why this product

These heavy-weight 14 ounce canvas backpacks have suede-covered straps and sturdy brass zippers to carry all your essentials around campus, from home to office, or out on a weekend adventure. Suede zipper pulls make opening and closing the bag easy. The main zipper runs the full length of the bag so that you can pack it fully, and find contents quickly. A lanyard in the inside front pocket with a brass key clasp keeps your keyring close at hand. Soft suede also covers the handle at the top of the bag, to caress your palm whenever you grab the pack to swing it on to your back. The suede shoulder straps are filled with a felt padding for comfort, and are fully adjustable, ensuring a custom fit to your height. 

use & care

Avoid getting the suede sections of the backpack wet. If needed, the canvas can be spot-cleaned with a mild soap, warm water and a stiff brush. 

production & design

A Greenville, North Carolina manufacturer made these bags from all-American materials. Established in 1982, Parrot Canvas originally supplied canvas to the marine trade. Many US Navy ships still use their bags for on-board gear storage. To make these bags, the maker first created a pattern based on a classic backpack design.  Then, the canvas and leather are cut to size, and zippers are installed. The interior seams are then bound, and the pocket and die-cut leather trims are stitched in place. All the seams are double stitched for durability, so that your backpack will withstand many years of frequent use.
