FALL FASHION MUST IN­CLUDE GREAT BAGS AND THIS SEA­SON, I’M SHAR­ING MY FAVE AR­TI­SAN COL­LEC­TION THAT YOU CAN TAKE EV­ERY­WHERE

We've had a few sea­sons where mid-range bags were unin­spir­ing, lack­ing crafts­man­ship and just plain pre­dictable. Per­son­ally, I've been pin­ing for a qual­ity leather bag that speaks to me - func­tional, fash­ion­able, a de­sign with­out an iden­tity cri­sis that is ready to go on any ad­ven­ture, planned or spur of the mo­ment.

The brain­child of leather de­signer Julie Boocock, Mar­ket Can­vas Leather is a snip of a business that is tucked away on Canada's wild west coast in Tofino, Bri­tish Columbia. Thanks to the in­ter­net, the ge­nius of Mar­ket Can­vas can be added to your fall wardrobe by on­line or­der at mar­ket­can­vas.com. Each Mar­ket Can­vas prod­uct is made to or­der and Julie loves the chal­lenge of a cus­tom or­der - whether you need to mod­ify an ex­ist­ing de­sign or want some­thing al­to­gether you!

The cur­rent col­lec­tion, which in­cludes more than twenty dif­fer­ent pieces, echoes so­phis­ti­cated mod­ernism through min­i­mal­ist de­signs, care­fully con­sid­ered struc­ture and de­cid­edly stylish sil­hou­ettes.

What I love about Mar­ket Can­vas is the qual­ity of the leather hides, which are eth­i­cally sourced, of­ten from Bri­tish Columbia. Hand­crafted, no two bags will ever be ex­actly alike, which I must ad­mit I re­ally love! I travel a lot and be­cause of the nat­u­ral state of the fin­ished prod­ucts, my Flip bag and Week­ender will age grace­fully and de­velop more and more char­ac­ter as my jour­ney con­tin­ues.
