We created these three packs in this spectacular Honey yak-leather tanned at the Finnish Kokkolan tannery. We still had a little left from one of the first-ever Specials packs made already around three years ago. The Racing Green vegetable-tanned frame is from Conceria Virgilio. This legendary dark and rich hue of green bears its name from British Racing Green, first seen in a motor race held in the very first years of the last century. This pack will patinate absolutely beautifully as the honey leather darkens and gains richness.
Conceria Virgilio is from the town of San Miniato in Tuscany, halfway between the cities of Pisa and Florence, in a region especially known for its leather industry.
The Fold Top is our most popular product and it turns heads wherever we go. As a product that lasts a lifetime, it is an investment that only gets better, more sustainable, and affordable with time. Stylish for city use. Sturdy for forest hiking. Easily big enough for a weekend trip. Compact to carry on as cabin luggage. Its ergonomics are designed to keep it comfortable even after full days of carrying heavier loads. It might just be the last backpack you’ll ever need.
The vegetable-tanned leather’s excellent properties have been taken advantage of in the design. The body of the pack is designed in a way where the L-shaped monocoque-like leather back structure provides support to help distribute loads as a framed pack would. As the backpack is packed, the additional internal structure of your gear will enhance the structural skins' ability to carry the load. Combined with wide 60mm leather straps that conform to your body over time, this makes for a leather pack that is exceptionally good at carrying even heavier loads for prolonged distances. You can read more about the features from Carryology's review.
A detachable computer sleeve that fits up to 17" laptops is included. The sleeve attaches only at the top to let the bag conform to the shape of your back. It also works as padding when the bag is packed full. The six external attachment points for external gear like camera tripods, fishing rods, or camping gear.

About Kasperi Originals
Kasperi Originals are the first and sometimes the only items of their kind. They are items with a meaningful history. They are items with a certain significance.
We dream of a world where all types of items are used for life and cherished. A world where memories and stories connect to the things we own and use. A world where those stories get passed on together with the things. A world where things are valued for the memories they create. Kasperi Originals is an ode to that world.
Sometimes they are the first pieces of a classic batch, used and tested hard. Sometimes they are untouched experiments. Sometimes they've been around and seen the world. Sometimes they are the markers of a milestone.
Kasperi Originals are pieces, made to be used, cherished, and passed on for generations.
