Depth: 3 inches
Front Pocket: 7 in x 9 in

Strap options:

Shoulder straps: two straps attached to front and back of bag, designed to sit on one shoulder (not across the body). These have a 13" drop from the top of the shoulder to the top of the bag, approximately (depending on your shoulder of course). These straps are approximately 1/2 inch wide. We can do a 1 inch shoulder strap width on request for an upcharge, please message us after purchase if you wish to widen those straps.

Crossbody: A single, longer adjustable strap, which attaches at the sides of the bag. This strap adjusts with an antique brass buckle, and can adjust in length from 36" - 45". This strap is 1 inch wide.

Both Straps Option: Both sets! The shoulder straps with the 13" drop, and a detachable version of our longer, adjustable crossbody strap. When in doubt, go with both straps! This allows you to choose which you want that day (maybe you want a crossbody strap for a festival, travel, etc, but just shoulder straps for work- the choice is yours!)

Other options for you!

Lined vs Unlined: The lined bag is just like it sounds, it has a full canvas interior lining with a full panel internal zipper pocket. Choose this if you want a more structured bag, and want that inside pocket! Unlined is a more back-to-basics, budget option. It is a raw waxed canvas interior, with no internal pocket. We love both, it just depends on your needs! Keep in mind the waxed canvas seams inside are unfinished, and may fray slightly at first few uses, but due to the nature of the waxed canvas threads, this stops quickly, and does not affect the integrity of the bag itself. You can trim loose ends with any basic pair of scissors! Or, again, for a more finished vibe, go for the lining!

Closures: Choose between our sturdy antique brass heavy snap closure or an equally sturdy antique brass zipper close! The basic default closure is snap, but select zipper in the options at checkout to get that zipper closure upgrade.

We have three sizes of this bag, small, medium and large. This listing is for our SMALL bag. Check out our shop for more options!

A little about our waxed canvas bags:

Our waxed canvas comes from right outside Philadelphia, from one of the oldest textile mills in the country. We love the vibe waxed canvas gives off, comfortable, utilitarian, effortlessly stylish and meant for all weather. The canvas is water-resistant. To refresh your canvas (after a few years of use) we recommend otter wax to give it a fresh coat! (think along the lines of conditioning leather).

This bag is awesome. It is the waxed canvas version of our classic leather tote, and we are so excited to bring it to you this year! Available in all of our waxed canvas colors, and versatile, this is an "every single day bag."
