This isn’t your typical slouchy beach bag – Brooklyn maker Andrew McAteer created a heavy-duty waxed cotton canvas and leather tote with reinforcements to make sure that it stands up (literally) to a day at the beach. Hemp rope hemmed in along the entire top of the bag gives it structure, so that you don’t have to rummage around to find your sunblock. Cut out handles at the top of the tote as well as a natural vegetable-tanned shoulder strap give you different carrying options, depending on if you need a free hand for a beach umbrella or other essentials.
Brush dirt off waxed surface, spot treating with a damp cloth if necessary. Over time, the leather will darken and earn a natural patina with exposure to sunlight and general use. If desired, care for the leather bottom and trims by conditioning periodically with neatsfoot oil or wax, as well as our Beeswax Leather Conditioner. Keep away from moisture and direct sunlight to prevent cracking.
An intrepid traveler, Andrew McAteer found that the available bags, carriers and accessories on the market didn't properly suit his on-the-go gear requirements, and so he began to design and make his own goods. Working out of a small workshop in Astoria, New York, Andrew creates beautiful, timeless products that he needs, and by extension, that others might also find useful.
