Waxed canvas originated in the sailing industry in Scotland in the 1920s and became widely used in sportswear and apparel because of its waterproofing abilities and superb durability. The Waxed Canvas Tote from Peg and Awl boasts the permanence of this wonder-material while also incorporating vintage fabric lined-pockets, vegetable tanned leather, brass rivets and Sam Browne buttons. This is the holy grail in unisex carryall totes, practical and perfect in every way. This tote was built to endure. Load it up, bring it everywhere. We are very excited to carry this exclusive from these designers.

The leather handles and strap from vegetable-tanned leather. It is detachable and measures 45 inches for a range of about 43 inches to 35 inches. There is a large external pocket and several internal pockets. The internal pockets include two 5.5 inch pockets, two pen/pencil pockets and one 2 inch pocket.
