Colors shown in order: natural, dark tan, walnut & black.
The inspiration for the Postal Backpack #2 is the European School Bag from the 50" and 60's.
Our goal was to make a high end version of the bag. An urban backpack that is easy to use in subways, on bicycles, walking the NY streets and running to catch a taxi. But also a functional bag to take to meetings and look representative.
To make the Postal Backpack #2 we use 2.2mm water resistant vegetable tanned leather. We import the leather ourselves from our tannery in Italy.
This beautiful tight grain, dense leather will keep the shape of this bag for generations. The weather and just breaking it in will soften the leather and deepen the color over the years.
The hardware is solid brass and the S-buckle closure is customized and exclusively made for us by hand. The bag comes with the handle, although you can not see it on the walnut bag in the pictures.
Dimensions of the bag are: 16"- 12"- 3.85".
It’s a lightweight bag, it weighs close to 2.5 pounds.
Inside the bag is a divider (size fits a 13" macbook pro) & a large pocket (10"-12") with a zipper.
The bag easily fits a 17" laptop in the main compartment. Next to large inside pocket is a key-hook where you can attach your keys.
On the back panel is a small pocket with zipper for safety and easy access to your wallet or phone. (size Iphone 6+).
Our bags are hand cut, crafted and designed at our KikaNY studio in the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
Please note, that we make our bags by hand to order in our studio, which implies that there is a lead time of 10-14 days.
