pangolin backpack

 

 

this unusual backpack is modeled after the protective scales on the back of an animal known as the pangolin. the bag is handmade in columbia using recycled tire inner tubes from trucks. the design is arranged so the pieces retract onto one another rather than a standard zipper enclosure. the design mimics the razor sharp scales on the back of the spiny pangolin. the design is kept closed using 3 magnetic closures and provides a large storage capacity. using the tire tubes makes the bag extremely durable and gives it a unique appearance. inside the bag is filled with a series of storage pouches for keeping pens and other small things, while it is worn using two padded shoulder straps.
