Intended as a sizable daily workhorse, our Roll Top Messenger takes design cues from our Roll Top and technical cycling bags, but is executed in our top-grade range of natural materials. Features pockets inside and out, a stout leather closure strap, solid brass hardware, and web-reinforced top hem for easy rolling. This is an ideal bag for the cyclist, motorcyclist, fisherman, or anyone else who needs a burly shoulder bag that’s extremely weather-resistant.
Before our Archival intern, Lauren, moved to the bay area, we took a few impromptu snaps of our bags in the alley behind Archival headquarters. We’ve been shooting so many products indoors, under softbox strobes, it was a relief to snap the bags in direct sunlight. Here are a few outtakes from our shoot. And introducing Val and Chase as our latest summer interns (and master bag wranglers).
Over Spring break, Tom and I took some snaps of Archival bags in some of our favorite Eugene locations. We’ll be assembling the shots into a formal lookbook for distribution to stockists and Archival customers. Here are a few sneak previews… and outtakes by Lauren, our much beloved Archival intern.
