This bag, with its super simple construction, is one of the most popular classes at our shop in Denver. The bag is finished with a Fancy Tiger Leather Bag Handle & Closure Set, which we make right here in house. It features Pendleton 100% wool jaquard, which is available in-store at our Denver location. Other fabrics which would make a great substitute are canvas weight fabric, home dec weight, velveteen, ticking or waxed canvas.
