Drawstring Canvas Backpack - Rosenrip
Whether you call it a rope-tie or drawstring backpack, or a duffle bag (see me previous blog), you will probably be familiar with the distinctive cotton fabric if you have ever been to Ikea.
Called Rosenrip, the design takes its name from an ornamental shrub, part of the vine berry species, that somehow found its way from California/Mexico to Sweden - and somehow manages to continue blooming in that much hardier climate.
Ikea’s floral design of reds, greens, yellow and mustard are striking on their black background and I’ve combined it with Aged Black Washpapa to provide extra strength to the base. Together, they make the bag both lightweight and durable.
Like my previous backpack, this is the ideal no-nonsense bag whether you are heading to the gym, running, cycling, or doing a bit of sightseeing.
Rosenrips bloom in April-May, but this bag is for all the year round.
