Superior Labor x Nomado Store Paint Shoulder Bag Large SE - Leather Bottom

Please notify me when this product is available:

This is a special edition version of an already very special bag!

Check out our video review of the Paint Shoulder Bag Large here.

Leather bottom rather than paint. TSL use a tough but thin and supple leather for the bottom, which keeps the bag lightweight but will protect it from wear for a long time. These bags are entirely made by hand.

We've always had a soft spot for the popular Small Paint Bag, one of our bestselling TSL items. Beautifully-made and cute-looking, it's only disadvantage is it's inherent compactness.

We also felt that there was a need for a Unisex messenger bag or satchel in the Superior Labor range.

This Paint Shoulder Bag Large is a scaled up version of the classic Small Paint bag. The Large is sized for portability but is large enough to offer convenient storage.

The Large is fitted with the usual double inside pocket for your smartphone, wallet and other sundries.The main compartment offers lots of space for larger items.

Use a Croots medium camera insert to transform it into a beautiful camera bag.

Every Paint Bag Large is fitted with a solid brass "Lucky Turtle" logo badge, which is made for us by The Superior Labor in Japan and is discreetly hidden under the top flap.

These bags are made from the finest Kurashiki canvas- only 150 feet can be woven on shuttle looms per day, raw brass hardware - produced in a traditional casting factory in downtown Tokyo and vegetable – tanned Japanese leather – slowly and carefully tanned with mimosa extract. The robust canvas will become supple with use, the leather will darken and take on its own patina.


  • When new, the leather bottom may seem slightly darker than the flap, this difference, if visible will fade with time as the vegetable tanned leather darkens naturally.
  • For practical reasons, the leather bottom and all-leather versions do not include the full height pocket provided with the paint bottom version of this bag.
