New Old Friend

We specialize in small batch, handcrafted, waxed canvas wares - created with water-resistant waxed canvas, cork fabric, 100% cotton linings, and genuine leather accents. Our bags are elevated, functional, durable, and made with one-of-a-kind, high-quality materials.

We offer a wide range of products, including roll-top backpacks, shoulder-slings, crossbody totes, toiletry bags, pouches, and many other items.

Starting with locally sourced beeswax, Kara McGrane prepares the canvas, selects fabric and designs each bag, then proceeds to sew and assemble every item out of her home-studio in Missoula, Montana.

Old friends are always there, whenever you need them. New Old Friend’s line of products provide a similar sense of comfort. Items that you can rely on, and trust to last a lifetime.
