A minimalist mini-pack made of 100% organic cotton, dip-dyed with natural pigments. This one is perfect as a purse when in town and as a small daypack when out on the trails. It fits a lunch, tablet, paperback, and a change of socks and t-shirt. The flat outer pocket on the back holds a phone and a slim wallet. Keys, water bottle, bike lock and sunglasses can be hung on the side and front carabiner loops.
Our canvas rucksacks are treated with northern Ontario beeswax for weatherproofing. Natural fibre and thread, designed with minimal metal (2 buckles only) and zero plastics!
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. Also keep in mind that your screen may not be accurate in representing colours as shown. Please get in touch with us if you have any colour concerns before ordering.
