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 different camouflage nylon fabric leftover from our military production work, accented with waxed canvas. The lid is and sides are made with a navy blue water-resistant PU coated nylon.
Other features include a rear pocket woven entirely out of off-cuts of webbing from our cutting room, and a removable shoulder strap.

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.
