The handmade leather backpack came to life from the initiative of Melissa, a United States passionate bike rider that faces no compromises when it comes to motorcycles and accessories. She ordered the custom leather backpack with Chiwit Design in the hopes of getting her dream backpack uniquely hand crafted and here is her comments right after receiving the delivery:
“You have done a wonderful job on this bag!! All the ladies here in my office were blown away! It is gorgeous!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!”
I truly liked Melissa’s idea to begin with. The leather backpack took the inspiration from world famous Tomb Raider movie starring Angelina Jolie.
The small leather backpack resembles the one Lara Croft wears as her favourite throughout the moving picture.
The motorcycle backpack’s beauty is implicit in it’s simplicity.
The genuine tooling leather used for the crafted rucksack has been moulded in order to archive the turtle like shell shape of the outer most part.
Benefits of the design are great water repellence and aerodynamics to ensure top performances on motorbikes.
The inside pig skin lining, features a single pocket where to maybe keep your iPad nice and tight.
The back side that is in contact with the upper part of your back, implements a harness like system to avoid direct contact of the outer shell with your back, therefore keeping your body cool.
The straps are adjustable and provide a comfortable fit, which helps in keeping your shoulders in line and back straight.
The leather colour is archived by coating the raw hides with natural solvents to soak the upper most surface of the leather, rendering a permanent and uniformly distributed colour.
