Description

Baksteen is a minimalistic crossbody bag designed and manufactured by Solahanpu. The external layer of the bag is made of canvass material while the internal layer is made of the water-proof material called tarpaulin. Baksteen's zipper is placed hidden right behind your back, making it impossible to open without your knowledge. You have probably noticed that any crossbody bags or messenger bags tend to swing toward your side when riding a bike. The mini-strap comes with Baksteen prevents the annoying swing from happening ever again. There are two pockets inside Baksteen; one is behind the opening lid, the other is in the main compartment. Internal pockets are divided into 3 sections. Baksteen means a "brick" in Dutch.
