Okay, okay, so it’s not exactly Back to School Season. In fact, it’s the opposite—Back from School Season. Either way, Momotaro’s latest carryall is set to fade whether it acts as a bookbag, gym bag, or hands-free daily carry.
Made from judo-approved indigo-dyed sashiko fabric, the Two Way Backpack is so named for the shoulder straps and handles, so you can choose your preferred method of vessel suspension. An outer gusseted pocket keeps your calculator, makeup, and nugs together, while a side zip compartment gives you easy access to flash cards and your moleskin full of ideas for the next great American novel, because that’s actually going to happen.
The expandable rolltop closure opens up to a waterproof rayon-lined main compartment that measures in at 22.5” x 18” x 11,” which is plenty of room for a laptop and an average-sized baguette. Also, did we mention that they included a mini version of their handpainted ‘battle stripe’ arcuate?
Available for $296AUD (~$215USD) at Corlection.
