monsak has two backpack sizes, we call these bags the ‘sak 7’. One is a bit larger, has more compartments and has a sturdy and cool look and feel. The other, is a size smaller and has a more subtle look and feel. Both sizes have a laptop compartment and another large compartment, which fits a lot. The broad straps on both backpacks make it easy to carry a lot of weight and also be comfortable to carry. The style is minimalistic and this makes it suitable for work, but also for grocery shopping or to take with you on your travels.
These leather backpacks are made with the Scandinavian style in mind: basic and less is more. This makes it a unique bag that is unisex. The bag also has two compartments on the sides of the bag. It also has a zipper pocket on the back and the front has a compartment that serves as a laptop cover. This compartment also has a zipper pocket for small bits and bobs. Because of the minimalistic design and the high quality leather, the look and feel of the bags are edgy, pure, urban and fancy. A practical and sturdy backpack, handmade in our studio/store in Amsterdam.
