Introducing the Town Bag (and more!)

Introducing the Town Bag project bag by Fringe Supply Co.

Today is the day you’ve been impatiently awaiting! The much requested “bigger Field Bag” is finally here, and its name is the Town Bag. But it’s much more than just a scaled up Field Bag. The Town Bag combines the capacity of the Porter Bin with the companionability of the Field Bag, made even better by the addition of external pockets (front and back) in coordinating waxed canvas, which wraps underneath for protection and gives a subtle tone-on-tone effect. (Most apparent in the cocoa/pecan colorway; least apparent in the black/black.) And it can handle a sweater quantity, pattern and tools, as well as accommodating your wallet, comb and keys for those times when your knitting bag needs to double as your handbag. I’ve been using it since summer, traveling with it and putting it through its daily paces, and I know you’re going to love it as much as I do! You can get it now in both cocoa and black at Fringe Supply Co.; black is also available through our stockists; and natural is coming later this month.

We also have the last batch of coveted waxed plum Field Bags (until next year) in the webshop this morning, so if you’ve been waiting for that one, don’t hesitate!

And today I’ve also got a whole new lookbook for you! For this year’s Winter Lookbook and for the launch of the Town, we actually went to the country and created the ideal yarn-filled winter staycation at the beautiful Bloomsbury Farm — shooting in both farmer Lauren’s house (that bathtub!) and the Airbnb above the stables. I hope you’ll enjoy a stroll through the photos — they’re some of my favorites yet.

And there’s another holiday surprise hiding in the pages of the lookbook, too, so go check it out!

Happy weekend, everyone! I’ve got some serious sleeping to do this weekend, along with a bit of seaming

  1. The larger bag looks great. Could you make darker handles an option? The light ones can start looking soiled very quickly as natural oil from the hands attracts and holds dirt. I’ve tried washing canvas bags (the old LL Bean boat totes) with limited success and try to keep mine clean. Is there a good way to wash?

  2. Your holiday bag is especially beautiful, as is the Lookbook in general. Lovely all.

  3. You’ve done it again!!!! The Town Bag is just gorgeous and oh-so-functional! I can’t wait to get one!

  4. Looooooove! The whole lookbook is gorgeous and can’t wait to get my Town to add to the collection! <3

  5. The new holiday edition toffee Hank field bag…now my Christmas present to my self has been decided….I think!

  6. Fantastic Lookbook. I’m sure we all want to go somewhere like that and live that life with those lovely things, just knitting and knitting in the peace and calm.

    • Sometimes it’s SO hard to take things apart after we’ve gotten the shot. The shelves of bags and yarn next to the bed is one that I really wanted to live on for all time. I need to teach Lauren to knit so that can be real!

  7. Gorgeous Look Book! Makes me happy just looking at the pictures (over and over.) What fun that must have been to create. And, I see, the Town Bag is sold out! Not a surprise…

  8. Can you show the toffee Field Bag next to the cocoa Town Bag? I am wondering how the shades of brown compare..

  9. How do you do it? Every time you release a new catalog, I just want to dive into its pages and live there. I just checked your French stockist and they have it in black, along with the Field Bag in yellow I’ve been coveting for months, because it is the same color as the new paint on my office walls. Soon hopefully. Might be my next present to myself.

  10. The new bags look BEAUTIFUL. I carry my waxed canvas field bag everywhere and I’m eyeing the porter bin. Is there any hope for a waxed canvas porter bin in the future? I love that after a few months of very heavy use, my field bag still looks just as clean as on the first day (but more supple and more beautiful). Thank you!

  11. Love, love, love the new bag! Definitely on my Christmas wish list. Where did you get you jacket in the first picture? It’s gorgeous!
