One of a kind mini backpack with natural edge flap & ring closure. Made from 8-10 ounce dark brown vegetable tanned steerhide. Sewn entirely by hand.
At its widest points, the mini backpack is 8.5" wide, 10.5" tall, with a gusset (middle-section) that is 5" thick at the bottom, and tapers to 2.5" thick at the top.
Features tapered straps for comfort, our signature hand stitching, a ring closure for adjustability (simply loop the leather tab through the rings to close), natural edge, and solid brass hardware.
We condition the leather with our own blend of oils and local beeswax, so it is water resistant and can be worn out in any kind of weather!
Leather is a natural product, and each piece we work with has a slightly different grain pattern. We carefully lay out our patterns to showcase the beauty of all parts of a hide, which results in bags that are truly one of a kind.
Our signature hand stitching is informed by our study of shoemaking. It involves hand punching each hole with a very sharp diamond point awl, then sewing with two needles at once, joining the pieces together seamlessly. As a result, the insides of our bags show little or no stitching, and feature clean, crisp lines that are just as beautiful as the outsides. We take great joy in creating bags in which every stitch is intentional and every inch is thought out!
We strive to combine traditional craft and modern design to create bags that are timeless, functional, and will last a lifetime.
