The commuter back pack is made in Melbourne by talented maker Cesar Marulanda.
It is a sleek and very lightweight backpack specially made for students and creatives wanting to carry the essentials from A to B, great for unexpected bulky or lengthy baggage.
The roll top opens fully to carry sketch pads, annoying long rulers, or paper rolls.
It features a large front zipper pocket for quick access to small items. It is padded on the straps to provide extra comfort if wearing all day long.
The panels are a unique collage of upcycled plastic bags heat pressed (not painted), thus creating a unique art piece just for you, that cleans the environment.

Everything composing this bag (except the polypropylene webbing and clip buckles) is handmade at the Aoracreo workshop.
The outer layers are made from recycled HDPE and LDPE plastic bags collected from local businesses that produce plastic waste during their daily operations in Melbourne Australia.
These plastics are turned into a durable, water-resistant and lightweight material that is fully recyclable, customisable and repairable.
The lining is made either from upcycled discarded tents collected at music festivals or upcycled fabrics from local shops and friends.
Both the plastic bags and upcycled tent tops, are water resistant, so you can make sure your items are going to be dry even in a stormy rain, however, plastic bags are not necessarily waterproof, and our methods of manufacturing avoid sealing tapes or waterproofing agents to avoid more waste, so over extended periods of time under heavy rain, water will eventually leak.
