This is an outstanding find. This backpack, in my opinion is made better than even the vintage coach models. Learn who made it below ⬇️.
It is of full grain leather in a rose wood natural dye. Pre-owned with very little wear. Some darkening of the color on the handle. It has a slide in pocket on the back and a zippered pocket on the front. Drawstring with guide and magnet closure. Interior is not lined, but of the rich suede side of the leather.
Measures: 14" tall. 14 1/2" wide seam to seam. The base is 11" by 5 1/2". Adjustable straps are 25" long now and will go 2" longer and much shorter. The straps are cushioned at the shoulder.
Has her signature medallion on the outer zipper pull. It says: "The Ahwahnee Yosemite"
Made in America! 🇺🇸This backpack was made by Etsy artist Colleen Bayley. It originally retailed for about $400.00. She is CMBayleyDesigns on etsy and here is a bit about her: CMBayley, a local Sierra Nevada artist has custom designed these fine, butter-soft, leather bags with rich colors and deep textures. Treated only with natural waxes and dyes, each bag is cut and hand sewn by the artist.
