Artifact Bags Crossbody Shoulder Bag Gift

The Crossbody Shoulder Bag from Artifact Bags in slate wax canvas and cordovan leather – a stylish picnic accessory for the warmer months ahead.


Whether it's the hard-earned skill that goes into them or the personal story they carry, handmade items make for special gifts. Mother's Day is just a week away, and it's not too late to pick out a crafted piece that she will be sure to cherish.

Buying directly from a maker can also help support them during this time of marketplace disruption, making your gift impactful in more ways than one.
