Textile tote designer Charlotte McQ went on a mission: was it possible to add strength and durability to the iconic paper market sac we all love to carry. Longevity to McQ was the only quality lacking. After much mucking around with hot wax and a serendipitous background in sailmaking, Brave Brown Bag transformed its paper ancestor using handwaxed cotton on the outside and upcycled sailcloth on the inside. This innovative textile process pioneered by McQ is more akin to pottery she says. BBB is literally baked in a custom built kiln, so BBB has great strength right down to its pinked edge.
Today BBB is still handmade in our studio near Toronto offering a variety of waxed textiles, colours and shapes as well as our upcycled sailcloth Grande Catchall design - a nod to McQs sailing days. Bespoke and collaborations are welcome. Our Covid message is to stay kind, calm and carry on. And of course we invite you to carry our BBB for many years to come.
