Husband and wife artists Peg and Awl, located in Philadelphia. Their work is made from old things, treasures found and recovered from misfortune and neglect, relics of the unusual, the confused and the macabre, cut and pulled and built into wearable curiosities, inscribable keepsakes and useable, longlasting treasures. They used to make them for themselves and now they make them for everyone.

Inspired by her “Weekly Readers” book club tote that served as her bag for many years, this small tote, the reader,  is perfect for a few essentials and will leave you unburdened, especially if you are the type who loathes a weighty carryall. Perfect for books, iPads, e-readers, &c.

Built from constructed waxed canvas. The 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.

15 oz. waxed duck canvas (19 oz. with wax)
leather handles from deadstock to well-worn WWII gunsling
vintage fabric pocket lining varies from bag to bag
