Back in January 2010 the owner went to a congress, met up with old friends, saw some sights; you know the deal. Well, the organization putting on the congress provided attendees with a 'welcome' package which included a nice messenger style bag.  It had a pocket for a cell phone, three pen pockets, pockets for business cards or credit cards, as well as a roomy main cabin that sleeps anything from a laptop to several large books.

The owner and the rest of us here thought it such a nice bag we had a version made for us in strong cotton canvas, sewn with cotton thread for solid dyeing.  Without further ado, we give you ... the Congress Bag!

100% strong durable cotton canvas, sewn with cotton thread so they can be dyed. Also a fantastic canvas for transfers, silk screening, fabric painting and other embellishment.

**Keep in mind that even though very strong, canvas is a large thread fabric, so can fray easily. Canvas also shrinks a lot in hot washer/dryer. We recommend hand washing these canvas bags because they don't fare well in the washing machine.

We loved the look of this bag and ordered two as samples. We still love the look of this bag but we wish the description had mentioned that they need to be washed delicately. They frayed really badly when we pre-washed them. Then we checked other canvas items and saw the warning to handle them very gently. Wish we'd seen it sooner.

These bags are the perfect size. The straps are magnificently long and they dye very well. Why not 5 stars? They frayed around some of the edges and inside the pockets making them look worn even though they were new. I don't mind but it was unexpected. I will most certainly be ordering more of these when I can. :)

I tried for years to carry a purse (always returning to a small backpack) and finally stuck with this one for its great functionality and ability to carry larger items when I needed it to. Only complaints are that the hookloop closures have not held up over time and I also experienced the fraying in some areas even though I handled it gently.

Style is great. Some of the seams were not well sewn. Seems sturdy. Can't wait to have someone buy it!
