C&T Heritage Collection
At C&T, part of the appeal of designing and making the products we sell, is the heritage. In the case of tweed and leather, both have formed part of our local and national history for centuries, and the products we make are a modern extension of a heritage that extends back in time. We have tried to use high-quality heritage materials, but with a modern twist.
Since the early 1800’s, the Cartridge Bag made its way out of the military into field sports and then fashion. The term now describes a small to medium sized shoulder bag, usually with an attractive rounded shape, straight top, and single front flap which can be quickly and easily opened to gain access to the large single main pocket.
Our Cartridge Bag is made from high quality, fine woven Yorkshire tweed, featuring flashes of blue and yellow on a beautiful subtle country green base. Piping and other details, are in a complementary pale mustard tweed, and the bag is lined with a vintage horse-riding theme fabric.
This Cartridge Bag is available as part of our “C&T Heritage” collection. Combined with our unique ‘C&T Heritage’ stamp and solid brass hardware, this is a beautiful, classic design with a modern feel, made to be used on its own, in town or country, or with our other Heritage Collection items.
As always, our items are all made by hand, by us, direct to you. As a result, you can customise as follows:
- The bag is provided with a strap made from the same high quality full-grain veg-tan leather we use for our leads and collars, and you can select the length of the strap from Short (44″/112cm ), Medium (47″/119cm) and Long (50/127cm). The dimensions are for the strap only, and the bag hangs below this, so you can use a tape measure over your shoulder to simulate the strap and see what would work best for you. These are based on cross body wear, i.e. bag across shoulder and neck.
Sizing of the bag is as follows (all sizes are approximate):
- Width: 9″ (23cm)
- Height: 7″ (18cm)
- Depth: 3″ (8cm)
Clearly, as the bag is constructed from fabric, it is perfectly possibly to carry something larger than 3″ deep, as the bag will allow some change in shape to accommodate it.
The internal pockets are sized as follows:
- Internal rear zip pocket: 5″ (12cm) wide x 4 1/2″ (11cm) deep
- Internal front slip pocket: 6 1/2″ (16cm) wide x 5 1/2″ (14cm) deep
Wipe clean with a damp cloth if marked. Do not machine wash.
