This bag is a modern take on the US cavalry bag that was used by the soldiers in the American Civil War.
It is constructed from two main elements and has two leather straps that loop through the main flap for a very robust and secure closure using solid brass buckles. It also has a padded rear section for a full-size laptop.
The design incorporates a foam layer to retain the bag’s unique shape and has two outer and two inner YKK zipped pockets for stowing valuables.
All the pockets are accessed through slashed leather openings. We never use patch pockets on our bags. All pockets are set inside the inner or outer linings.
All our bags are made with individually selected printed gloss finished ‘kitenge’ lining.
The buckles, spring clips and other brassware are made by local artisans from recycled brass.
