Like its namesake, the traditional Aboriginal bag, this bag is large enough to carry your daily essentials yet small enough not to get in the way. It is made of the heavyweight oilskin used in Driza-Bone’s riding coats. The interior is lined in cotton. The size is 11 inches by 4 inches with a height of 8 inches. The top flap snaps shut for protection. The adjustable shoulder strap has 7 grommets used to adjust the strap length from 30 inches to 56 inches. Made in Australia.

  • Care of Waxed Cotton
    Waxed cotton should never be washed with soap or detergent, nor dry cleaned. Rinse off dirt with cool water, or lightly brush off dry dirt. Rewax occasionally with reproofing compound such as the Driza-Bone Garment Dressing, all over every year or two, more frequently on areas of wear, such as cuffs or sleeves.
  • Driza-Bone
    Driza-Bone is an Australian icon in riding coats, much as Akubra is in hats, recognized not only in Australia but also throughout the world for quality, practicality and the Australian flair. The name Driza-Bone (Stryne for "Dry as a Bone") was registered in 1933, around the time the waxed cotton cloth was developed in Britain to replace the old cloth coated with linseed oil. We are pleased to offer a range of goods by Driza-Bone.
  • Dilly Bags

    Dilly bags are the traditional Australian Aboriginal small bags carried around the neck. Usually woven from plant fibers these bags are used to carry food, or hold personal or tribal artifacts. The name comes from the Jagera word for the bag and fiber, "dili".

    The term has evolved in Australia to include small bags used by non-Aboriginal Australians, for instance a small bag for food carried by swagmen. The style and usefulness of this Driza-Bone Dilly Bag follows that of its namesake.
