FAQs


CAN I ORDER MORE COMPONENTS?

We plan to make them available over the next few months on our website. Making individual components available is actually quite a large undertaking in parallel with our initial mass production run of the Art Satchel and Field Case.

    WHAT DOES WATER-RESISTANT MEAN?

    Water-resistant is not the same as water-proof. Water-proofing is achieved by ultrasonically welding plastic panels together to create a watertight membrane - an extremely expensive undertaking that would likely triple or quadruple the price of our products if used. Water-resistance means that the item has a higher likelihood of keeping your possessions dry.

    The Polyester shell covering the outer surface of our products is waterproof and the Toughtek covering high-wear areas is waterproof. The zips and stitching are water-resistant.

    All these features work to greatly minimise moisture entering the internal compartments and damaging your belongings and art. However, the Etchr Art Satchel and Field Case, cannot be classified as waterproof strictly speaking.

    WHAT IS YOUR PRODUCT MADE OF? IS IT VEGAN FRIENDLY?

    Externa Material: Dark Grey Polyester with Black Toughtek front flap accent and Toughtek for hardwearing areas 
    Internal Material: Felt, Ripstop Material 
    Yes both our Art Satchel and Field Case are vegan friendly.

    DOES YOUR ART SATCHEL / FIELD CASE COME IN DIFFERENT SIZES AND COLORS?

    At this stage only they all come in one color ("Dark Like My Soul") and one size (please refer to individual product page for more details).

    WHAT SIZE LAPTOPS / TABLETS WILL THE ART SATCHEL HOLD?

    The Art Satchel is designed to carry a smaller tablet in the removable Storage Caddy or a larger tablet / laptop in the laptop sleeve or in the main compartment. The maximum outer tablet/ laptop dimensions that the Art Satchel can hold (in the main compartment) are 14.9 x 11.8 x 1.5 inch (38 x 30 x 3.5cm). For your convenience, we created a sizing sheet for some common devices to help you decide whether yours will fit. 

    WHAT SIZE PAPER WILL THE ART SATCHEL / FIELD CASE SUPPORT?

    The Art Satchel is designed to support A4 size traditional mediums however some people have made a few minor alterations to their satchels to support larger sizes (e.g. A3).

    The Field Case is designed to comfortably fit 3.5” x 5.5” 48-Page memo books like those crafted by Field Notes. The long format also allows it to comfortably fit the Field Notes ‘Front Page’ 5.75” x 8” reporter notebooks.

    HOW DO DIFFERENT MODES OF THE ART SATCHEL WORK?

    Our Art Satchel is flexible and modular in design to help accommodate various needs and scenarios. Our co-founder Darren has prepared a detailed explanation video to walk you through the functionalities available in different modes.
