Indigo Hunter Satchel with African Mudcloth

Rated 5.0 stars
1 Review


We unearthed these Hunters from a collection from the past. They were boxed when we moved – and forgotten! We made them with a gorgeous striped African Mudcloth paired with truffle waxed canvas. The straps are made from vintage and deadstock WWII era leather!

Original Description

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.

The satchel is fully constructed from durable Truffle 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.

- 15 oz. waxed duck canvas (19 oz. with wax) (Truffle)
- Leather strap and clasp from deadstock to well-worn WWII gunsling
- African textile overlay and pocket lining
- Brass rivets and button studs
- 1 interior pocket
- Minimally packaged with tag and string

    I love my satchel and use it as my purse. The cloth itself is wonderfully imperfect with hand stitching, and it all comes together in a perfect Peg & Awl unique and functional bag.
