West Manggarai Woven Backpack

45.00 AUD

Coming to you all the way from Flores island in Indonesia, this stunning cotton backpack was woven by the Manggarai people, an ethnic group from western Flores. There I searched for deadly komodo dragons, swam with manta rays, watched thousands of flying foxes migrate to the forest at sunset and discovered pink sand beaches, all with one of these beauties on my back. The soft cotton design and easy drawstring closure makes it the perfect accompaniment to any wild adventures.

The soft cotton design and easy drawstring closure make it the perfect accompaniment to any wild adventures.
