Here, finally, is a 1510 backpack ready for the on-line store. I first designed this bag with one of the favourite young women in my life and since then have made four for order. The design gives a nod to the classic backpack but has its own personality. Each 1510 has had refinements; it’s the great thing about remaking a design. And what started out as a request to use a favourite belt has become a search for vintage pieces to use as a signature closure. This version has a great vintage leather strap with a pewter buckle. It makes the bag unique.
Standard 1510 features: large metal zipper pocket on the back of the bag for security, double leather bottom for strength, carry handle for versatility, adjustable straps, and easy drawstring closure under the flap. All the seams are double stitched. Under the flap is a great piece of dark brown upholstery leather. Inside the bag is lined in black waxed canvas with two leather pockets in red and pink–easy to see! It’s made with great butterscotch leather with care and love.
