Ackee 1-2-3 Sling Mini Backpack - Custom Commission
This Ackee 1-2-3 Sling Mini Backpack was a custom commission. We wanted to park it in the gallery so you could see some design options available for custom orders.
This functional and fun sling backpack showcases the yellow ackee beautifully against the complementary rust and black cork. It has a front flap pocket which zips up on both sides and has a turn lock at the top; the interior of the pocket has zip and slip pockets and side gussets. The main compartment of the bag has a zipper closure with two zipper pulls and the interior has two slip pockets. The adjustable strap is made out of seatbelt webbing and attaches to either a right or left side D-ring on the back of the bag, so you can wear it comfortably over either shoulder.
A custom commission, the ackee fabric is a tangible reminder of beautiful Jamaica.

Information about Cork Fabric: The cork fabric used on this bag is imported from Portugal and is real cork fused to a soft, flexible cotton woven fabric backing. Per the importer: this cork is a natural, sustainable, vegan, PETA approved, eco friendly product from Portugal. It is Touch Pro and upholstery grade quality. It has been treated with Scotchgard, UV and abrasion protectants. It can be wiped clean with a soft cloth and a weak soapy solution.
Important Notes about Cork Fabric:
Because of the nature of cork, coming from a natural wood source, the surface is pitted with small holes and cracks. This is part of the appearance and natural quality.
When folded, cork can sometimes have small superficial cracks that do not go through the fabric backing and do not affect the structural integrity of the project.
Dark and bright colored dyes can sometimes rub or wear off on sharp corners, such as boxed corners at the bottom of bags or folded edges.
You cannot iron cork as the heat will damage the glues used in making the cork fabric.
Expect normal wear and tear with use, especially on corners.
