The Gorges Bag
6.5”H x .5”D x 13.75”L, 41” removable strap
The Gorges Bag is one of the first bags I ever made. It is so timeless and useful. It is small enough for just the essentials, but keep in mind that it fits more than you would think! The other neat feature of this bag is that it converts to a clutch by simply removing the shoulder strap. I wear this bag on the reg and fetch lots of compliments from the simplicity of it! It makes me really understand why it is still so popular.
All Carrie George bags are hand sewn. Why does that matter? Good question. Hand sewing a bag takes longer, but ensures an extremely solid interlocking of the thick waxed thread. This makes the bags able to hold up to lots of weight and years of wear. The hand-sewn stitches are a trademark of CG leather, we do not use machines in the sewing, we even hand sew in the zippers.
