Presenting the most perfect, simple waterproof tote. The perfect size for a day at the pool, beach, lunch in the park, class, or a trip to the grocery store and more!
This bag is constructed by us using sturdy Vietnam-era Waterproof Canvas, same era nylon webbing straps, and a variety of denim-specific industrial sewing machines in the assembly process.
The Assembly Process:
First, the body is seamed using a 4-thread Merrow overlock and A&E Tex-40 Permacore thread, covering the edges from fraying. Next, the mouth of the bag is hemmed using A&E Tex-80 Permacore thread and a Union Special 43200G two thread chainstitch machine, commonly known as a bulldog hemmer, creating a roping effect like a vintage jean cuff, which becomes more apparent with wash and use. The straps are attached with a Singer 241-12 lockstitch machine using A&E Tex-80 Permacore thread. Lastly the straps are reinforced with bartacks to prevent detaching through use using A&E Tex-40 Permacore thread on a Singer 69-11.
This bag is high-tech yet simple. Waterproofed canvas means it can take a splash or a raindrop, or ten. Nylon handles won't inundate if it gets wet, and if it gets drenched, it will quickly dry and be ready for use again in no time. This perfectly matches our Dopp kit in the same materials.
The finished dimensions are 15” H x 12” W x 3” D with 28” straps.
