Product Details

Currently located in Boston, Massachusetts, the Steele Canvas Basket Corporation started in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in 1921 as a producer of buggies, hampers, bags and bins. Longtime fans of the company's American heritage and famously tough industrial roots, we asked the brand to recreate a classic model from its line for us. In an exclusive-to-J.Crew twist, each tote has a leather base and an archival stencil. Crafted in Steele's famously thick cotton canvas with a removable, adjustable shoulder strap, it's more than capable of handling anything you throw at it. (These guys make the bags for armored cars, so we're pretty sure they can handle your gym clothes and daily cargo.)

  • Canvas with leather base.
  • Snap closure.
  • Made in the USA.
  • Due to the leather treatment process, the base of each bag will be slightly different.

Steele Canvas Basket Corp.™ for J.Crew coal bag

Steele Canvas Basket Corp.™ for J.Crew coal bag is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful heavy duty, classic STEELE brand. Purchased about two months ago and the beautiful veg tan leather is now just beginning to darken. Will likely become a golden tan with future wear. Top quality heavy weight canvas, chrome hardware, and thick leather strap. Looks and feels indestructible. Amazing craftsmanship from the USA company STEELE (been around since 1921), especially rare to find a product of this caliber now days. An heirloom piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Built like a tank Beach or farmer's market? Doesn't matter. This thing handles it. The leather strap is very comfortable and does not dig into your shoulder so if you're carrying a heavy load you should be fine. Looking forward to years of beach trips with this bag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy, classic not trendy bag. I have seen other reviews that talk about the leather being too light and there is a simple fix for that, it's called mink oil or saddle soap. These products condition, soften and waterproof smooth leather and they also help to darken lighter leather such as is on this bag. This bag is sturdy and wonderfully made but I also agree with others in that it should have an inside pocket so I'll likely take the liberty to have a friend sew a small in mine. Overall I'm very pleased with the bag.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from too big to be practical High quality, truly well made of good materials, and in good style, however very stiff(fabric and strap) and too large. :(

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Misleading photo The bag's lower portion is not the tan leather depicted. It's a wimpy off-white color that belies the style of this wonderful canvas bag that goes back to old plumber's tool bags. I spoke with customer service to correct the issue and exchanged it twice, but always with the same result. This bag shows great promise, but delivers a disappointing outcome.
