We just can’t get enough of Aztec prints running erratic circles all over your clothes and now your bag! Zig-zag, ikat or warli art-like motifs are so delicious. Buy an ikat-patterned backpack here.
Plant a field of blossoms on your next purchase. The floral print is all you need to know when you want to make the most of your little dresses and shorts. Buy a floral print backpack here.
Let the nerd in you shine through a smartass leather satchel/backpack. Pick a touch of colour on the strap or on a pocket flap if you don’t want to go monotone.
Play up a plain backpack into an objet d’art. Cover it in badges or hang trinkets from the zippers. You can even add lace trimming to the edges or a denim pocket/patches from old jeans to make them a creation you can’t help but carry around with pride.
