Convertible backpack/sling bag - MONTSERRAT
On the small Caribbean island of Montserrat an active volcano that vents ash onto the southern side. The northern side is lush and green. The colors in my MONTSERRAT convertible backpack reflect each side of the island. The tropical colors of lime green, bright pink and orange represent the jungle of the north while the grey signifies the volcanic south. The front panel fabric has grey shimmery waves that really embody the flow of ash.
The other high-end designer home décor fabrics compliment each other in color while contrasting in texture to give MONTSERRAT an appealing fusion of style. Handmade zipper charms complete the island mood.
More than striking in design, my original creation is extremely functional. It can be worn as a conventional 2-shoulder style backpack or switched into a one-shoulder "sling" type bag or cross body bag by zipping the straps together and moving the swivel clips to one side.
It is fully lined in a lime/white geometric pattern with the bottom interfaced and slightly padded to add soft structure. The front zippered pocket is 7" wide and 8" deep. The main compartment is accessible from the right hand side by a zipper. On the opposite side on the back there is another zippered compartment that sits flat, perfect for your tablet.
The straps are adjustable for length. The hardware is antique brass metal swivel clips, slides, and D-rings. The zippers are 4.5 YKK.
Dimensions are: 17" tall, 4.5" deep, and 13" at widest point, tapering to 7" wide at top.
