Sling bag

A sling bag is a medium bag that is unstructured and worn across the body with a wide strap. The bag is normally made from cotton or cloth and may feature many patterns and prints often focusing on an African styled patterned. In the late 1990s and early 2000’s, the sling bag was designed differently, being worn on the back by both men and women in a smaller format with design features and in different fabrics.
