Recycled Inner Tube Hackney Backpack
This chic and stylish fair trade backpack is a fantastic way to carry your belongings around town or in the countryside. It has lots of useful pockets inside and out, including handy side pockets for carrying Welsh weather essentials such as an umbrella and a water bottle. It is also large enough for a laptop. And the fact that it is made from recycled inner tubes means that it is super strong, easy to clean and water-resistant (also great for our climate in West Wales). The pop of yellow around the zips contributes to the urban chic rucksack design. Why not team it with a burnt yellow Chiily's bottle for the ultimate in eco-friendly fashion?
