In case you missed it, we collaborated with Matt Nash to produce a market bag last year, just in time for Christmas. They were incredibly popular and sold out well before Christmas. Lucky for you, we’ve got more on the way and they’re available for pre-order from now – get your orders in for this round by Friday January 16 and we’ll deliver by Tuesday 27 January.
To recap: these bags are made by hand here in Auckland from heavy-duty canvas, with handles made from heavyweight webbed cotton, securely sewn for heavy loads. There’s a handy pouch for your wallet and phone in the front, a canvas loop for your keys and a pouch for a wine bottle, so the bag transitions to picnic bag with ease. And – get this – it’s lined with nylon with to contain hummus spills and muddy potatoes.
After a summer of fairly intense use, we’re thrilled to report ours is bearing up well – the idea with these bags is they look good now, but they’ll also weather with age and use over time. The leather will develop a patina, the screenprint will scuff a little, though it won’t lose any of its strength or practicality. Got a special request? Send us an email and we’ll see if we can oblige.
