Shops We Love: Handmade Backpacks by Ada Blackjack

Behance has been a treasure trove for discovering new makers to feature. That’s where I first encountered Ada Blackjack. The branding for this well-designed collection of handmade bags and backpacks is really worth exploring. There is history behind the name and it’s one of my great regrets that I didn’t get to connect with the team behind the brand on my recent trip to Barcelona, where they are based. Next trip, I promise. In the meantime, take a closer look at these handmade creations and pick up one for yourself.
