In honor of Memorial Day weekend, I thought it would be appropriate to celebrate with a giveaway.
This is one of the original prototype Galen Leather Writer’s Media Bag in Crazy Horse Forest Green (retail price $219). The gang at Galen gave this to me at the DC Pen Show a couple years ago. I have been holding on to it for the perfect opportunity and THIS IS IT.
The Writer’s Medic Bag is designed for modern pen folk but is based on vintage medic messenger bags. It was the last design Zeynep created and on Memorial Day weekend, it seemed appropriate to remember not just Zeynep but all the people who gave so much of themselves to the pen community.
The bag features lots of loops for pens, slots for cards and ephemera and the magnetic opening makes it easy to see all the items in your bag when you arrive at your destination.
This bag is all-leather in my favorite Crazy Horse Forest Green. The leather is pre-distressed so there are marks and scratches and tonal variations built into the leather. I love this look and it means you don’t have to worry about scratching the leather — it’s already been done. Rubbing it with a soft cloth or even the pad of you hand will diminish any big scratches easily.
The bag includes a clippable keychain and the Galen signature leather tag.
The strap is long enough to carry the bag crossbody and there is a stud mechanism to adjust the strap length.
This is a prototype and may vary slightly from the final production version. The bag has not been used but has hung around the studio as eye candy so may be sprinkled with a cat hair or two and a dollop of dust. Will be packed well but does not include original Galen packaging.
