Fanny Pack ‘ Checkered Canvas ‘ Sling Bag ‘ Bum 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 combining a classic 1980’s design with our handmade patchwork fabric to create a durable bag that you can take with you just about anywhere. The shell is made from strips of up-cycled canvas wall tent scraps that have been woven together and then stitched for form a checked pattern. The back panel is padded using military aircraft cover scraps for additional comfort, and the interior is lined with off-cut pieces of ripstop nylon from our line of dome tents
Other features include a main compartment with an interior pocket with zipper closure and a key lanyard loop. Comfortable 1.5-inch webbing hip belt adjusts up to 40 inches and is secured with a military spec side release buckle. All together it’s a water-resistant and durable waist pack that’s ready to go anywhere.
Because this unique piece is made with up-cycled fabric, it is one of a kind!
When Diamond Brand Gear first came to the heart of the Smokey Mountains, 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.
