1980 Canada Post Mail Bag

Vintage Find

A vintage canvas mail bag, used by the Canadian Postal Service. Canada Post has been using these bags for over a century. We have two bags available, this one marked from 1980, and the other from 1981. This bag has some ware from use, and a patch on both the front and back. Made of highly durable canvas cloth, dated and heat stamped with the royal Canadian emblem. Each bag has a nylon drawstring, secured with a steel fastener. We've given these bags a good soak and cleaning, but as with any vintage fabric, some minor ware from use and aged patina is irreversible. We like the history that comes with old things, and actually think patina is great. Use it to catch scarves and accessories at the front door, as a pillow cover, or just as decoration.

Measures 20" by 21"
