In the quest to properly outfit my daughter for her freshman year at Georgetown University, this summer we have discovered some incredible companies. One is Grafea, the British leather goods retailer known for its exceptionally high quality accessories, including gorgeous leather backpacks in jellybean colors.
Grafea was founded in 2005 and began to create stunning handbags, satchels, and briefcases. These pieces blended traditional British craftsmanship with the highest quality full grain leather. Both beautiful and durable, Grafea designs are effortlessly chic with a truly timeless quality.
After much deliberation, my daughter selected a leather backpack in a soft, pale yellow called Butter Milk. It was a difficult choice! Pink Lemonade, Clover, and Misty were also top contenders from the Hari Collection.
But, there are so many other covetable collections, as well.
For example, the Kaleidoscope Collection features leather backpacks with multicolored panels. The backpacks in the Lacey Collection have a trendy lace-up back. And, the Limited Edition options are customized with everything from tartan accents, to safari embellishments, to crocodile print.
My daughter’s Butter Milk classic backpack is 100% full grain leather and features two adjustable shoulder straps, one large front pocket, and two small side pockets. It is wonderfully detailed, with fine stitching and classic hardware.
The Butter Milk leather backpack retails for $256, but is currently on sale for $197. Plus, all items over £50 within the UK mainland are delivered free via UPS next day courier. In the US and Canada, Grafea offers free delivery for all orders above £140. For daily conversion rates of British pounds to US dollars, click here.
