American Boro Musette ‘ Patchwork Shoulder Bag ‘ Crossbody Purse ‘ Patchwork Nylon Bag ‘ Made in USA
The Moonrise Project puts the sustainability message of Diamond Brand Gear into action. The fabric for our American Boro and Rescue series was originally destined for the landfill before we found it and re-purposed it into something new and beautiful!
This shoulder bag is our homage to the compact yet spacious Musette bag that was issued to U.S. Paratroopers during WW2. It’s boxy shape and Cordura nylon fabric are the perfect mix of industrial and outdoorsy, and it would be right at home serving as everything from a lunch bag to your everyday carry.
Features include: Two side pockets with snap closures, removable shoulder strap, and a convenient carry handle. Finally, the shaped lid is secured by two surplus side release buckles.
Length 11.5 inches

In 1881 Diamond Brand Gear first came to the heart of the Smokey Mountains. During this time, sewing and craft were a dominant aspect of daily life in Asheville. We got our start in a small, defunct hosiery mill that quickly turned into a thriving factory. When the textile industry began to offshore their facilities, we made it our mission to revive the art of sewing and keep production in the USA. We are committed to the preservation of craftsmanship, the formation of a greener economy, and the creation of durable goods that enhance the experience of all adventurers. Thus the Moonrise Project was born to help elevate our scraps and help the world through Reclaiming, Reusing, and Recreating.
