Pangolin | Fair trade urban design backpack

We just added this handmade Pangolin backpack to our collection. Striking Fair trade backpack made of recycled inner tubes of trucks. The urban design of this backpack is very inventive and striking by using overlapping sliding parts, it seems like a Pangolin. The parts are alternately covered with recycled inner tubes of trucks attached to each other with a striking wing nut. The interior has canvas storage pockets in different sizes, some close with Velcro. Equipped with a convenient to transit the earplugs of your mp3 player, I-Pod or phone. Closes with 3 magnetic closures. The back is anatomically shaped so that the back pack fits on your back very pleasantly. This backpack is made by people from Colombia with a social disadvantage, such as single mothers, refugees and Indians of the Camentsa tribe. They can count good working conditions and pay above the minimum wage.
