I gave up backpacks long ago and now only use a tote bag. The problem with that is it's impossible to find anything when it all gets jumbled together.
Get ahead of that problem with a little Zipper Pouch, like this one from Kiriko. Dyed indigo with an adorable usagi (rabbit in Japanese) print, this piece is just whimsical enough to be fun and functional enough that your friends won't tease you. Finished with leather and brass hardware, this little bag will kick your storage game up many notches.
Size: 10" x 8.5"
