The MF® “Musette” pattern is our interpretation of the M1892 haversack issued to French troops from the late 1800’s to the mid 1930’s. These “bread bags” were mostly used for carrying provisions. Soldiers on the front lines frequently carried two, packed with a loaf of bread, saucisson, and the daily ration of Père Pinard (250ml in 1914, 500ml in 1916… and a full 1/4 galon bottle by 1918) to numb the gruesome reality…
To compliment our “PIOUPIOU” capsule collection, we issued a modified version in a dark navy blue waxed cotton canvas. We have added an inner dividing panel. The custom chainstitched “mf 7161” Musette adornment, embroidered on a vintage hand-cranked CORNELY machine, is a reference to French military wool blanket markings of the period. The flap is unlined but is backed by a large blank cotton muslin patch, ready for personal markings.
Note: This is anunstructured bag. It is not padded and should not be considered as shock-proof protective carrying sleeves for laptop computers or iPads.
