This is a dual look backpack. You can change the look of your backpack in a second.
Great for those day when you need to carry your laptop and books.

This backpack / rucksack is great for outdoor activities. The exterior of the backpack is made with weather resistant waxed canvas, durable quality leather, and heavy duty webbing. The interior lining is made with commercial water repellent cotton canvas. Other Fabric combinations are also available in the shop now.

How to change the look?
Just hook the two clasps together and close the flap.
When you want the regular corner up look, you can use the clasp as a key hook too.

Enjoy.

Another hot day in the bay. Can’t really work without a classic cold carbonated drink.
Yes, I’m working on a new rucksack/backpack with waxed canvas, and I start working with leather too. A lot of new things to learn, and I’m enjoying it.

The new rucksack/backpack will be available in my shop soon.

post SF & LA renegade craft fair

I always like the Fort Mason venue, an indoor high ceiling well-lighted structure. When I want to take a break during the fair, just exit the building, there would be a panoramic view of the bay. One the left you can see golden gate bridge, Alcatraz in the center, east bay and piers on the right.

Adventure : half day in London

Last year, I needed to travel to the other side of the world. Because of the long distance, I had to stop over at London. I decided to take the next flight instead, so I would have 18 hours transiting time to get out of the airport and spend half a day in London.

Love:
London is a very walkable city (at least for the area that I went to). After landing at London Heathrow, I headed to my hostel, which is right next to the british museum, and dropped off my luggage. From there, I covered British museum, Soho, Trafalgar Square, House of Parliament, Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly Circus, then back to the hostel by walking. Everything is in close proximity.

Hate:
I went there around early November, thus, daylight is very short. Sun goes down early around 6pm, and it doesn’t come up before 8:30am or maybe even later. The long gloomy weather is just not very welcoming.

Obviously, half day is not enough to know a city. I hope I could visit London again.
