The musette's firmly back in fashion these days, and Dene from il Soigneur can take as much of the credit for that as anyone. He's been quietly building a reputation for making good quality bags and now you can spec your own unique musette on the il Soigneur website.
It's simple: just head over to ilsoigneur.cc/build_a_bag and make your choices. There's nearly 30 different fabrics to choos from for the exterior of your bag and about the same number for the liner. Pick a strap design from a selection of seven, and a colour for the poppers; you can have all three different colors if you like. il Soigneur will build up the bag to your spec and send it out to you; depending on the materials chose it'll be just less than, or just over, £30.
If you can't quite get what you want from the online system then you can download a template and suggest a more complex design, although obviously you'll be paying extra for that. Given that the standard custom bags are £28, the same as il Sogneur's Team Musette, they don't seem like a bad deal to us. Happy tinkering!
