Recycled Travel Backpack - Mini
A backpack that is uniquely yours!
Every backpack is one-of-a-kind! The new colorful cotton patterned pieces are consistent on every bag, however the burlap (jute) pieces on the sides and the front pocket are recycled from authentic Indian rice bags. Each piece is unique. There will never bee another backpack made just like it. The slight imperfections you find help tell this incredibly human story between the fabrics, the seamstress who made it, the family who received the rice, and you. As you use this backpack, you carry the story forward through your daily adventures.
This is a lightweight backpack designed for day use. Great for packing a sweatshirt, laptop, food, and more. This is not a heavy duty pack. It is not designed for extended trips or to be filled with heavy items, such as multiple textbooks, multiple water bottles, or heavy gear. Recycled bags may be hand washed or spot cleaned and air dried. Please do NOT machine wash or machine dry.
