My grandmother Mary was one of the most talented makers I have ever known. Back then women like her were just known as farm wives, but now the talents she had are rare and respected. I was just starting my craft work when she was suffering from dementia pretty badly. I was able to show her an early piece I had done and it brought her back to her childhood. She said (repeatedly) that my Jackson backpack reminded her of the backpacks the kids would carry to school when she was a child in the 30's and 40's. I was honoured I could show her something that could connect her to a fond memory. I was honoured that she seemed impressed with the quality.

Simple and surprisingly rugged, this bag has an understated elegance and beautiful versatility. It has the same basic pattern and features as the Luella tote, but as a grandmother, Mary didn't need to carry as much as mothers typically do. All they really need is candy for their grandchildren!

  • Same basic pattern and features but smaller than the Luella tote
  • Includes a shoulder strap for cross body wear
