Disco Backpack

The Story:

Simple, convertible and versatile.


The Disco Backpack was first designed for photography extraordinaire and all around nice guy, Jesse Hisco. We call him here in the workshop, Jesse Disco, and logically it follows that the bag is named thus.

This is the ultimate combination of practicality and style, being convertible from a backpack to an over-the-shoulder satchel while still maintaining a minimal sleekness.

Please note a small ‘Wootten Handmade in Melbourne’ logo is subtly placed on the back panel with current production rather than on the front lid.

The leather we use for our bags is vegetable-tanned leather from Victoria, which differs to the consistent smooth finish that you find in most commercial bags. The bag will naturally have character and slight imperfections on the leather which we embrace. The bags once made can be stiff until they are used and worn in where it becomes more buttery in feel. Please allow time for this to develop with this natural material.

Please note variations in leather colour occur naturally between hide to hide. This is most common in the brown colour which is often lighter and more of a milk chocolate hue. The black is also not a deep black, but more of a grey/black and will vary also depending on the time of the year due to the vegetable tanning process

Please note that all our goods are made-to-order unless stock already exists in our shop in Melbourne. Lead times can be found in our footer below for leather goods and footwear.
