Durable Handcrafted Leather Backpacks

The Leatherback Combines Style, Quality and Function

— February 15, 2018 — Fashion
The Leatherback is a utilitarian handcrafted leather backpack that is built to last a lifetime. The product is made by an artisan under the Victory Leathercraft brand in a "secluded floating workshop on the south coast of England."

Featuring the finest premium full-grain leather and nickel-plated brass fittings, the accessory is equipped with multiple compartments for comfort. The bag boasts a clean, practical and versatile design that is accustomed to all types of weather, environments or fashion ensembles. The aesthetic of the handcrafted leather backpack is visually striking to say the least.

Due to nature of handmade production, the Leatherback will be a limited edition backpack as the craftsman spent time developing and customizing a unique body for his dedicated customer base.
