Story of the canvas
All canvas used was sourced from an awning factory years ago and is “new old stock”. In this case that means rolls of canvas were used since the 1970’s and the little left over pieces were stored in a corner. Or, in other cases a blind was made for a customer but it either didn’t fit or perhaps Mrs Jones really didn’t like that Mandarin canvas against her house, so the blind was put aside in that corner.
Then, a few years ago I came along looking for industry discards to make canvas bags from. Whilst trying to conceal my excitement, barely, I took home the lot and have been using the precious pieces carefully in pannier bags, satchels, mini duffel bags. These flaps for the Brompton S-Bag are an entirely appropriate use for this beautiful history laden material.
