The eastern box turtle is native to the eastern United States. They get their name from their domed, hinged shell that they can retract into when they feel threatened. Although they are called “turtle,” they are more like tortoises, as they are not swimmers. They are considered vulnerable, and in most states it is illegal to take them from the wild and to keep as a pet.

Our Eastern Box Turtle Field Bag is designed to hold a field guide, keys, wallet, and water bottle. These bags are perfect for birdwatchers, hikers, zoo docents, or your favorite nature enthusiast. Made of 100% hand-loomed cotton, all bags have a 1.5" black nylon webbing strap (adjustable to 62"), side pen holder, and back zipper pocket. Roomy enough to fit a small field guide and water bottle or a larger guide like The Sibley Guide to Birds. The bag's interior is scoop-shaped, making it easy to quickly grab your field guide before that bird flies away. Bag dimensions: 8" wide x 10" tall with a 2" gusset. Handmade with love by women artisans in Nepal who have been empowered to lift themselves out of poverty through dignified work. Fair trade.
