A stylish multifunctional bag!

Out of stock


There are 3 ways (or maybe more!) to use this bag – as a little backpack, a fabric brief case or a cross body bag by re clipping or unclipping the lapel straps. The lapel can also be worn individually! Large enough to cater for most laptops. Fully Lined with bound seams for extra strength. Upcycled from men’s suit jackets, trousers or jeans. Due to the upcycled nature, each piece is a one off.

Please Note: The strap is removable and lengths vary on each piece: This one is 160cm (with extra adjustment)
