Navajo Backpack (Medium)

One of a Kind - Custom Piece

This original, one of a kind, rucksack is made from a vintage Navajo rug found in Arizona while Mike was working on a Navajo reservation and the bottom of a John Varvatos messenger bag that a friend gave him about 12 years ago.  The straps are vintage WWII officer's belts from the Swiss Army. This piece is completely hand cut and hand stitched and full of soul.

It was featured in several magazines including Philly Magazine, Vogue, and The Manuel, and continuously used as a representation of the kind of creativity and artisanal workmanship Waltzing Matilda USA is now known for. - Museum quality piece.
