Our long awaited Backpack Canasta is here! After many prototypes and lots of your feedback, we landed on a design that offers the secure closure of a zipper as well as the flexibility of an open top bag. Use one or both closures for your different needs. Show off those market goodies or keep it all tucked away. Adjustable leather shoulder straps and a woven carrying handle give you two ways to carry your new favorite bag. Perfectly sized for a full day outing or a trip to the farmer’s market.
Vegetable tanned leather straps and flap will darken with use.
L 17" x H 12" x D 5.5"
14” leather strap drop and 4” handle drop on the circle handle
Please note: Basket and leather straps are hand made and colors will vary. Our baskets are made from natural palm fiber, please be gentle with your new bag.
Caminito was born to celebrate the local craft and traditions of Mexico and California. Our name Caminito means small wandering path. For this new chapter we will be directing our focus toward celebrating life’s simple joys. Take the slow road and admire the shapes in the clouds. Lounge on a blanket while sharing laughs and snacks. Cozy up with a good book under one of our warm blankets. Most of all we’d love to have you embrace the time and effort that goes into each of our handcrafted goods.
Born on the border of California and Mexico, we were raised at a cultural crossroads. As a mother and daughter team (Elizabeth and Liz) we collaborate with skilled artisans from our home country of Mexico. The design process starts at our Bay Area studio, taking inspiration from its diverse landscape. Our colorful blankets come straight from a family run business in the heart of an old artisan city in Mexico. We then handcraft our leather straps in our San Diego studio and ship all our goods from there. Each item is created as a tribute to Mexico’s color and craft. Take a stroll, sit back and stay awhile.
