Canvas Naval Messenger Bag


We used a vintage WWII Naval Canvas Duffle Bag to make this one of a kind bag. There are so many great details on this bag that we had to keep from the original duffel. There are amazing stencil stamps on the front of the bag as well as the messenger strap that were from the original 1940s duffle. The natural duffle bags were what was used in the Navy in WWII and with each duffle bag comes a history and heritage as to who owned it. We want to hold onto this history and pass it along in this one of a kind bag.

The strap is made from the original strap of the duffle bag. The bag is fully lined with vintage ticking stripe cloth and has an interior pocket for added storage. We added a leather front tab closure with a brass stud.

The bottom of the bag has a medium tan 6oz. leather for added durability and style. We also kept all of the original gromets and hardware of the bag from the original deffle.
