Product Overview

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.

    Mini Backpack

    I love this backpack. It’s my everyday bag! It holds all I need. It is durable and the Tobacco color looks great with anything you wear. Of all my love41 pieces this is my favorite and most used.

    So, cute. Can't fit too much, though. It does hold all the necessities a woman needs. Just don't use pouches to put stuff in.

    Love this backpack

    I love this mini backpack I got in the dark coffee. I immediately move into it and everything I need fits in it. The color is gorgeous and the leather is thick. It’s not too heavy because it’s nice and compact (I have back issues and have found carrying a backpack helps). I may need to get it in another color. The only thing I would love is an outside back slip pocket

    The BEST EDC backpack for a non-minimalist

    I just received my Mini Backpack in chestnut and think it is the BEST everyday carry option for a non-minimalist who likes being hands free. The size is perfect for carrying your essentials plus some while feeling organized. The chestnut leather is gorgeous. The only two additions I'd recommend to make it even better would be to add a full panel back pocket on the exterior (like the Mini Mini BP) and a key leash/clip in the main compartment. The "hidden" pocket is a genius design element and I tend to use it for my phone. The quality of leather, craftmanship, and design of this "little" backpack are top-notch and I highly recommend it. Thank you, Suzette and Tina, for a stellar, practical solution for hands-free everyday use!
