Nylon Shoulder Bag ‘ Up-Cycled Musette Bag ‘ Crossbody Purse ‘ Crossbody 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 a compact but spacious homage to the Musette bag 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.
This particular bag features a patchwork of water-resistant nylon fabric leftover from our production work, and showcases an abstracted patchwork flower design on the front of the body.
Other features include: a rear pocket, two side pockets with snap closures, a removable shoulder strap, and metal tension hooks to secure the lid.
Length 11.5 inches
Height: 9.5 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.
