We have been working in the studio a lot.
Waiting on some items to come into the studio to finsh up a lot of bags; waiting on canvas duck cloth and leather to be shipped to me.
In this time waiting for things to coming we have been going over my goals for Choxley.
We are inspired by the functionality and durability for vintage work were/ military clothing. We study this construction to keep with and offer products that are well constructed, skillfully, crafted and have the same durability.
We create handcrafted bags that are made in our small studio in Columbus Ohio. We mix high quality dead stock and/or repurposed materials. We love the use of aged fabrics that have a patina like aged leather. We reach out for unique markings, wear, stamps, stains, repairs and 2nd hand mods that tell a history. We also introduce new materials that can create their own story like raw denims and naked leathers. Because we depend on the materials we at times find we can never make the same bag twice. Our top end bags are individually numbered and come with a handwritten hangtag with its ingredients
Working on the reuse of new items like wool, deadstock Japanese selvage denim and linen.
Also got some US Vietnam issue military duffel bags I am using
We will have a large innovatory of bags soon, Not sure if we will be hosting them on Etsy or will be showing them locally. We’ll try to show them all here.
