Roots Charlotte Bag in True Red: for Canada Day!

We'll celebrate Canada Day on July 1st, and also on July 4th. That's because on July 4th, we get to tell two of you lovelies that you've won a smashing Canada-true-red bag in gorgeous Roots leather!

Why Roots? Because Roots is kind of an amazing connection between Canada and the US. Founders Michael Budman and Don Green are both from Detroit, Michigan; they built their business here in Canada after falling in love with Ontario's Algonquin Park, where they both went to camp as kids.

The cast of Indian Summer: Matt Craven, Kimberly Williams, Kevin Pollock; Bill Paxton, Vincent Spano, Julie Warner; Diane Lane, Alan Arkin, Elizabeth Perkins; Sam Raimi.

Fun fact: in the 1993 movie Indian Summercharacters Matt and Brad are reportedly based on Michael and Don. The movie was filmed at the Algonquin Park camp, Camp Tamakwa, that the pair attended in the late '50s/early '60s.

Also a fun fact: over the years, Roots gear has been spotted on a myriad of high-profile persons, including actors Jason Priestly, Dan Ackroyd, Matt Damon, and Ben Affleck, former US president Bill Clinton, and two generations of British princes.

Another reason we're so happy about this giveaway? Roots leather is SO good. Our Liza (LEEZA) Herz wrote all about the quality of Roots leather here.
