Minerva Women's Leather Backpack


Minerva is simple and elegant — a leather backpack with a clean design and the right accents to make it special.

Minerva is an ideal accessory for a modern woman and her everyday needs. The minimalist design that shines through Italian craftsmanship makes this bag versatile — wear it with casual everyday clothes or smart business attire easily, all year round. The size strikes a perfect balance between compact and spacious, and it can comfortably hold a notebook, a wallet, a tablet or an e-reader, a water bottle, and other small items. Minerva is available in two colors and two premium leather options — black and cognac, and full-grain vegetable-tanned cow leather and full-grain napa leather. The interior is lined with robust canvas – use it every day and don’t worry about wear and tear. The flap design secures with two snap closures, and besides the main compartment, there's also a zipped back pocket where you can securely put in your most valuable small items. Carry the bag using the adjustable shoulder straps or the convenient leather top handle.
