Introducing our new line of canvas travel bags. Made from substantial 18 oz. canvas and hand-dipped in paraffin wax so that they don't have that oily feel or smell you get with lesser-quality canvas bags.
Handles are hand-rolled from the finest American cowhide.

All exposed edges are sanded and sealed.
It's the attention to detail that determines quality.
