Patchwork Transit Bag ‘ Up-Cycled Shoulder Bag ‘ American Boro Messenger Bag ‘ Canvas Satchel ‘ Courier 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!
Part of our Transit bag collection, this simple cross-body bag is made from an assortment of up-cycled military vehicle cover fabrics and re-purposed canvas wall tent material sewn together using our “American boro” technique. It is both water-resistant and fire-retardant, and one-of-a-kind.
Features include: a large central pocket, an open-top external pocket, and a removable shoulder strap. All hardware, webbing, and thread are all military grade ensuring your bag is adventure ready.
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.
