It seems like we receive requests for leather backpacks almost daily, and I'm excited to announce that they are finally here! This version by Moyi Moyi has a minimalist vibe, representing the utilitarian aesthetic of its Scandinavian designer, Jenny Nordlow. Jenny works with master artisans in Nigeria and Ethiopia to deliver a backpack that blends time-tested techniques with modern design.
Artisanship and transparency are at the heart of the Moyi Moyi business model. The leather used to craft their bags is sourced from local tanneries to maximize the local economic impact in regions where sustainable employment opportunities are needed.
The Benin Backpack is slick and functional: the roomy interior can fit a backpack and other daily necessities and the sleek, high-quality leather exterior is professional enough for the office, yet cool enough for daily use. Expect this bag to get softer and more supple as the leather wears-in with use.
