Custom made canvas bags
Here's a new line of products in our new expansion into the Safari lifestyle.
African Excursions' new line of Safari Gear. We've known about these
beautiful and rugged bags from when we lived in Botswana. They're custom
made by a small company that supplies luxury tents to the camps in the
Delta. Before we moved back to the States we had several items made
for us. We loved them and so when we were back in Maun this summer we
stopped by the workshop to see if the owners would be like to work with
us to bring these awesome bags to the US. They were as excited as we
were and we spent a morning talking about all the possibilities.
They can make almost anything out of canvas so in addition to the bags they've already designed; we came up with a few of our own. Peter even had his favorite but hard to find wallet recreated. Sorry, we're not offing it at the moment as it was a one off.
So, from the epicenter of the safari world, Maun, Botswana comes the ultimate safari bags. While these bags are quite handsome, their design puts function before fashion. They're made by people who know what's needed to survive harsh African use. The bags are simple and strong with no special bells or whistles because bells and whistles can break. They're made of the highest quality 14 oz. per sq. yd. canvas or cordura and trimmed with heavy duty nylon webbing. This is an excellent balance between strength and weight. Some canvas bags are made of super heavy canvas, and while these bags can hold a ton, they also weight a ton.
All bags are custom made to order. Choose from 6 different colors of canvas or 5 colors of cordura plus a trim color. Since these bags are being custom made by hand in Botswana, please allow for 12 weeks for delivery. You can also contact us with your own design for a bag. We are currently working with a world renowned falconer to develop a special falconry vest.
We're also looking for dealers, so please contact us if you're interested.
