~* Hemp Rucksack *~

This unique hemp rucksack is made from a combination of hemp panels and recycled fabrics. These fabrics combine a variety of colours and textures for a unique backpack that is individual and fun! This one combines a variety of hemp fabrics in natural, black and brown tones, with the smaller front pocket in a fun retro style patterned wool blend. The top and bottom of the bag feature fun striped multicoloured cotton. This is the only bag with this exact combination of fabrics and as such is unique!

Plenty big enough for work or school the large main pocket is big enough to fit several A4 files and some textbooks too! There is a separate pocket inside with velcro tab to keep your laptop or tablet extra secure. There is further secondary zipped pocket on the front and another smaller zipped pocket for your little bits that you need to get to easily. The side of the bag has two elasticated pockets to pop your water bottle and umbrella! The straps are fully adjustable with polypropylene webbing for strength and, along with the back of the bag,  are padded for comfort. There is also a small hoop at the top of the bag to hang your bag up easily.

Please note that this bag is made of a combination of recycled fabrics, including as interfacing in the inside of the bag. These fabrics are a combination of hemp and cotton, but may also contain other fibres from both synthetic and natural sources.
