Indigo Hunter Satchel: No. 12 of 21; Collection 3
We at Peg and Awl are continuously lured by the stories and the physical evidence of people and cultures – and the effect of time thereon.
Though historically we have used American textiles in our bags, we were drawn to 6 traditional hand-woven Indigo dyed fabrics from Africa – each distinctly patterned. These antique textiles tell the story of an already full life through their weaving, fading dyes, holes and repairs. We are celebrating these very marks of human existence by incorporating them into new interpretations of our Hunter Satchel.
Our third collection of Indigo Hunter Satchels was created with one of these textiles, resulting in a small batch of satchels whose distinct weave and wear render each thoroughly one-of-a-kind. This particular textile will be featured in this collection of 21 bags (11 small and 10 regular).
If you love it, don’t hesitate!
The satchel is fully constructed from durable Moss waxed canvas and overlaid with the African textile. Whether it be a journal, pens, pencils and a few snacks for a walk in the woods, or a wallet, keys and phone for a night excursion on the city streets, the Hunter Satchel is perfectly sized to bring only what you need.
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.
