Shipping to United States: $19.63
Sorry, this item has sold.

Salt & pepper canvas and leather Swiss army bread bags, dating from the 1950s. Noted flaws - some of the leather will need regular oiling to keep it in good condition, it might need padding out to achieve a good shape, as it has been baled up flat. Tough salt and pepper canvas outer, leather straps can attach to a belt or bike, fastens at the rear, making it a very secure bag, cotton webbing strap, thick leather, date and Swiss army stamps, a great looking bag, suitable for men or women and a variety of situations. Measures 11" x 11" x 3" and the straps are around 33" long.

How do I know if an item will fit me?

Please compare the measurements provided in the listing with a similar item of your own that fits you well; if they are the same or very similar, it will most likely be a good fit for you.

Lay the item flat; the pit to pit measurement is taken under the armpits.
Shoulders are measured flat across the front from the outer shoulder seam to outer shoulder seam.
Arms are measured along the outside edge from outer shoulder seam to cuff.
The length is measured from the back of the collar seam down to the front hem.
If you need any clarification on measurements, please contact me before purchasing; ultimately, it is your responsibility to check that the measurements provided are right for you.

What sort of packaging do you use?

I use mailing bags which are made from responsibly sourced sugar cane. They look and feel like plastic, but are fully recyclable and have a carbon neutral footprint. I try and keep packaging to a minimum to avoid excess weight and transport costs.

Disapointed about this bag. The leather and the canvas are not in a good condition. There are not as good as pictures. Vintage doesnt mean not in a good condition. Price should be different if its in a good condition ans if its not. I found the price correct if the condition was good as we can see on the pictures. But its not in a good condition, so its truly too expensive.
