Floto leather backpacks for men and women are handcrafted in Italy using natural full grain calfskin leather and materials. Read More...
At Floto, we work with different kinds of leather to make our leather backpacks. Every shoulder bag and backpack is made with 100% genuine leather. We prefer vegetable tanned leather because it is strong, flexible, and has deep, rich color tones without any harsh chemicals.
Our classic Vecchio Brown, Olive (Honey) Brown, Tuscan Red, and Black leather knapsacks are made from full grain vegetable tanned calfskin leather. Each backpack has a polished, semi-gloss finish that gives it durability and helps prevent stains. The Firenze Backpack is made with hand tanned vegetable calfskin leather that is supple and easy to polish. The Parma Collection backpack (arriving December ‘16) is made with vegetable leather that has been lightly tanned with chestnut extracts and natural oils. We hand paint and tan the Firenze Backpack and Parma Backpack leathers in Santa Croce, Italy using only vegetable extracts and natural oils. We call this Etruscan style tanning because the process dates back to the Etruscan period in Tuscany. No matter what Floto backpack you choose, over time the Floto leather will soften, patina, and develop a warm, silky touch.
Some Floto leather backpacks are made with durable 8 oz cotton duck canvas lining that is made in South Carolina. The combination of beautiful Italian calfskin leather, Italian craftsmanship, and strong American made lining makes an original Floto leather backpack.
