Thus, the concept of these backpacks unites sustainability and Scandinavian design. Made from sustainable materials such as organic cotton canvas and vegetable-tanned leather. Buckles are free from chrome and nickel. The dyed organic cotton canvas is natural, untreated, water resistant and fast drying.
