The Ancora structured leather backpack is the perfect minimalist backpack. “Ancora” is the Italian word for ‘anchor’, and it’s also an often-used expression in Italian that means ‘again, still, yet’. We love the versatility and strength that this backpack embodies, and the word, ‘Ancora’ seemed like the perfect fit!
This structured leather backpack can stand on its own and keep you looking put-together no matter how cluttered the contents may be inside! It’s also great for hands-free traveling. The best thing about this structured backpack is that it’s not flimsy or delicate, so you can travel with the peace of mind knowing that this bag can survive getting knocked around, and it also protects your back if you find yourself in a busy place or crowd. The flap can’t be opened very easily so your things are secure inside. There’s also a convenient top handle for carrying the bag on your arm while getting things from inside, or for when you need to hang it on a bag hook. This structured leather backpack also features flat back pockets for quick access to folded documents (can fit folded A4 or letter-sized paper printouts and the like, i.e. plane tickets, hotel booking certificates, research) as well as a smaller pocket for storing bus passes, metro cards, or small tickets you need to have on hand. Can fit up to 14″ laptops. With adjustable leather straps.
Made with full vegetable tanned leather from Tuscany, Italy. The serialized card from the Consorzio Vera Pelle guarantees the leather’s origins and quality.
Quiddity bags also feature the signature alternating stitch as a hallmark of its being 100% sewn by hand. This stitch cannot be replicated by sewing machines and it also helps make the bag sturdier and protects the seam from coming apart.
Available in Volanato (a natural shade that will patina beautifully into golden brown over time) and Nero (the classic black), E/W (landscape) and N/S (portrait) versions, with customizable thread colors. Just indicate in the checkout portion or message form which customizable features you have chosen!
