Reinforced waxed canvas and solid brass grommets, secured by a rope lanyard that has been hand-spliced and whipped with a red technical control line. Our ditty is teeming with maritime tradition but built for our customer's exacting demands today. We designed this bag to keep personal effects safe: be they tools, camera equipment, a change of clothes, valuables, or general gear. We wanted a bag for camp and travel that could be easily hooked to a branch or a bunk, and at a moment's notice be slung over the shoulder, or tossed in a duffle.

Originally the ditty would have been the first test of an apprentice sailmaker or seaman: before he could be trusted with the fabrication of a sail, he had to prove his mettle by making his own ditty bag out of sailcloth.
