WHO ARE WE?

This is us on the malecon of La Paz.
~---
Who are we? We are a French/American family and we live in La Paz, Baja, Mexico, a beautiful place with wonderful beaches and warm (or hot!) weather all year. Maybe you will detect some French accent in this post. We travelled a lot with our two younger kids in different countries on different continents, among which Ecuador stands out.

They both attended public school in a small village there for 1.5 years and got to learn Spanish and a very different culture at a young age. Our two older sons live in Europe.

This is me (Christelle) with my older sons, Gabriel and Hadrien.

This is a family business where all of us contribute motivation, ideas, suggestions regardless of their age. Even grandma loves this backpack and is helping out.

Backpack love story: I had been looking for the perfect backpack on line and in stores for 15 years. I needed a very practical backpack that would organize my keys and cellphone perfectly, that would be nice looking, very comfortable to wear, reliable and classy enough for everyday use in town, durable for travel, breathable and non sweaty for hikes, horse rides, bike rides, plus unisex, in natural fibers and washable 😅. That’s a ton of requirements. Some quality brands came close to fulfill those but not close enough. Maybe you've been looking for something like this too.

Tired of the search I finally came up with my own design 3 years ago and had it hand woven by master weavers in Oaxaca, Mexico 😱. What came out is an amazing handmade backpack that is for sale on a different website. It's not this backpack here.

In 09/2019 I decided to have the exact same model made industrially in hemp and cotton in China. It’s this backpack. All in all this design ripened in my head for 15 years and came to completion recently. It is now available at a very reasonable price. Click here if you wish to see it.

Our aim in this company: to be as transparent as possible, keep a close relationship with our very cool customers (we find them truly amazing) and maintain good quality control over manufacturing. It's almost as if this business involved more than just us personally.

There will be another blog post concerning the brand name 😂 and the little blue guy on the logo. Many people already told us that they really like both. Anybody is very welcome to communicate with us on any subject, business-related or not. Click here if you wish to do so.
