Vintage Shoulder Bag – BLVD010 men & women fashion accessory, repurposed canvas.
Beautiful printed soft cotton grain sack repurposed to a great city shoulder bag. The “Purina” logo The checkerboard logo then evolved into a personal development concept of founder, William H. Danforth from Gray Summit, Missouri, USA. In 1894, he proposed that four key components in life (“Physical,” “Mental,” “Social,” and “Religious”). He wanted to instill the need to be in balance, and one area was not to develop at expense of the other. The concept became intertwined with the company in 1921, when it began selling feed that was pressed in cubes called “checkers”Purina.
Danforth’s chicken supplement with “22% Lay Chow” cotton grain sack gently used and in very good condition from the 1930’s-1950’s USA. It is now repurposed into a bag with the famous light red and green checkered logo.
To complement the Purina logo, I used a beautiful and soft, cranberry canvas on the back and bottom to compliment the image. The shoulder length handles are of off white leather and the same cranberry canvas sewn onto the front and back with reinforced gun metal rivets.
The lining is a large red, white and grey plaid cotton with contracting cotton fabric for the zipper compartment and 3 pouches. Included, a chunky silver keychain for additional convenience when shopping around town.
Enjoy the BLVD10 antique repurposed bag for daily light shopping around town.
