MUICK Waxed Canvas and Leather Backpack
Inspired by trips beside lochs in the Cairngorms, wandering through the pine forests on an overcast day, and taking inspiration from the unique colour palette of the dramatic, mountainous scenery of one of my favourite places in Scotland. Named after one of my favourite lochs in Scotland, Loch Muick.
The Fernweh UK "MUICK" backpack is a bag inspired by a sense of adventure, but perfect for everyday use around town. Designed and handcrafted in our Aberdeen studio from start to finish, using the best quality materials to create a true companion on your adventures. The outer is made from rugged Scottish waxed cotton, featuring a double slip pocket on the front for easy access. The bottom is reinforced, with leather lash tabs for attaching a yoga mat, sleeping bag, any extra carry you need on your daily activities. The back is quilted to give extra padding and comfort when worn, and the adjustable oak bark tanned leather straps are wider at the shoulders, to help spread the weight across the back when worn. All finished with a secure rolltop fastening, meaning you can be sure your belonging are protected, from whatever life throws at them.
But the outside is just the beginning. The inside of the bag reveals a magnetic snap close to keep the rolltop secure, along with an array of pockets for organisation. The lining is made from a crisp Scottish dry finish waxed cotton, for an extra layer of weatherproofing from the elements. On the back, is a zip pocket for keeping documents, passport, phone safe and secure, but also within reach is a d-ring for clipping keys too, a laptop sleeve and another double slip pocket.
Entirely created from waxed canvas which is made in Dundee, Scotland and oak bark tanned leather from the UK's only remaining oak bark tannery. Sewn with bonded nylon thread for strength.
