The Couranteer Music Bag

Based off a 1920's design for carrying sheet music, I expanded it to fit a laptop, and added two interior pockets and one exterior pocket. I also added some d-rings to the back so it can be worn over the shoulder with a strap. Pairs well with tweed, a tall umbrella, and dramatic court room revalations that one of the jurors is secretly a stooge for the mob.

The back of the Couranteer has one large exterior pocket, perfect for stashing your New Yorker, dog-eared copy of The Sound and the Fury, or your phone on which you definitely weren't just crushing candy. The interior is one large compartment with two phone sized pockets in the rear. Shoulder strap included.

Made the right way.

Hand stitched. Hand dyed. Hand crafted.

Every item I make is produced entirely by hand. When I say by hand I don't mean I use my hands to feed it into a machine. Every last stitch (634 on this bag) is punched and sewn with an awl and two needles held between my fingers. A saddle stitch done this way will outlast anything done on a sewing machine. I hand dye every inch of leather with dyes I mix in-house. This allows me to eschew the uniformity that is required in factory made goods and make something that stays true to the individual character of the hide. All the leather is domestically sourced from a small town in Pennsylvania. Like the history I am keeping alive in practicing my trade, properly taken care of, this bag will become a part of your personal history. If there was a better way to have made this bag I would have done so.
