Tenue de Nimes have teamed up with Paolo Bellini, a Dutch vintage aficionado and founder of CS Bell. Bellini has created a very exclusive series of handmade canoe packs for the Dutch denim store produced in Amsterdam, and made of thick canvas and leather. The heavy, army green canvas has been treated with a precise mixture of wax and parafine to resist bad weather and water in particular while the shoulder straps are made of bridle leather, each four millimeters thick, that have been riveted on the pack by hand. Each bag is stamped with the “CS Bell” name on the inside and a canal green & beige Tenue de Nîmes expedition patch is placed between the shoulder straps referring to the traditional Amsterdam green color, often used to paint the bridges over the canals in the city center. The packs are now available exclusively through Red Wing Shoes in Amsterdam, priced at €299,90.
