Backpacks are cool again. But wearing them slung across one shoulder is not. Here’s a roundup of some Maine-made packs.
Rough & Tumble
Ruggedly luxe is the perfect way to describe these leather bags, handmade in every way right here in Maine. They are designed in a church atop a mountain. DREAMY!
I love this springy botanical print, inspired by the house of Chanel, but at a much more reasonable price.
Canvas packs made for canoe trips or just bopping around town. Designed by Jane Barron in Kingfield, her designs came out of excursions to Alaska and from her experiences as a guide in Maine and Minnesota. Count on these for rugged durability and good looks.
Crafted by hand in Brunswick by the same waxed-canvas used in their boots.
