New Release: The Best Made Ditty Bag
The Best Made Ditty Bag: designed by Best Made in our lower Manhattan workshop, manufactured in the USA. Reinforced waxed canvas and solid brass grommets, secured by a rope lanyard that has been hand-spliced and whipped with red technical control line. Our ditty is teeming with maritime tradition but built for our customer’s exacting demands today.
Below is a detailed list of specifications which we hope will help to inform you and empower you to use this bag to its utmost, with confidence and gusto.
- Constructed from 10.10 oz Waxed Canvas. Produced by the Martin Company for the better part of a century, this tightly-woven cotton fabric is impregnated with Martexin® wax which provides resistance to inclement weather and produces a handsome patina over time. The wax consists of food and pharmaceutical waxes, making it completely non-hazardous. The Martin family has been making American textiles since 1838, and their waxed fabrics have outfitted countless outdoorsmen, soldiers, and farmers for generations.
- Solid bronze 3” corrosion-resistant snap hook (particularly good around seawater).
- #4 Brass Grommets, conforms to all US military specifications
-Each ditty bag is eye-spliced and finished by hand with traditional methods by seasoned New England rope workers. This labor-intensive step results in the strongest, most seamless finish available.
-Woven in Europe’s western lowlands by rope makers with four centuries of experience, this 3-strand polyester rope has a soft touch and good grip, while having a breaking load of 1,000 kg. It is pre-stretched to prevent elongation, and with high UV-resistance, was typically used as halyard and sheet ropes on classic fishing boats.
-The classic 3-strand splice has been whipped by hand using a high-strength, low-stretch control line. Braided from Dyneema SK75 ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene, this is one of the strongest man-made fibers. Designed to maintain all properties, even when wet, this line also benefits from a high UV-resistance.
-Our Ditty is double stitched along the main seam with heavy nylon size 92 thread and reinforced along the base for reliable durability.
