Check it Out: Artifact Bag Co.

Whether it’s because of the economy or an increased focus on healthy eating, a lot of us at the Hart Schaffner Marx offices in NYC and Chicago and turned to bringing our lunch from home. But now that saving money with homemade sandwiches is increasingly popular, we’ve realized you can’t show up to the office kitchen with any old lunchbox or brown paper bag.

Bag your lunch in style. The Artifact Bag Co. No. 215 Lunch Bag, $65, available at

There is finally a solution that lets you carry your lunch to work like a grown up. The Artifact Bag Co. canvas lunch tote is a modern approach to the old brown paper bag. It is handmade from waxed canvas and American made Horween leather. The bag is handmade in Omaha Nebraska, pieced together using solid copper rivets, which give it a clean look. It comes in a variety of color combinations, from brown to olive.

Artifact Bag Co. was launched in February of 2010 by Chris Hughes, who quit his job and first used a vintage sewing machine he purchased on Craigslist to assemble the line’s first bags. Visit
