Durable waxed canvas backpack is a great choice if you are looking for a water-resistant bag that’s big enough for your laptop or knitting supplies! It is made from eight different colors of durable waxed canvas! I am so excited to offer you this backpack for sale. The waxed canvas only gets better with age, and the straps and handles hold up beautifully, as the construction is very sturdy.
The double pull zipper makes this backpack easy to open up from the top.
The backpack has a pocket on the front that is perfect to slip things in when you’re on the go - it stays closed with a magnetic snap.
The inner zip pocket can hold important documents such as a passport or cash when traveling.
The side pockets are a great size for a phone or wallet and provide easy access without having to take off the backpack.
The straps are adjustable.
Perfect for traveling, for an every day backpack, a diaper bag, and more!
I chose the floral lining fabric to coordinate with the outer fabric. It gives off a little bit of a vintage vibe. The leather tab on the front is just the icing on the cake! Every detail, down to the antique bronze colored hardware and tan suede zipper pulls, was chosen with care!

Handmade by me!
Waxed canvas is a lovely, sturdy, and water-resistant fabric. It should be spot cleaned with a damp cloth only. The wrinkles and creases you see are characteristic of this fabric. When it warms up, the wax remelts and smooths out. If your backpack gets rained on, it will have a speckled look until the wax remelts (such as if it sits in a hot car, or if you blow dry it on a low setting with a hair dryer).
Please message me if you have any questions! I’d be happy to go over anything with you :)
