Our Flamingo Kids Backpack is hand sewn from East African Kitenge fabrics, made and sourced locally in Eldoret, Kenya!
Not only is our backpack cute as the dickens, it is roomy and comfortable to wear. There is a large zippered opening, padded lining, and adjustable shoulder straps so an adult can wear it just in case you were wondering. Convenience handle makes it easy to keep track of when not wearing.
Although this backpack is sized for kids, it's also wearable for the bigger kids who are young at heart!
