Welcome to 1820 Bag Co

Around the Studio - Fall Leather & Wool Totes

The date on the calendar reminds us that it's officially Autumn, and while the coolness in temperature begins to settle in most places, the sun is still shining warmly in South Florida.

So as we welcome in Autumn, we thought we would share the progress of one of our totes from the Leather & Wool collection featuring some fabulous Menswear Fall 2013 fabrics including Houndstooth, Tartan Plaids, Checked Wool and Canvas Leopard. 

We found a beautiful leather suede hide in a Burnt Orange which matched a checkered wool fabric.  The orange suede picks up the orange hues in the wool fabric.  A light brown stain added to the leather straps along with a zippered closure will make this tote perfect for the Fall...

...and work continues in the warm morning sunshine.

Back to School Messenger Bag for Men & Women

Purple Hemp Messenger BagA few years ago we came across a wonderful hemp/cotton fabric supplier. Hemp fabric is warm and soft yet it's known for its durability.

When we first discovered this fabric, we loved its laid back Bohemian look so much that we created a line of simple Messenger Bags incorporating this wonderful fabric. Designed for the minimalist, but the bag still practical as it contains several compartments to hold everything. There are two pockets under the flap, (which can hold an iPad on the larger bag). On the inside the bag is lined with a heavy canvas for extra durability and includes slip pockets on one side and a zippered pocket on the other. Messenger is slightly padded.   

Available in two sizes: Medium Fits a 15" Laptops & 17" Laptops

Available in two colors: Steel Gray and Purple
