Hawk Studio – Field Bag – 8 x 10


I know it has been awhile since I posted any of Chip’s latest work.  Part of that is that he has been busy posting it on his new Etsy shop – which you can find at http://www.etsy.com/shop/HawkStudio

He had also been busy at the Resource Center Exhibition of his work every Thursday for the past two months – but I finally got him back so I can show off his work again.

Here is one of his most recent Field Bags.

This bag is made using a lighter weight (5/6 oz.) vegetable tanned leather using a buckskin dye and a deer antler cinch closure with a deerskin round braid.

The dye technique used was a striated technique which I love in this color.  Like all of his bags, this one too is completely hand-stitched.

The stitched loop strap attachment allows for a more flexible strap.  This one is connected to both the side and the back of the bag.

This bag also features a contrasting/complementing dye on the sides, strap and attachments in a light brown.  The bag is 8″H x 10″W x (approx) 3″D.  Because the bag is wet molded to give additional room in the bag, the depth varies throughout the bag.

Open, you can see the single layer construction and the cross-stitch detail in the front (as well as the signature inside the flap).

The bag has an interior divider stitched into the back seam.

The shoulder strap is of a double mystery braid construction and allows the bag to be worn both across the body or hung to the side.

 This bag retails at $220.00 plus shipping and is available on the above Etsy site.  If you get a chance, take a look at what he is doing.  He also set up a Facebook page for Hawk Studio – if you get a chance please “Like” the site as Facebook is running a program to give small business free advertising space based upon how many people “Like” their site.  We could use it so PLEASE Like it and tell your friends.

I am really glad that I am finally able to once again share with you my beloved husband’s work.  I got lucky when I found him!
