We made this Backpack with a stunning randa embroidery-filled corte and natural indigo-dyed footloom textile. Indigo blue is always our favorite, what do you think? Two units were made out of the same corte.
Made with genuine local leather and traditional corte textile (wrap skirt popularly worn by Maya women) with colorful hand embroidery accents. Two leather pockets keep your small necessities easy to reach - keys, chapstick, gum... Two little inside pockets are also great for keeping valuables in place, like credit cards, cash, or phone. Note that the bottom and the back of the backpack are all leather, making it super durable. Inner lining is made with plant-dyed new textile handwoven by our partners at Lake Atitlán.
Comes with adjustable straps, and a magnet to keep the top flap in place. Go out and explore the world!
Note that modeled pictures were taken with a different backpack with same measurements.
