FALL 2009 - John Fluevog Shoes
As long as there have been shoes, there have been bags. "Many years ago I discovered that people needed shoes, so I started designing and producing unique soles for unique souls", says John. "More recently, we learned that people also needed bags - it was only natural that we would increase our offering to include these items - it's like the yin and yang, it just made sense."
After many years of producing the best bags in the world, John Fluevog is pleased to announce the introduction of the Frontier Bags to partner the recently unveiled Frontier Shoe Family. Like the shoes and boots, the Frontier bags have that unmistakable old world look and feel. Both the Tote and the Map styles were designed in Vancouver and hand made in Mexico using carefully selected veggie-tanned leathers. The lining consists of natural linens and excessive hardware was purposely avoided wherever possible to maintain a clean, natural look.
Frontier Tote Bag
This unisexy bag features Classic Fluevog Frontier Swirls at the base of the handles and can be used as both a shoulder bag, or a carrying bag. Convenient inside pockets can be used for whatever your heart desires, while the main compartment fits an 18" laptop (or a set of 18" cutting boards for that matter). Estimated retail prices: $269US, $345CA.
Frontier Map Bag
This unisexy satchel style bag also has Frontier swirl handles, in addition to a classic Fluevogian Swirl detail on the front flap. The Map bag has 3 useful exterior pockets on the outside (one on the back and two under the flap), interior pockets for all your favourite map-reading tools and can comfortably hold and caress a 15" laptop or geography textbook. As with most Fluevog designs, John imprinted a secret message on the bottom as a treat. Estimated retail prices: $315US, $400CA.
