Large, thick and heavy cotton USPS mail bag. Marked "Domestic U.S. Mail 3 (on one side and) 6 - 79 (on the other side). Cool details include metal grommets and cotton rope with a working metal clasp. There are stains, scuffs, and 3 minor holes on 1 side. Please see the last picture. These holes could be patched on the inside with iron on fabric and give a few stitches over it to secure. We wanted to keep the integrity of the bag incase this would be used as a prop or styling. This bag could be soaked in oxygenated bleach overnight to remove yellowing or brighten if you wanted. Also adding vintage leather straps (using an old belt), would be really cool to upcycle it as a shopping tote, large rustic messenger bag. Turn it into a shirt, outside liner for a trashcan, cool for an office or art studio, pillow cases, the ideas are endless.
