Steele Canvas Bag
The Storage Wonder.
"It’s a shame to lock me indoors", this bag almost pleads; "take me with you in the wide world, to the market, the beach or let’s go away for a weekend". And as a shopping bag, it’s scoring additional points with its astonishing volume. If you fill it to capacity, you’ll have to mind your muscles, but you needn’t worry about the tear strength of the bag: in addition to the heavy duck canvas there is a reinforced handle and a double bottom to take care that the vegetables or the milk bottles make it safely back from the market. And the bag will stand dutifully at attention because of the reinforcement which makes it as easy to fill as if it were a wicker basket.
Steele. For They Do Know What They Do.
Learning by doing or missing the mark is what you could call product development at Steele Canvas Basket Corporation in Boston, Massachusetts. The firm has been manufacturing transport containers for hotels and laundries since 1921. The killing pace of that kind of transportation, from the washing machine to the dryer, or across the country from coast to coast calls for baskets and containers that can take a lot of punishment.
Professional Quality at Home.
The same material and processing that go into Steele Canvas products for the industry are used for private use. An extremely rugged cotton fabric, called duck canvas, is stretched over a solid steel frame. The high fabric weight ensures that it will face the roughest treatment int the course of the day. An edging made of cow’s leather (2–3 mm. thick) protects the fabric edge from fraying and provide a convenient gripping surface. It’s carefully sewn and riveted, contributing to the durability of the baskets. Here’s a little fabric history: Duck canvas has nothing to do with Donald Duck or Dagobert or other members of the cartoon clan. The term “duck canvas“ comes from the Dutch “doek“ and indicates originally the sturdy fabric that had to withstand wind and weather on the high seas or in the open fields.
