According to historians, the word "picnic" derives from the French "pique-nique" that became popular in the latter half of the 17th century, describing the gourmands who would bring their own wine when they dined out. Essentially they were early BYOB trendsetters. It was much earlier, however, when eating luxurious meals in the outdoors was popular, most likely during the Middle Ages. It was at this point when hunting became not just a means of survival, but a favorite past time of the leisure class. Picnics have not changed much over time, but have definitely got less luxurious, so why not bring back that touch of luxury with this stylish, vintage Lunch Bag.
Waxed canvas is an ancient material, one of the oldest, in fact, and is still in use nowadays. It really is exemplary of a material that is tried, tested and true over time. Originating in Scotland in the 1850's waxed canvas was created for and by seafarers and mariners, by rubbing linseed oil into the cloth. This resulted in an incredibly durable fabric that repelled water, a popular choice for the sails and clothing of the sailors who ruled the waves. Being lightweight and durable, waxed canvas became the clothing of choice for the British Navy, Army and Air force during the Second World War, an attribute no other military possessed at that time.
Fast forward to today, and the wax is no longer rubbed onto the canvas. Instead the canvas is made with the oil embedded into the fibers, which allows the material to grow old with style and grace. The use of the fabric is now world wide, and is becoming more fashionable rather than sporty, all the while retaining its rugged personality.
Our canvas comes from the highly respected supplier Lonas Segovia, the oldest canvas maker in Guatemala. The seams are sewn using bonded nylon thread with a burned and melted finish offering no loose ends during your travel.
