A Bag That Can't be Beat

While you're admiring the lustrous botanical pattern that graces this crossbody bag, consider a practical note from makers Leah and Cody Seelye: "Our bags can withstand a beating." Handmade from waxed cotton canvas, they're tough, water resistant, and stain resistant—not to mention beautiful. Leah and Cody prepare their own canvas using a beeswax blend they custom formulated. Great as a stylish carry-on or tote for your everyday essentials, it features an interior slip pocket and shoulder strap adjustable to 54 inches long. Handmade in Michigan.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

“In this age of 'digital,' I feel that we are craving something to hold, to feel, and something to connect with.”

"In this age of 'digital,' I feel that we are craving something to hold, to feel, and something to connect with," says Wisconsin-born bag maker Leah Seelye. Growing up, her parents worked hard to instill in her an understanding of the value of handmade. Together with her husband Cody, Leah is passionate about hand-making products and sharing them with others. She genuinely believes that buying local and buying handmade is vital to building a community that helps each other.

Leah and Cody started creating their clutches and bags for those who love waxed canvas but want a wider variety of prints and styles. They're inspired by Southwestern prints and Scandinavian and American folk patterns and colors. Cody waxes all the canvas in their home studio. Learning to wax canvas with their own custom blend was an important part of their process. When not waxing canvas or turning it into bags, they love biking, photography, crafting, and caffeinating.

Comments about UncommonGoods Gold Waxed Canvas Crossbody Bag:

My wife uses it as an everyday purse. She loves the style and color. Well built and durable with sturdy bottom. She had used the sari bag for a few years and really loved it, but was ready for a change and this bag was a perfect replacement!

      Comments about UncommonGoods Gold Waxed Canvas Crossbody Bag:

      I wear this purse everyday. It's soft and flexible enough to be comfortable, but firm enough to hold its shape, so it still looks great after heavy use. The colors are beautiful and I enjoy looking at it hanging on the wall when I'm home. There's plenty of room for everything I carry everyday (a handful of thin pouches, keys, pen, phone, protein bar) plus a small book or period pouch on occasion. The interior pocket is nice and deep, but I sling the purse around quite a bit sometimes, and then my keys and pen fall out of it into the bottom of the purse. It's a pleasure to use.

              Comments about UncommonGoods Gold Waxed Canvas Crossbody Bag:

              I got this bag as a gift to myself for an exam I took. It's a lovely bag, but the brown part is a bit discolored. It looks as though it's been through salt in the winter, but the blue and gold print is beautiful and the strap length is great. I'd like it to be a bit wider since it's hard to access the items on the bottom of the bag.

                      This is a *beautiful* bag. I have had it for a couple of weeks and have received so many comments on it already. Though I said I bought it to have a relatively compact bag, I would actually buy this one's bigger sister, should she [ever] exist! You know, for when you just need a slightly larger carry-all.

                      Amazed how quickly it arrived. Must be proximity for me.
