Large project bag made of a Portuguese cotton/linen blend fabric and patchwork of tiny scraps of fabrics and slow stitching, as part of my attempt to reduce waste and create more sustainable items. This bag is perfect for large knitting projects, like sweaters or blankets, but can be used for other kinds of storage (as a shopping bag, day bag, maternity bag, beach bag), as it is large enough to carry lots of things, has a wide boxed bottom that makes it stand straight, lots of pockets and a comfortable crossbody removable and adjustable strap.

This bag is part of my Re-Treasure Collection, made with little scraps of fabric that once were treasured pieces of clothing or accessories, now deconstructed and given a new function and meaning. The old made new, with mending and embroidering techniques applied in a slow and intuitive way, honouring the good memories and emotional bonds that get woven in each fibre.

- Body: natural Linho Alentejano (90% cotton, 10% linen)
- Front pocket made with scraps of linen and cotton fabrics, in light blue, green, beige and ecru shades, with hand embroidery and slow stitches that create a nice textured artwork
- Lining: light blue cotton
- Inside: 2 pockets made of the same fabric as lining, one with 2 larger divisions (for notebooks, papers, yarn) and one with 4 smaller divisions (for needles, scissors). Interfaced and padded for better rigidity.
- Closure: light grey zipper.
- Strap: ecru cotton webbing, with antique brass metal hardware.

- Dimensions are approximately:
45 cm / 17.7'' large
40 cm / 15.7'' zipper
30 cm / 11.8'' height
20 cm / 7.9'' depth
25x19.5 cm / 9.8x7.7'' external pocket

I got the backpacks a couple of days ago, I can say they’re the best bags I have ever bought in my life! The love they were made with is so visible, it makes you stare at them all the time relentlessly, they have fascinating details and art should be appreciated. Adriana has her magic in making so beautiful things. in addition, she is so understanding and whatever you ask she will answer you elaborately. I hope this is not my last time to buy form Mundo Flo. If you’re hesitant whether to order or not I recommend you to do you’ll never regret! Adriana sent me photos of the process which was so reassuring. Whenever I see the backpack it fills me with joy💗

I couldn't be happier with my custom laptop backpack and I really enjoyed working with Adriana! She is incredibly detail oriented and made sure the backpack is beautiful and functional. The backpack fits a 13" laptop, tall water bottle and several tech accessories. She even made sure the straps were wider so that I could carry it comfortably. The entire backpack is also padded so my items are well protected. I love ferns and fiddleheads so she made sure to include those elements, the embroidery always puts a smile on my face every time I see it. Thank you Adriana for all the love and care you put into the backpack :)

I loooove my backpack! I asked Adriana to create a custom backpack with a horse, wildflowers and mountains. And she executed it perfectly! She responded quickly to my conversations as well. The pack is well made and I can't wait to use it as my little one's diaper pack! I would definitely purchase from her again. <3
