Quite Continental Wants: Forestbound Men’s Canvas and Leather Carryall

17/05/2011 § 1 Comment

Jessica, of The Shiny Squirrel and guru of all things accessory-related, turned me on to Forestbound, a Boston-based accessories line by Alice Saunders that utilizes salvaged and vintage materials to create interesting, conversation-starting pieces.  I immediately fell in love with the clean and sturdy manner in which Alice reinterprets the materials she sources and the one-of-a-kind bags she creates.  Owning a Forestbound bag is the opportunity to own a completely original piece of history — with remarkable style — that you can carry with you at all times.

I recently learned of Forestbound’s latest menswear-focused collection from Christine of N’East Style and was very interested to see Alice take a distinctly more masculine approach to her work. For her capsule menswear collection, Alice features the use of WWII era US military canvas, fashioned into a line of four spectacular bags.  While the bags were designed with men in mind as the intended consumers, it shouldn’t come as any surprise to you how much I like them.  Since reading Christine’s post, I cannot remove from my mind the image of the gorgeous Canvas and Leather Carryall.  I may be obsessed.  While the caryall also comes in white or tan, the olive is my clear choice here, as the contrast with the leather make for a very handsome bag.

Scoop the Canvas and Leather Carryall here, and do have a look about Forestbound’s Etsy shop as well.
