- SHOULDER BAGS
Our return to making briefcases has created a supply of
leather pieces just right for shoulder bags. Cutting only large
briefcase panels from hides is a very inefficient use of leather
hides. Economics demanded we produce something else. Thus, we
present the return of our classic styles from our old shop. Below
find our first offering. Depending on the response, we might
add more styles.
- SHOULDER BAG No. 28
- This extremely durable bag is made of the same "English
Bridle" leather from Wickett & Craig (www.Wickett-Craig.com) of Pennsylvania used
in our briefcases and belts. We use a thinner lighter 6 oz weight
version in the cases and bags. Although the shoulder strap itself
is full 8 to 10 oz weight belt leather. In addition to the main
large section there is a flat pocket against the inside back
panel and a flat pocket on the front panel under the flap. More
photos available. Hardware is solid brass. Can be made using
Size 8 ¼"L to R, 3 ½"F to B, 9"
high. Strap drop adjustable 17" to 20" (can be made
to your spec).
Over the past two years while making briefcases,
I managed to make a few mistakes. Currently I have one less than
perfect case and one such shoulder bag. Briefcase #12 w/zip pocket
reduced from 435.00 to 295.00 and bag 28 from 185.00 to 135.00.
Photos of bags and defects available.
