Fav bag!

I’ve been carrying this back daily for over a year! Perfect size for everyday needs, but big enough to travel with! I’d never go on a trip without it. Leather is super durable and I’ve definitely tested how heavy I can fill it. No issues! Gorgeous colors. Highly recommend!!

Perfect Size Backpack for Everyday or Specialty Trips

I bought this backpack almost 2 years ago. I love it and receive many compliments on it. It is the perfect sized backpack, not too big and not too small. The backpack can actually hold many items and it doesn't look bulky or awkward when filled to the top. The straps are sturdy and made of beautiful leather, which sit nicely on the shoulders. The backpack is lined with quality fabric. I love the colorful embroidered/stitched design that is found on the outside of the backpack. I decorated my backpack with brightly colored Mexican pom poms. I have taken my backpack on day trips, to the store, and to school. I know that my backpack will accompany on many more adventures in the future.


This backpack has been an ideal travel companion on many journeys with me! It’s super versatile and goes well with everything. Very well made, sturdy straps and extremely comfortable. It’s a staple that will remain with me for years to come, (and hopefully accompany me on many more travels!)

Finally Purchase - And So Glad I Did

I first saw this backpack on Instagram from someone I was following. The combination of textile and leather caught my eye...and I loved the fact that it was a backpack. (Backpacks offer so much versatility - I can baby wear in the front, have my hands free, distribute weight nicely...and so on!)

Anyway, I thought about this backpack and "stalked" it for quite some time. I finally decided to purchase and I am so so happy I did.

It is vey durable, and lined. It is comfortable to wear and extremely spacious.

I can easily work as a purse, day bag, or if you pack light...an overnight bag.

I see this being my go-to bag for many, many years to come!
