Custom Orange and Black Chalk Bucket

S. Thomsen Custom

I made this chalk bucket for a local Tampa climber!

S. Thomsen Custom


The exterior shell is made from medium weight canvas!

The bucket holds its rigid shape because the patchwork shell is backed with a durable fabric that is rigid but can be crushed and crumpled and will spring back to shape.

The interior is made from soft micro fiber fleece, the closure cord is made from 2mm Sterling Rope accessory cord!

Custom Order: Budweiser Can Chalk Bag


This is a KJ Bags first.

A local climber here in Tampa, FL requested this chalk bag.

I printed the vintage Budweiser label image onto fabric, then fixed it to the white canvas with adhesive and zig-zag stiches!





I’m obligated to mention that this particular bag is not currently for sale, as I don’t wish to violate the Budweiser trademark.

Custom Order: Hand-Painted OM Chalk Bag


I received this custom order this week from Ohio.  He requested a grey chalk bag with a red OM symbol on the front.

He provided the specific symbol and maroon color via the upload option on the KJ Bags custom order form.

I created a stencil for the OM design he sent over and painted it onto grey Sunbrella canvas that was purchased as scrap from a local sail shop.

Check it out…







So there it is!

The interior is made from grey anti-pill, microfiber fleece.

Dimensions: 7″ x 4.5″ diameter

Custom Order: I <3 Sharma Chalk Bucket!


This custom order comes from Tasmania, Australia!

Luckily, the message of this chalk bag is meant ironically…





The lettering was cut out from light-weight white canvas, then (painstakingly) sewn on!  The body of the bag is made from black cotton.  The bottom is made from thick, durable black Sunbrella canvas.  The bucket is backed with rigid stabilizer, so it stands and can’t be easily kicked over.

The interior is made from charcoal color anti-pill microfiber fleece!

Dimensions:  10″ x 10″ x 5″ opening diameter

Custom Order: Sailor Moon Chalk Bag



I received a funky custom order via last week for a Sailor Moon theme chalk bag with pink trim!  I remember this show because it was always on before my favorite morning cartoon (Recess!).  Anyway, here is it!
