Tropical Hibiscus on Vintage Linen Hemp Military Messenger Bag Purse Hand Painted

This is just one gem of a military bag aside from being so very cool, it has 3 usable pockets inside! And we all love pockets to hold our stuff and keep us organized! Its made from a coarse linen, some say hemp or flax, but its a nice texture. The look of the bag is absolutely stellar. Its also quite rare as in nearly impossible to find. I do have to tip my hat to the Czech military for creating such amazing bags nearly 65 years ago! Most are date stamped on the inshat to the Czech military for creating such amazing bags nearly 65 years ago! Most are date stamped on the inside flap and are from the early 1950s. Hand painted with a couple lovely Hibiscus flowers, its a nice contrast to the ruggedness of the bag. Its a bit stiff after my thorough cleaning, sanitizing and deodorizing process, but it does soften with wear. I had to spirit one away for me (as naturally I would!) and I really, really like it. Like the other vintage military bags, its easy to wash when it gets dirty. Mild soap, no soaking, shape the bag let dry! The paint will not be affected as I use only the best art paints that are waterproof. Ive been using them for over 10 years and wouldnt use anything else. The Bag 12w x 9h x 3.5d Large flap with 2 buckle closure (the buckles arent really necessary since the flap is so large.) But they look great! 45 comfy, wide adjustable shoulder strap can be carried cross body Large main compartment 3 interior pockets all decent sized! Sturdy, heavyweight linen fabric . . . . . . . .CLEAN BAGS for your Carrying Pleasure . . . . . . . . My vintage military bags have been thoroughly cleaned, sanitized and deodorized. I even press them so they look nice! Its very time consuming (and really no fun at all!) but I would want nothing less than CLEAN in a bag I purchased. Yes, I am a geek about these bags! But with any vintage military...there may be an ever so tiny scent generally ones with leather (minor, and it will go away with time.) Most find it negligible or nonexistent and are amazed at how wonderfully clean my military bags are!! read more
