The perfect backpack and handbag combination bag for the woman that demands versatility and appreciates handcrafted slow fashion.
Our newest design that has been perfected all summer, ready for fall and winter wear. Every aspect and feature has been tested time and time again by designer and maker, Sally Keiser, this is her daily handbag.
Our backpack can be worn in two ways. The metal rings on the top of the bag allow the strap to pass through with ease, and change wear styles in seconds. Pull the straps up through for over the shoulder wear, or grab the straps at the sides of the bag, and pull to close together for a backpack style.
Work day turning into a busy night, switch from over the shoulder tote to hands free backpack, like *that!
Strengthened seams will hold up to rigorous wear. Many customers site wearing their Sally Ann bags for years, with no signs of age aside from the occasional wash (see care instructions below).
Antique brass hardware makes the bag match all jewelry choices, gold, silver, copper, brass. Brass purse feet protect the bottoms of the bag when it may meet an unfriendly surface.
All of our products are designed, cut, and assembled by Sally Keiser in our home studio in Grand Rapids, Michigan. We are now a ZERO WASTE production space. Carefully cutting and sorting all scraps so nothing is thrown away.
