Not just for bottling wine, these handcrafted nylon fabric backpacks are infused with touches of recycled cork material sustainably harvested from the bark of Portuguese cork trees.

The 'Corked' backpack features durable cork accents throughout, collected from the leftover materials in wine cork production. Besides creating a unique pattern for the bag, the choice to use recycled cork was inspired both from the material's strong durability, and its reputation for flexibility under high pressure. The cork has also been double layered and stitched with nylon inside the bag to help improve the backpack's overall strength.

Besides the bag's eco-friendly cork construction, the backpack also features a sunglasses pocket, mesh water bottle holder, a padded laptop sleeve and even a hidden stash pocket for if you plan to be carrying around more than just wine bottles with you.
