Even Crappy Leftovers Will Look Great Packed In The Marlowe Lunch Bag


It’s not the first bag we’ve seen to let you brown bag your lunch in style.  If you haven’t quite found the brown bag alternative to pack your daily meals in, the Marlowe Lunch Bag might just be the one that tickles your fancy.

Created by Peg and Awl, it’s a small sack similar to the brown bags of your grade school days that you can use to pack the leftover pizza, hastily-slapped-together sandwich, or surprisingly-wonderfully-prepared meal you’re bringing to work for the day. Except, instead of being made from paper, it’s cut in a durable canvas material, ensuring you can use it for more than a single day at work.


Designed to tug at your nostalgic heartstrings, the Marlowe Lunch Bag comes with a rustic-looking finish that makes it look like a vintage piece.  Construction is 19-ounce waxed cotton canvas, so apart from being reusable, it sheds water, too, allowing you to simply wipe it down to clean after every end of the day.  Unlike most modern brown bags we’ve seen, it comes with a small exterior pocket, which Peg and Awl recommends it for leaving notes to whoever makes your lunches.  If you pack your own grub, we’re guessing it should be handy for carrying medications you need to drink after meals, too.


Dimensions are 12 x 8 x 5 inches (h x w x d), so there’s plenty of room to carry a lot of food for those days you’re likely to spend a little more time in the office.  It comes in six colors.

Available now, the Marlowe Lunch Bag is priced at $44.

    The waxed cotton canvas used for this bag is vegan friendly! In the long-run this bag will pay for its’ self as you will not need to continuously buy paper bags. I used to use paper bags, but they were constantly tearing open. With this bag you wouldn’t have to worry about it ripping apart. I moved to a traditional lunch box made of aluminum, but I kept forgetting it at the workplace when I got off for the day. I can see the same problem with this bag in that I would forget to take it home occasionally.

    With 6 colors to choose from, you should be able to find one you like. I think each color looks great. The waxed duck canvas is heavyweight and will hold up to daily wear and tear well without getting reippied apart.

    The exterior pocket is a nice little touch. I could put my mini-Tobasco sauce bottle in there.These bags would also make a great gift. You can buy something smaller and then use this bag as the gift bag, so in essence your recipient would get 2 gifts!

    I have seen some similar handcrafted bags like this on Etsy, but the quality did not look near as good as this one. The Marlowe Lunch bag is one of those items that is a sure-buy. You won’t go wrong if you pick one of these up. Click over to Amazon and you’ll be able to see all the gorgeous colors this reusable bag comes in.

    I can see where a lot of people would think spending over 40 bucks just for something to carry your lunch to work or school in is expensive. At the same time, if you consider how much money you’ll spend on bags if you choose to go that route, you’re saving a lot of money in the long run. On top of that, the planet will thank you… just sayin’. These are really stylish and look very durable. I would expect them to last you quite a long time. With 6 colors to choose from, I think I’m going to purchase one for myself and my daughter. We can switch it up each day by swapping bags. So easy to clean, too!
