A small daypack designed with lightness and mobility in mind. It has an outer pocket in the back for a phone and wallet, side and front carabiner loops for keys and a water bottle. It's designed with minimal metal and plastic (only recycled yoga mat for the shoulder strap padding) and maximal ethical and renewable resources.
This product is hand-dyed with plant and mineral dyes and weatherproofed with northern ontario beeswax. Colour variations and light or dark spots are normal, make each bag unique, and are beautiful vestiges of the hand-made process. All plant dyes gradually fade over time with exposure to light and life.
Please allow 5-10 business days to prepare for shipment.
