I used to be Canvas and Plastic Offcuts - Adult's Smaller Backpack

Shipping calculated at checkout.

An Adult's smaller backpack made mainly from a plastic and similar offcuts that were going to waste. These materials are both really difficult to recycle. The material feels like a light canvas material that has a plastic coating. As well as the items being made from the offcuts, I have also stitched smaller off cuts on top of the purse making this item unique. Included in these offcuts are a woven type material. All items are handmade in Cornwall.

These materials are very difficult, if not impossible to recycle. These bags have a fold down top and close with a plastic clip. They have a handle so they are easy to carry and two adjustable backpack straps. Perfect to store your items for walks and more! The webbing strap by the clip also has part of a punctured inner tube to keep the end of the strap safe. 

This bag measures when closed, 14” high and 10” across tapering to 6” approx across at the base. Unfolded, when fully open, the bag is 19” high. What is great about this bag is it has a tapered base meaning it’s roomy with a boxy base, approx 4" wide tapering. This then tapers towards the top. The back pack straps go to about 37” at the longest but of course these can go smaller also as they are adjustable. Please check the sizing will suit your needs before purchasing. Due to the nature of the material used, this bag is organically shaped and may be slightly wonky and organic shaped in areas, but this is the beauty of this material!

Please note, as the material used it repurposed, there may be some signs of wear or markings on these items but this is the beauty of them. The bags are not waterproof due to the stitching used to create these items. We try and repurpose as much material as we can, but other components used on these items such as zips and webbing straps are not always repurposed, but they are where ever I can get them. If they are reused i will state this, if not please assume they are new items. As with all Flotsam Flo items, this Item is for adults and is not suitable for children.
