The Marlowe Carryall
Peg & Awl
The Marlowe Carryall is a reusable ‘paper bag’ constructed of waxed canvas and WWII leather – ideal for carrying anything from books and daily necessities to groceries. The Carryall is constructed like a super market brown bag and made to last. It fits comfortably over the shoulder, and is finished with a little pocket on the inside for small things such as lip balm, money, a cell phone, &c.
Constructed waxed canvas originated in the sailing industry in Scotland in the 1920s and became widely used in sportswear and apparel because of its waterproofing abilities and superb durability.

Peg & Awl is a husband and wife team, with a boy called Søren and a boy called Silas. They live and work in Philadelphia, Penn. Their work is made from olde things, treasures found and recovered from misfortune and neglect, relics of the unusual, the confused and the macabre, cut and pulled and built into wearable curiosities, inscribable keepsakes and useable, longlasting treasures. They used to make them for themselves, and now they make them for everyone.
