This product is handcrafted and hand-stitched by a single experienced craftsman, Marco Lazzaroni, founder of Vicus Pelle brand.
His production aims at the finest quality of entirely handcrafted goods. The products are the original unification of a minimal and modern aesthetic conception with one of the oldest textile traditions.
Behind the principal aims of Vicus’s production lays the essential eco-ethical values of the Swiss Made. These products are made exclusively of the finest and more traditional Italian leather, which is the vegetable-tanned leather of Tuscany. This natural leather can be distinguished by its smell and feel. Over time, it ages but it does not compromise the beauty and the resistance, it remains alive, transforming itself to the use it is given. The “vacchetta” he uses is the best available, it does not have toxic substances for humans or the environment that cause allergic reactions. It is ecological, biodegradable and environmentally sustainable.
This backpack is the brother of the regular ‘Amicus Backpack’ but it is made using two kinds of leather. The front body part is made using a tumbled grain leather with a soft touch and the rest is made with our classic Buttero veg-tan leather. The front flap locks securely with a solid brass buckle. The regular size features a laptop sleeve where you can fit up to 15” screen, then, it has a pocket inside to fit your phone and wallet or other small items.
Available tints: Black/Black, Dark Brown/Dark Brown, Dark Green/black
