Editor’s Pick: The Perfect Leather Backpack

The everyday bag that goes with everything

I’m always on the lookout for a nice leather bag that’s not too big or too small, too flashy or poorly made. This backpack, which is part of an accessories collection made by Turkish leather manufacturer Desa, is just right. Rivaling that of Mansur Gavriel's popular style, the simple bag features a drawstring, one continuous, clean seam and back straps made from one cut of leather. The streamlined design is both beautiful and impressive, and the suede interior and zipper pocket just add to its perfection. The price point seems steep, but when you factor in how much you would wear it (every single day), this backpack pays for itself.
