Rachael Ruddick backpacks

Walk down any street in Surry Hills and not only will you find Sydney’s entire population of parking inspectors, you’ll spot hipsters carrying vintage backpacks from the nineties. Thankfully, there is now an alternative to looking like Elaine out of Seinfeld. Designer Rachael Ruddick creates luxurious calfskin backpacks for those drawn to beautifully made pieces, not geographical-based trends.

These soft and slouchy packs aren’t just aesthetically pleasing; they’re also extremely versatile. Swing one across your shoulder and work it duffel style or wear it unzipped as a backpack. Whichever way you come packing, you can be sure that this is one bag that won’t have an expiration date.
