Taking the pop Military fashion trend to the next level, designer Catfluff reconstructed a line of messenger bags created out of authentic Euro Vintage army surplus materials.

The fabulous featured bag was upcycled from a vintage army Czech bread bag. These types of messenger style bags were issued to the soldiers during the cold war and used for their rations. Look for the 1968 date stamped on the inside.  Catfluff styles them to accommodate the urban modern man with his gadgets and laptops.


This is a totally unique concept in bridging trends!  Stitch by stitch, this American European-born designer and seamstress recycles textile scraps and potato sacks to create cutting edge purses, bags, market sacks and accessories.
