Dry Oilskin Project Bag - Khaki / Black Drawstring

Regular price $185.00

Tax included.

A rather nice knitting bag for your special projects, in a vintage khaki. 

Reminiscent of a 1930s boxing bag, this drawstring knitting bag will provide storage for small to large projects. The last photo shows my own oilskin bag after three years of heavy use. This was a lighter colour red oilskin.

The bag is fully lined, with two external and one internal pocket. It's well-batted, so will stand up on its own. There's a black drawstring, and hand-finished natural veg tanned leather handle - the handle will darken over time.

There's lots of top-stitching, and room for a fair bit of yarn - I can get a good 10 skeins in mine. Hardware is solid brass.

Height -  29 cm/11.5 inches
Width - 36 cm / 14 inches
Depth - 15 cm / 6 inches (that's measured along the bottom boxing)
Outer - British oilskin.
Inner - Undyed fabric in a mix of Japanese cotton/linen / unbleached canvas / unbleached heavy calico - or a mix of these, carefully pieced together to reduce waste. 
Internal pockets - Japanese cotton/linen confetti print!

Bag outer can be spot cleaned with a damp cloth. Dry oilskin will get a more crumpled look, and lighten with age. It is possible to smooth out some (but not all) wrinkle marks, with light use of a hair dryer.

Inner can be carefully washed, keeping the leather strap and oilskin out of the water. 

Bag drawstrings are quite stiff - this softens up with use.
