leather-backpack-catrina

A comfortable women’s backpack / messenger bag in a noble brown colour with designs of of Catrina, one of the most popular figures of the Day of the Dead celebrations in Mexico.

La Calavera Catrina ('Dapper Skeleton', 'Elegant Skull') is a 1910–1913 zinc etching by famous Mexican printmaker, cartoon illustrator and lithographer José Guadalupe Posada. The image depicts a female skeleton dressed only in a hat befitting the upper class outfit of a European of her time. Her chapeau en attende is related to French and European styles of the early 20th century. She is offered as a satirical portrait of those Mexican natives who, Posada felt, were aspiring to adopt European aristocratic traditions in the pre-revolutionary era. She in particular has become an icon of the Mexican Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead.

The bag is produced without using sealants but thanks to its well designed construction the messenger bag is perfectly shaped. Inside we have intentionally left out a liner in order to display the skin of genuine leather making your article look luxurious.

The bag can be transformed from backpack version to messenger by attaching the shoulder strap to additional loops.

The bags are made from durable Turkish leather – with beautiful and durable hardware. The leather is treated with a special substance, which protects it against moisture and dust.

There is a pocket large enough for a mobile phone on each side. On the front panel there is a pocket for a mobile phone or a purse. An adjustable shoulder strap is also included. If desired, it can be unfastened.

Size: 27 cm x 37 cm x 12 cm

The prototype of this men's handbag served as a vintage messenger bag which was made in Africa in 1956. We made small changes and modernisations, selected the right leather and hardware and as a result, we got a very original vintage messenger bag for women.

The messenger bag is 100% handmade. The print is also produced by hand using a pyrogravure technique. With such a messenger bag you are sure to be noticed, it is approved by Dominators.

The bright and original colour of the messenger bag ensures that you stand out from the crowd and the burnt-in pattern is guaranteed to attract attention.
