Knitty Gritty - Original
Make your knitting projects the talk of the town with the original Knitty Gritty bag (nice name, right?). Crafted in Athens, Georgia with waxed canvas and leather handles, this handmade bag is designed to make knitting projects a breeze. This small but mighty bag will keep your project, yarn, and supplies all safely on the go. This knitting project bag was created to be a simple, classic, and everyday project bag that ages beautifully and gets better with use.
Inside you'll find a pattern pocket with with 3 solid brass grommets designed to hold folded patterns and allow for tangle free knitting on the go; 1 zipper pocket sized at 5.5”wide x 5.5” tall with a slot behind for quick access to phone/keys/etc. ; and 3 slotted pockets for needles, sunglasses, etc. Made with vegetable tanned English bridle leather, which typically used for belts, bags, high-end leather goods and accessories, equestrian gear, and much more. This is a vegetable tanned high quality leather that will soften and develop a beautiful patina with age.
Vegetable-tanned leather has the longevity and beauty only an artisanally-crafted product can sustain. It is typically found in high end leather goods, equestrian gear, belts, wallets, and shoes. The vegetable tanning process is a long and artisanal one in which the hide is tanned using tree bark and other organic materials for up to 2 months. While this type of leather is stiff in the beginning, it gets more and more supple with time and use, and will become more comfortable the longer you use it. This is the leather that forms that beautiful aged patina that gets better with time.
The backside of the leather handles are edged and beveled - meaning they are run through a machine that rounds the back edges. This removes any sharp edges and makes the handles very comfortable to touch from the start.
We recommend that you do not leave this bag in a hot car or in front of a heater, as the wax will melt.
