Peg and Awl Bags... We've Got 'Em

Our first shipment of bags from Peg & Awl arrived a few weeks ago, and we couldn't be more thrilled. They are such a fine example of the goods we like to carry here at the shop – quality handiwork by artisans who are fiercely dedicated to their craft.

Peg & Awl are a husband and wife team out of Pennsylvania. They started the company in 2009 when Walter returned from a year long tour in Iraq. Their first item he created was a beautiful oak tub caddy (it went viral on Pinterest), and since then, together they have created many lovely products from reclaimed leather, vintage fabrics, and the wood of old barns that have been around since the 1800s.

We have quite an assortment of their bags, satchels, and waxed pouches at the shop, and we hope you'll come and see them! Most of them are made from a sturdy waxed canvas that's waterproof, can be wiped down, and only gets better with age.
