The Wayfarer Backpack is kind of unique in its design and construction, it’s made from soft charcoal wool which is rubber backed and lined with a water resistant cotton duck-cloth, the straps are double layer heavy weight waxed tan canvas with cushioning. The backpack has a padded compartment for a 15″ laptop and has a base made from thick, waxed canvas.
Each bag is made by hand in the USA by Amber Jensen and you can grab one on Etsy here.
