When we found this dead stock roll of 1960's Swiss army sturdy waxed nettle cotton fabric we were excited to work with it. This fabric is one of the nicest we have seen. It is so densely woven that it is water repellent. Since we have a complete roll we were able to make more than one bag, especially when we came across a batch of dead stock naked cowhide leather skins. Our first batch of the same bags was born, a nice combination of materials, which will be become even more beautiful over time.
All Atelier de l'Armée bags are individually numbered and constructed from carefully selected materials. The distinct look of our materials can only be achieved by years of usage, therefore our bags may have stains, small repairs, erros, stamps or other natural wear. This is all part of our philosophy, it is what makes them special. Our bags are made by hand with great care for detail in our small workshop in Amsterdam. They are build to last and strong enough to hold all your belongings
