Materials and Design
Hi, this is Cross Munson, Dad's son. I'm 10 years old and I've always wanted my own leather backpack that was lightweight because Dad's backpacks and are way too heavy for me. So, when I was 8 years old, I asked Dad if I could design a leather backpack that was the size of my favorite canvas backpack and he said I could. So, I designed these. They are really strong because they're made of pigskin and they're very lightweight and floppy because they are unlined. He said I couldn't use any velcro like was on my canvas backpack and I couldn't use a magnet like was on it too. My canvas one had elastic to close it and dad said I couldn't use elastic either. So I put a drawstring on there. I love it.
I drew him about 20 different ideas I was imagining and asked if we could make some. So Dad took me down to Mexico and had me start designing with one of our prototype people at the factory. I learned from my dad and designed all of the leather backpacks and satchels myself. You should buy one.
