The Rust + Indigo Gatherer Bag


Rust + Indigo Collection.

We wrangled a few yards of this amazing rusty coloured waxed canvas and made a few of our favourite Peg and Awl bags! The inside pocket is finished with antique indigo and white fabric that perfectly compliments the rust. Scoop 'em up before they are gone!

Inspired by olde bucket-shaped satchels, from apple-picking bags to firemen’s buckets to leather feed sacks. Finished with an overalls/apron-like front, our bag reflects the roots of early Americana. 

When closed, the bag is neat and tidy and a workhorse for everyday carrying, be it for tools, diapers, or daily hauling. Basket-like when un-zipped, the bag is a treat for small garden harvesting, going to market, picnicking or any kind of over-stuffing.

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.
