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. The Waxed Canvas Reader from Peg and Awl boasts the permanence of this wonder-material while also incorporating vintage-fabric lined pockets, reclaimed leather straps (from WWII rifle slings) for handles, and brass rivets. This bag offers the durability and detail of the waxed canvas tote from Peg and Awl but a little smaller—better for us city-dwellers.
Features 1 external pocket 7.5” x 5.5”. 1 large internal pocket.
