Planet Tote ' Nylon Tote Bag ' Market Bag ' Sashiko Tote 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! We're resisting the urge to call this tote "stellar" or use other celestial references, but it is a pretty awesome bag and it id truly a labor of love for the maker that built it. Each planet and its features are hand-cut out of scrap fabrics and sewn to an individual square. After the squares are joined a sashiko stitch machine is used to individually single-needle topstitch each row of stitching. The remainder of the bag is finished with a tonal composition of additional scrap fabric offset with reflective binding material. Features include: a stainless steel snap top closure, snaps to add a Compack zip pouch (sold separately), military spec web carrying straps, and a water-resistant ripstop nylon lining. -Measurements- Height: 15 inches Width: 15 inches Depth: 6 inches -About Us- 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.
