Inspired by my favorite section of the military during WW2, here’s a unique USAAF laundry bag. The way I painted, is 100% vintage style and weathered.
In the back it has a beautiful vintage US flag, with labels: Property, US Government.
I pay close attention to where I get my bags. So, I handpick them myself and later wash them with care. I buy them through different military surplus sellers or thrift stores. But, I always pick vintage items that have history and sign of wear such as: markings, holes or traces of rust, which make them even more beautiful and authentic.
Painting Method On USAAF Bag
This bag is 100% hand painted. It takes a couple of days to paint the bag from front to back.
To apply the paint on the bag I trace my custom design on the bag and start to paint. I use Speedball paint and different brushes to get a distressed finish. Each bag is unique!
You’re getting an art piece, that no machine can reproduce.
Care for your USAAF Bag
It’s preferable that you don’t wash the bag. Even if it was heat pressed, it’s best not wash it and keep it rugged. However, if you do stain it, just use a wet cloth and gently rub it. It should be ok!
USAAF Hand Painted Packaging Method
Packaging is the last and most important part of the design process. Since this bag is all hand painted, it’s only natural to have the same method applied to its packaging.
I use a recycled brown paper bags that I customize just for you. I lock the packaging with a military wax seal until it reaches you. Every single detail, has a countless hours of hand work.
