When it comes to classic schoolyard backpacks, I would wager that the name Eastpak probably comes to mind. After long since establishing themselves as one of the leading providers in durable and functional bags, they recently dipped their toes in a world we here at Heddels know and love very much – Japanese denim.
Perhaps the brand’s most exclusive release to date, the Limited Edition Vintage Boro Pak’r Backpacks are set to be released at the beginning of September with only five bags being produced. Design-wise, these packs don’t stray too far off the path for which Eastpak is known, but the beauty lies in the material. Fully constructed from vintage Japanese boro patchwork fabric, you can tote whatever it is that you tote knowing your bag played a role in the history of denim, and that’s pretty darned cool (pun intended).
Check the Eastpak site for more info on the September 1st launch.
