1940S LONE STAR WEEKENDER DUFFEL BAG

$252.00

ONE OF A KIND ITEM - WE ARE ONLY ABLE TO MAKE 3 OF THESE BAGS

Handmade one of a kind weekender duffel bag using a hand-stitched vintage quilt from the 40s. A star pattern is not an easy design to cut or sew. Precision is extremely important as any inaccuracy in cutting or piecing is multiplied as pieces are added. If poorly pieced, the quilt will not lie flat when finished. An intricate star pattern was one way for a woman to show her needlework skills. Many times the quilt maker deliberately sewed a mistake somewhere in the quilt. It is thought, by some, that this reflected the maker's faith in God; for only God can make a perfect thing.

Because this quilt was so beautiful and in such great condition on both sides, we opted out of lining this bag (as we usually do with our weekender duffels) and instead used a contrasting trim to bind the seams on the inside. The straps are made in LA and the bag features complimentary zips on the exterior. Each bag has been hand cut from different sections of the same textile to achieve a unique and truly one of a kind piece. This pack features two outer pouches for easy access storage. It’s perfect for carry on items, a weekend adventure, and folds down to a convenient size for storage.
