88th Company vintage Hand Painted Military Bags are fully hand painted with details in mind. I always pick a vintage historical bag and add customize it with complicated hand painted scenes, by sewing handmade leather/fabric patches and by painting with custom made stencils.
Moreover, I distress the item by using sand paper, paint, x-acto knifes, metal brushes, razors and bleach for a true rugged style!
My inspiration comes from WW1 and WW2, when soldiers customized their jackets and accessories. But the trend especially blossomed in WW2, when mass produced planes, vehicles, jackets and bags were customized to look apart.
I’m always thrifting or picking to find the perfect vintage military bag to transform into a one of kind art piece! Wear a story and be the only one to own it.
