city bag – tea shipping sacks
The material in this bag is a mix of canvas and plastic taken from discarded shipping sacks which are used to send tea from India around the world. This is an incredibly light bag (8 ounces!) with an adjustable shoulder strap. The large front pocket has a flap which can be velcroed down either over the horizontal strap for quick access or underneath for extra security. Also includes two interior flap pockets, one interior zippered compartment and one zippered compartment on the back of the bag.
