You cherish the Field Bag and never leave home without it. You love the durable Porter Bin for both its stowaway and getaway abilities. And yet you’ve wanted something with the capacity of the Porter and companionability of the Field — oh, and you’d like it to stand in for your purse on occasion, too! I’ve been wanting the same and have thought long and hard about how exactly to make it the best of both and yet wholly its own. And I'm so happy to finally share it with you: the new Town Bag!
The Town is literally a larger Field Bag in that it’s the same weight of canvas and same interior pockets (just a bit wider, and no grommets) as the original Field. In addition to the tote-style handles, it also has exterior front and back pockets in waxed canvas that wraps under the bottom for protection and creates a subtle tone-on-tone effect, both in the color and character of the two fabrics. The drawcord, webbing and interior pockets are all in natural. And it has an amazingly satisfying heft and feel in the hand when loaded with your yarn, pattern and tools.
It has roughly the same interior capacity as a Porter Bin
Waxed canvas — used here for the exterior pockets and bottom — is a very special fabric, which by its nature shows the crinkles and scuffs in the surface (think of the difference between paper and waxed paper), giving it a distinctive look, which is most apparent on the cocoa bag and least apparent on the black.
