Life is simply weird and complicated. It all started when Zack winning the grand prize in our 1st Sandast Raffle. We all laughed at Zack’s obsession with the leather Apron he won & since then, we became friends.

Allyson & Zack likes to travel travel around the world and she has been looking for a backpack that will accompany her in countless adventures.

So we’ve decided to make a custom backpack for Allyson & of course, it was Zack’s gift for Allyson.

While discussing its function and size, Allyson was very clear on what she wanted to carry. Based on her needs, we’ve decided on the size & its look.

Upon seeing the dummy sample, Allyson & I both agreed this would be a special backpack.

It was a difficult decision, but cognac was her color of choice.

After a long wait, Allyson finally got to meet her new backpack last Wednesday.
& this is what she had to say.

“I have used the Allyson Backpack every day since picking it up on Wednesday and it's absolutely perfect. It's beautiful and even more functional than I imagined. In addition to my standard load of wallet, keys, phone, etc for workdays it fits my big laptop after all and for weekends it comfortably holds a bottle of wine (or two!). All the details you worked in are spot on - the pockets are perfectly placed, the side loops have successfully held a jacket and water bottle so far, and the adjustable buckle means I can really load it up if needed. 

This bag will be my companion for countless adventures and I can't thank you enough for your stunning work and eye for detail!

Talk soon,
Allyson”
