But finally by 2015 I got round to doing a bit. I’m no seam-stress or tailor but I wanted to start making very simple, strong and practical items. Like anyone else I’ve bags I like and don’t like and I’d also thought of a couple of bags that I would like to own so…I started off with a very simple wash-bag, then an axe-bag to carry my Gransfors Bruks Small Forest Axe, next was a tarp compression sack/bag with pocket for tent pegs and lastly, an improved version of my all-time favourite, the draw-string bag.
I’ve since started to develop a range of bags that should do for both urban and woodland day-to-day environment and as I get stock made it will be going into the website shop…take a look!:
The Bimble (coming sooner)
The Camper (coming later)
Mostly they’ll be made with quality, heavy 15oz water-proof & rot-proof olive canvas and stitched with Gutermann Upholstery Thread on a freshly re-wired 70 year old Singer 201k-2 with an aim to making them all near indestructable lol!
