Mexican Revolution Backpack with pink Day of the Dead pocket.
Made from the bolsas at the vegetable market, they are cut up and re-sewn
into this backpack. We add clear vinyl on the front now, to preserve the printed image.

The straps are leather, and the shoulder piece and pocket also leather. Nice leather.
Back and bottom is cordura-canvas with small passport pocket in the center of the back.

Double-stitched and finished inside with piping. Can carry a respectable amount of weight
for a lightweight backpack. Top is striped mesh from the sides of the cut-up bolsas.

A popular item while we lived in Mexico; we were the only people who actually made these.
(they take too long to actually make a profit from)
I'm fairly sure there are still no others like these, except plaid and striped backpacks.
But we use the printed images, which cost us more. Plaid is boring.

They are double stitched with nylon thread, and
they are strong. The zipper is a number 8 YKK nylon camping zipper. We want
to make sure you can't break it. Double-bottom, lower adjusters on the straps.

The pack measures 12" wide, 16" tall and 4" deep. The front pocket is 6" x 9". There's leather pockets on both sides for keys, ID, pens, etc. The leather straps are adjustable. Brown sheepskin straps on this one, I think, with fancy stitching. Very soft leather.
Fits all humans.

Cordura-canvas bottom is reinforced with recycled-tarp material inside. Bright orange stitching

Fake snakeskin printed on the leather, on the back. Our only non-pink Mexican backpack
this week; actually our only male folk-hero character also.

Maybe cool for guys.

Ships USPS Priority ($10) for 2-3 day delivery. Sorry about the high shipping. It's
the only thing which offers tracking. I refund the difference if it turns out cheaper.
But usually it's a flat rate across the country.
