Peralta Balani Backpack

TrailblazerGirl - Aug. 24, 2015

“A beautifully made bag. We hesitate to call it a backpack because that conjures up visions of camping and roughing it. The Balani Backpack from San Francisco-based Peralta is far from that. This is a fashionable, chic-looking bag that will take you to work and beyond.”

What is coated taffeta material?

We chose this material, because it is lightweight, highly durable, and easy to wipe off. It will look new even after years of use. With a versatile material like coated taffeta, you can use your backpack in many settings without worrying about nicks and scuffs.

What is ballistic nylon?

Ballistic nylon is another durable, nearly-indestructable material that can take dings and nicks and bounce right back still looking good. The black color never fades so it will look like fresh even after many years of wear and tear. We chose ballistic nylon material to provide you with another choice without sacrificing quality.

Why use full grain leather?

Full-grain leather has a super tight grain so it resists moisture very well, and it's strong and durable. We believe in making products of the highest quality—we never skimp on materials. Full-grain leather is ideal for handles; your fingers will feel the difference. Of course, leather lines the bottom to help the backpack withstand various surfaces. The leather also develops a beautiful patina so it will add to the backpack's character over time.
