*The Crafter’s Box Canvas & Leather Portfolio Bag*
Note: this bag is currently in pre-order status, our next batch will ship mid-July.
For the painter and the weaver, a custom portfolio carrying case.
We’ve built a portfolio case to support your travel making needs. It can be challenging carrying around a full-size loom, several large canvases or a punch needle frame – this canvas & leather bag has been built just for you.
Our canvas portfolio is incredibly sturdy – she’s heavy duty enough to hold your favorite supplies conveniently while traveling but designed in such a way that this large tote is ideal for keeping in the home office or bedroom for easy access to your curated tools & materials for making.
-a sturdy black canvas body, overall measurements: 28 inches across, 22 inches tall, 2 inches deep
-thick raw leather shoulder straps
-a flat body that unzips on THREE size for easy access for large materials but with three separate zipper panels so you can open just one at a time (to pull your loom out of the very top of your bag, for example)
-a waterproof lining all around! paint brushes are not deterred 🙂
-a complex internal pocket system to individually hold various sizes of paint brushes, pens, pencils and so forth
-an internal zippered pocked
-an outer large pocket to hold booklets, drawing pads and other materials
To accompany this bag, explore our additional line of custom crafting tool storage: our custom canvas & leather carryall toolbox, a canvas tool pouch to keep sharp scissors and jewelry pliers safe, a waterproof travel bag that’s ideal for your watercolor palette and brushes on the go, and a brush roll conveniently captures paint brushes, graphite pencils, brush lettering pens and more in an organized fashion.
