Limited Edition Peter Fasano Drawstring Bags by The Carson Bag Made in USA
In the early 1970's, Peter Fasano graduated as a design student from the Parson's School of Design in Manhattan. He planned on practicing his skills as a design professional, but in 1973 as a member of the Art Students League of New York he was encouraged to pursue an interest in painting. Peter still has his first painting, a piece of canvas that he stapled to the floor and completed over a two-month period. The painting led him to the realization that repeated patterns were what he found most interesting and fulfilling.
The Carson Bag offers a Peter Fasano Limited Collection of loosely-drawn and playful designs. Like all materials used in the Carson Bag, Fasano’s are of high quality. These fabrics are hand screened in Great Barrington, Massachusetts in an ecologically and environmentally-friendly studio.
The Carson Bag is inspired by Carson Smith and the paratroopers of the 173rd Airborne Brigade. Imagine: a paratrooper's rucksack—its function and durability depend on high standards for its material and construction. The Carson Bag begins with this fundamental premise and it does not disappoint.
Carson bags are designed and constructed to withstand the rigors of everyday use. They are lightweight and roomy enough to hold all essentials including a laptop or an ipad. Made in the USA by a master craftsman using time honored bench made methods, these bags are produced in luxurious leathers, top-of-the-line composite fabrics, uniquely custom printed laminated linen, and traditionally woven canvases.
In a world of mass production we look to carve out a space where individuality is respected and encouraged. The vibrant colors of the bags captivate the eye and the quality of materials inform the touch.
