About Us


CANVAS BAG MACHINE, Handcrafted For Life . . . 
  Our grandmother Rose began sewing canvas bags and awnings in the 1950's in Greenwich, Connecticut.  She moved to Lincolnville, Maine in the 1970's where she continued to sew year after year.  With her ability to create canvas bags, luggage, and even beach pails, Rose created a lifestyle for herself and her family that would live on.
As third generation stitchers, we at CANVAS BAG MACHINE carry on our grandmother Rose's tradition of creating simple, functional and classic canvas bags for every lifestyle.  With our commitment to quality fabrics and construction , we are preserving a family mold while modernizing a classic idea.  They are as relevant today as they were the day Rose started making them in the 50's. 
. . . and so our story continues with every stitch.  Our hand sewn bags are made for our family as much as for yours.  We hope you let CANVAS BAG MACHINE's ambitious and timeless bags accompany you on your adventures and become a part of the story you create.                     
CANVAS BAG MACHINE bags are sewn by us in our studio and still MADE IN NEW ENGLAND.
