It has been a long time ago since we acquired these heavy-weight duck fabric. If I remember correctly, we got it from one of our leather supplies when we were having a chat about duck fabric. Leading us to the upper storage of shelves, he enthusiastically dug deep and pulled out few rolls of dusty duck canvas. As the warehouse needed space for more leather hides coming in, he actually wanted to throw these rolls of duck canvas away to make way.
Coincidentally, when we mentioned we would like to try out on canvas, he thought we should have these. True enough, we imagined we might be able to run some designs on them. So, we loaded them on the trunk and brought at least 5 to 6 rolls back to the workshop.
However, ever since we stocked these heavy-weight canvas, we have not put them into good use either… Until recently, while arranging them in the new workshop, we decided to make some bags out of them.
We did a few prototype runs and finalized on 2 designs at the moment – A messenger style and a bag suitable for bikers.
Quality check and all carried out on the messenger bag for 6 months. Got into rain, spices, dirt and then washed twice and sun. Oiled twice after washing and it turns out this way.
