The Rum Bag $170
In jungle green, this Australian canvas bag has Australian leather strap and accessories.
Lined in cotton check print. Handmade in rural Victoria, Australia.
Our biggest seller so far, the Rum Bag reflects the story of the first Australian female pilot to fly in New Guinea. In 1953 she force-landed on the bank of the Keang River and was dropped some inedible food, water, a Luger pistol and a bottle of rum.
With its undercarriage, propeller and wingtip damaged, the black and white chequered tail of the aeroplane pointed skywards.
Stencil can be customised with any three letters. Pockets are made deeper than shown, to accommodate iPhone 11 (or hip flask)
The Cactus Bag $170
Grey Australian canvas bag with Australian leather strap and accessories, adorned with roo hide cactus.
Lined in cotton print. Designed by Kathy and hand made in rural Australia.
The Cactus Bag tells of a time when Australian slang didn’t translate to the Americans on the other end of the radio transmission.
The pilot uttered the words, Geez mate, we’re the ones that are cactus!
Can be made in other colours.
The Ag Bag $170
Stunning pink Australian canvas bag with Australian leather strap and accessories. Lined in cotton. Handmade in rural Victoria.
The Ag Bag is themed after our cover girl, the ag pilot. She scored herself a pink work shirt and as the only female ag pilot at the time, she would have been easy to spot in the plane. Easily fits laptop, ipad, phone, lipstick, aviators, and a hairbrush to deal with the helmet head.
