Leather Backpack/ Rucksack/ Knapsack | For Le Girlfriend

posted in: Blog | 0

My girlfriend has been bugging me to get her a vegetable tanned backpack from TaoBao. For those who are not familiar with TaoBao, it is a shopping site much like your ASOS or Urban Outfitters.

Everybody knows how I hate to spend money, and it didn’t look too difficult to do. I decided to make the bag for her. Second time I’m making a bag for her. But this time, I wanted it to look so good, she can swing it in her friend’s face and say,“HMPH! MY BOYFRIEND MADE THIS! ADMIRE IT! ADMIREEEEE!”

And so, I began on the arduous journey to make a backpack for her in time, before she makes the hasty move to buy something off TaoBao.

And so, construction begins…..

Worked on a 3-4 oz. oily pull up black leather, with everything stitched by hand. Cause as we all know, saddle stitch doesn’t break apart when 1 thread comes loose. Definitely guarantees a long lasting product. And because I was too poor to afford a sewing machine.

So here’s the happy camper with her new bag.

I do not have a lot of photos, as I am not a professional photographer, and black can be a tough colour to try and snap images of.

But do stay tune as I’ll try to upload more images of it! Or visit my Instagram, or Carousell account to find out more.
