minimal rucksacks by Chris Van Veghel

I’m not an earrings or bracelets kind of girl… but I do get excited by good bags and the latest to pique my interest are these minimal rucksacks by Chris Van Veghel over on Etsy. Made of leather and rope, these rucksacks can be adjusted to also be a tote bag. Pretty ingenius, right? Chris makes each bag in his Amsterdam-based studio. It’s pretty hard to pick a favorite, but I’m loving this black rucksack with natural colored rope.
