Before the automobile, travel in the arid regions of this country was by horse and camel, in strings that were drawn out behind a lead rider. The soft pad of a dromedary foot on sand or the clomp of a horses' hoof were often the only accompaniment to the slosh of water in a can and the creak and shift of leather on beast over long hours of travel. 

Can has been inspired by a ubiquitous piece of gear from this age -  the horses' watercan – and realised using the vocabulary and materials of saddlery.

A full grain bridle leather has been employed in combination with saddlers hardware to produce a bag of high function and durability, predominantly hand stitched using hand-rolled linen thread. A traditional strap and staple closure affords security between destinations and a simplicity of function on arrival.

Can is the perfect sized overnight bag for your dress shoes, shaving kit and a change of clothes. A single internal pocket provides for documents.

Each bag is handmade to order by James B Young in his Alice Springs workshop. Please allow up to 6 weeks for the delivery of your bag from the time of purchase.
