is paired with a springy vintage zipper. Another Choose Your Own Adventure!
Last summer we found a little stack of antique German textiles that was irresistible—there were blues and reds, a variety of plaid pillow shams, bedspreads. They were used to pack antique furniture en route from Germany to America, and after transport, were sitting neatly folded, and severely neglected—until I spied them.
If you love pouches then you are in for a treat! We cut up the textiles and incorporated them into our Essentials Pouch. Use one for pens, pencils and art supplies and another for balms and tinctures. Pouches help to organize our bags and lives into satisfying little pockets – it is hard to be without them and you can never have too many.
Constructed waxed canvas originated in the sailing industry in Scotland in the 1920s and became widely used in sportswear and apparel because of its waterproofing abilities and superb durability.
