They Don't Make Them Like These Anymore

“ They don’t make things the way they used to anymore!” That was what my Dad used to say all the time. And it became evident what he was saying is true when I was looking to buy my third backpack in 2 years. It suddenly dawned on me that we were buying into the idea that things were not supposed to last and that fast fashion was the norm. That was when we decided to start Astray Goods Co. We wanted to create a brand that takes pride in how things were made. Where every piece was crafted individually by hand, slowly, deliberately, honestly.

The Rolltop Backpack

The Rolltop Backpack is our first product at Astray Goods Co. Sticking to our brand promise, the Rolltop Backpack is built to last a long time and we have spared no effort in making sure of this. This is achieved through the use of time tested materials and processes.

Built To Last

Right from the beginning, it was very clear that the main feature of our bags will be their built quality. We work with Craftsmen who have years of experience in bag making to create each bag by hand with features that enable them to stand the rigours of daily use.

The Rolltop Backpack is crafted out of 16oz Waxed Canvas. We use Bees Wax to wax our canvas as it is more environmentally friendly and provides better color protection and fastness for the fabric. The waxed canvas provides a weather resistant outer to protect your belongings.

While the centre bar buckle is the traditional way to fasten a strap, it can be too cumbersome and slow. We found the solution in the Conway buckle which provides the secure fastening of a traditional buckle with quick unbuckling.

Hidden at the back of the backpack is a quick access zipper to reach the main compartment of the bag.

Things to Note:

The Rolltop backpack is created using natural materials such as waxed cotton canvas and natural leathers. As such, each and every piece will be unique. When new, the bag will be stiff due to the wax content within the fabric. With use, white lines will appear on the waxed canvas and over time the fabric will soften after breaking in. The Vachetta leather used the bags will darken and create a patina over time.
