The Explorer Backpack


Sold By: Notch Handmade


Roomy enough for a large laptop without being bulky, The Explorer Backpack is handmade in a gorgeous, Italian vegetable tanned leather that is thick and durable.

It can be hand dyed to any of the colours listed (custom colours are also available on request), but is also stunning in natural distressed brown.

The backpack measures approximately 30cm wide x 35cm tall x 7cm deep and has adjustable shoulder straps, an external phone pocket to the back and buckles to fasten the front flap. There are also external straps to the side of the backpack for carrying a water bottle.

Please allow up to 10 days from order to despatch, as this bag is hand made to order.

Please note that, whilst I try my hardest to accurately reproduce the colours of items in my photos, they may appear differently on your screen.

Leather is a natural product and will have blemishes and marks that are inherent in the material. I think this is part of its appeal, but ask that you keep this in mind when ordering one of my leathery products.
