The Galway Backpack
If you google ‘Guide to Galway’ you are most likely to stumble across a blog telling you that Galway is indeed one of Ireland's best-kept secrets. Perhaps a secret no longer after a certain redheaded crooning pop star made it famous with his upbeat ballad ‘Galway girl’. However, it is no secret to anyone who has visited, that this city is a jewel on the Atlantic coast (even if it is a soggy jewel). Galway records an average of 300 rainy days a year, making appropriate attire a must, all year round.
Our newest and most sophisticated full-size backpack is the perfect companion for this fair-weathered town. Its generous internal compartment could hold your raincoat and travel accessories, your iPad and camera as you make your way from pub to plunge, a traditional icy dip in the native waters with local residents. The soft grain leather and uniquely shaped flap design are all a nod to this beautiful, wild coastal destination sure to be a memorable stop in your wanderings. Inside is a pop of fun with our new W lining… this backpack is certain to be at the top of many wishlists in 2023.

Our leather is the best quality full grain cow hide and is sourced from Australia and Europe. It is is custom tanned to our specifications using Italian techniques and products.
Our bags are designed by us in Sydney, Australia and shipped from our warehouse and flagship store in Sutherland in the south of Sydney. Read our story
Our leather is tanned and our bags manufactured in a family run factory in Pakistan. They are very proud of their skill with leather which has been passed down through generations!
We have endeavoured to provide web images of our leather products that closely match their actual colours but due to the differing colour settings of computer, phone and tablet displays, we cannot guarantee that the colour you see on your screen will exactly match what you receive.
Our bags are crafted with full grain leather (the best quality and strongest type of leather) and in their most natural state it is best to protect the leather using one of the many leather care products on the market. We like leather conditioner as it protects and conditions the leather. We have found creams and leather rubs work much better on our leather, rather than sprays. More about leather care.
You may find that good old fashioned warm water on a damp cloth and a gentle rub will get rid of any marks!And be sure to let it air dry! There are also some great leather cleaning products you can purchase and we have had some success cleaning off marks with an “authentic art eraser”. Pressing the art eraser over and over onto the marks sometimes removes them completely!
