Introducing the Highlander Backpack! You asked for a backpack, and I have delivered. This backpack is both rugged, with a waxed outer canvas and leather body, yet refined with its tartan (or Harris Tweed® cloth) panel on the front.
Waxed canvas is a 100% cotton canvas that has been treated with an eco-friendly wax coating. It makes the canvas repel water. It also develops a lovely patina over time, which adds to the character of the bag. The bottom of the bag is a thick, beautiful 5/6oz leather (in either brown or black). It's fully lined with the gorgeous quilting cottons that I've become known for. There is a large main compartment with slip pockets for electronics/wallet and pens, as well as a spacious zip pocket on the front of the bag with more slip pockets to keep you organized. The front pocket will also have a clip for your keys. No more digging to the bottom of your bag!
The 1" backpack straps are a 5/6oz leather and are fully adjustable with sliders.
The dimensions are:
16″ from top to bottom
14″ from side to side
4.5″ wide on the bottom
The Highlander Backpack can be customized with the tartan or Harris Tweed® and either a rugged black or brown leather for maximum durability.
I ask that you contact me firstname.lastname@example.org discuss your custom work before placing an order.
Before contacting me, please look at my list ofavailable tartans to see if I have the tartan you are interested in. My website also has a large range of the Harris Tweed® colours that I have available. I am able to order many tartans, so if I don't have yours, please inquire about a special order.
During your complimentary consultation, I am more than happy to take a maximum of four photos of various tweed/tartan/leather combinations for you to make your decision, but I do ask that you be ready with your choices when contacting me.If you require more photos, we can discuss a consultation fee.
If you are not sure what you'd like, I can put together a couple of looks for you, but I will need information about your preferred colour palettes before I can do this. With such a large quantity of available textiles, it is impossible for me to put together combinations to suit your taste without your guidance.
All custom orders must be paid in full before work begins. Due to the personalized nature of custom orders, no returns or exchanges are accepted.
I am unable to make any structural modifications to the bags listed. I understand the desire to have a completely customized piece, but unfortunately with the volume of orders that I currently have, I don't have sufficient time to make modifications, no matter how small. These modifications often require changes to other parts of the bag, which means that I need to draft a whole new pattern to ensure the bag will be structurally sound. Thank you for your kind understanding.
Please allow 3-4 weeks for the completion of all custom orders. I do not offer rush service. All custom orders are completed in the order they are placed.
