The Love 41 Mini Leather Backpack is made from full-grain and the interior is lined with pigskin, which is tougher than the cowskin. This women's backpack is both beautiful and durable. Like with the gorillas in front of Suzette in Central Africa with this backpack in the picture below.
Leather- Imagine you paid for someone to put a new roof on your home and they didn't put shingles on it and then it leaked and fell apart quickl. Would you be alright with that? Well, leather is kind of like a roof. The tough top layer is called grain on it is like the shingles on a roof. They both are strong and very protective compared to the rest of the roof or hide. Sadly, some designers make leather backpacks with cheap leather that doesn't have any grain on it. The thick leather hide was split in half at the tannery and the expensive top half with the full amount of the grain on it (Full Grain) was sold to quality companies like us and the bottom half was sold to questionable women's leather backpack companies who sell to people who don't understand quality. The split away part, with no grain, is technically called Genuine, Split leather. Leather backpacks made full grain are expensive and long lasting.
This leather backpack is small, but it packs a punch of functionality. It's ideal for carrying your everyday necessities and has one interior and one zippered exterior pocket. In fact, I went gorilla trekking this past summer and chose to take this leather backpack with me over all others. The new version now has "D" rings at the top to secure the backpack straps.
