We’ve been giving away watches for the past month and today we are changing this. We’ve partnered with kaufmann-mercantile to offer you one super awesome extra large cotton canvas duffle bag! Kaufmann Mercantile is a New York based online store for carefully selected, long-lasting, and well-designed goods. We also write and commission a library of essays on the history of materials, various how-tos, and Q&A’s with artists and designers.
A little more info about the bag: Heavy-weight 18-ounce cotton canvas duffle bag with cotton webbing handles and detachable over-the-shoulder strap. Lined with 100% combed cotton twill, micro-sanded for softness. Solid brass hardware. Made in the U.S. Often associated with gym buffs, the duffle bag has, in fact, a naval history. Spanish and Portuguese sailors of the early 17th-century found that the leftover scraps from a ship’s sails, imported from a fabric supplier in the town of Duffel, Belgium, created a much sturdier (and much needed) waterproof bag.
This duffle is manufactured in the U.S.A. exclusively for KM by a company that got its start servicing the sailing, fishing and yachting industries. The bag is cut from thick 18-ounce cotton canvas with two sturdy cotton webbing handles reinforced by riveted leather accents. The longer cotton webbing shoulder strap is detachable, and comes with a leather shoulder pad cushioned with wool felt. All hardware is solid brass and therefore rustproof. Rather than nylon, the lining is 100% combed cotton twill – a detail developed exclusively for Kaufmann Mercantile – which is micro-sanded for extra softness.
