ABOUT

After years as a business analyst working in the area of information technology, I left technology to pursue creative opportunities of a different type. One degree from Ontario College of Art and Design later and following a relocation to Antigonish NS, there was a coming together of A. an excess of encaustic medium from various projects, B general explorations in colouring textiles and C a strong interest in making bags. This became Antigonish Bag Company.

PRIMARY MATERIALS

I use unbleached cotton canvas, direct dye, rivets, thread, leather, wax, interfacing, zippers. The most relevant materials are leather and canvas. I prefer to use natural materials and in the case of my waxed canvas bags – unbleached cotton canvas is the right choice because it has the tooth to hold the wax and the wax will be absorbed evenly. The leather holds up well – it ages well, its strong and has the rustic feeling I want for the bags.

SHIPPING POLICY

All orders are shipped via Canada Post using the lowest cost method - this cost varies depending on the region and I may not be able to provide you with a tracking number.

If you're in a hurry, please contact me so we can assess alternate shipping options and cost.

Delivery standards vary. Delivery within Canada is generally 3 - 5 days. US deliveries take between 5-8 days: these are business days and this time doesn't include any time spent in customs. International packages take from 6-10 days to 4-6 weeks.
