Philadelphia Depot Canteen Strapping
During the American Civil War, canteens were slung with either sewn cloth
or specilly woven webbings like the one offered here, once made for the
Office of Clothing & Equipage at Schuylkill Arsenal. Our exact reproduction
is taken from a strap on a corrugated canteen in a private collection,
one of many canteens distributed by the Philadelphia Depot from 1862 until
the war ended. Faithful to the original in every way, our one inch wide
natural cotton is shuttle loomed from the same 20 weight/2 ply yarns,
and sports a five panel herringbone twill interrupted at each panel by
a horizontally ribbed bar. The light weight and feel of this tape is true
to originals in several museums and personal collections.
