Someone once said that we acquire the finest novels in order to smell the leather bindings, and one is drawn to this theory when seeing the Makr round backpack, the base and part of the shoulder straps of which are made from Horween’s Manitoba leather. Makr produces bags and leather goods and believes in manufacturing it locally. The product line is designed and patterned in house, and all the small hand-sewn bits are produced in Makr’s studio in Florida. It’s got that handmade in North America feel all over it, which offers a feeling of reassurance that the products are genuine and definitely robust. This backpack is mostly made of canvas and the Horween leather, with YKK Excella zips.

The Makr Round Backpack is now available at Flatspot. Have a look at the other luggage and accessories we now stock from Makr Cary Goods.
