A Little History of This Bag

Ellie has been making bags for 17 years through her company RE Load Bags. This bag is actually a discontinued RE Load design reimagined. Over the years bag designs have come-and-go, but this bags has remained constant as our favorite everyday bag. That is why we are stoked to offer the Denim Backpack in a limited run of 8 bags to you.

On Limited Runs

All of our product runs tend to be extremely limited, because they are constrained by our access to materials. In the case of this bag, we found some amazing water resistant denim fabric-- but only 10 yds of it. On top of that, Ellie's past apprentice, Mari Montacelli, who is a silkscreener extraordinaire, was able to print a couple yards of Dustin's Scallop Motion design on some heavy-weight denim for us before she reclaimed the screen. We were only able to get 8 pockets out of this hand-printed denim, so hence, a limited run of 8 backpacks was possible. We hope you enjoy these bags as much as we do.
