About Us

Hello and welcome! We are Angela and Allon, captains of the Proyager canvas bag ship. Originally founded in Sydney, we lovingly adopted this baby and moved it to Melbourne in late 2015. This passion for stylish hand bags grew from Angela's previous bag making hobby that naturally led to a yearning to build a lifestyle around bags. We feel so lucky to be able to continue the Proyager design legacy, and to share this with you.

We work passionately to combine style, function, quality and affordability into each bag we design. Each bag is crafted from luxurious yet tough wearing canvas trimmed with genuine bovine leather and infused with the natural colours, heart and soul of the diverse people and landscapes of Australia. We use a heavy duty washed canvas of a high quality cotton canvas - polyester blend. Cotton/polyester canvas blends are not only lighter than pure cotton canvas, but have many more fantastic properties you won't find in pure canvas. So, what you get is a canvas bag that is of high strength and durability, shrink resistant, tear resistant, anti UV, flame retardant, water repellant, resistant to mould, with a long-lasting colour dye. We are committed to designing bags of great value with long lasting qualities that support sustainability. You may see some new materials and limited editions pop up from time to time since we love to play with different materials, however canvas is the core of our existence and what we love sharing with you the most.
Our quality canvas collection has the versatility you need to take you from urban to country landscapes, from the office and studies, to everyday social occasions and shopping, right through to those highly anticipated weekends away. Our bags are available in a variety of styles and have great storage capacity to support your study, work, travel, photography and other creative pursuits that feed your soul.

We believe you deserve to carry your belongings day to day with style. The quality workmanship in our bags is reflected in our ethical business practices and respectful trade relationships we have with our overseas manufacturing partners. Each bag we design is produced in small sustainable batches, integral to our slow fashion philosophies. We also support many local Australian businesses in all other purchases we make. In addition to this, all of our print material including swing tags, pop up shop retail shopping bags, business cards, etc are printed on 100% recycled paper. We are continuously looking for ways to improve our business practices and continue to develop new and exciting products that we hope you will love.

Buying a Proyager bag means so much more since you are supporting an Australian owned small business run by caring, fun and friendly people who love to give back to our local communities through voluntary work and monetary contributions to local charitable organisations.
