Care instructions

To ensure the leather print on your product is as durable as possible, we’ve worked hard refining our printing process and craftsmanship. As leather has a naturally textured surface, you may notice small surface differences. This is common for natural leather and leather printing. All leathers age naturally according to usage, and this can cause the print to wrinkle or fade slightly over time. It is possible the base color may show through the leather as it ages with wear. When not in use, we recommend storing your product in a protective dust bag or box to keep it looking its best. • Avoid prolonged exposure to extreme heat, sunlight, water, and chemical cleaners to maintain a bright and long-lasting print. • Avoid contact with light-colored fabrics or upholstery as the color may transfer. • While a light rain shower is unlikely to harm, we recommend protecting from rain. Should your product get wet, allow it to dry naturally away from direct heat. • To clean surface wipe only with a damp lint-free cotton cloth.

  • Wipe with a lint free cloth
  • Do Not Wash
  • Avoid high temperatures
  • Avoid direct sunlight
  • Avoid rain and water
  • Avoid chemical cleaners

About the Materials

We make your custom rucksack from the following materials: Nappa leather, faux suede, webbing, and mesh. Most of your 'Colville' backpack will be made from bubble textured Nappa, including the front, sides, base, and outside of the straps. Other bits will be accented with smooth Nappa, which will be the zip pulls and decorative tabs, handle, and strap attachments. The handle and adjustable part of the straps will be made from webbing material, while the inside of the straps and back of the bag will be an aerated mesh. This mesh is breathable on your back and provides cushion from anything inside. Our faux suede material will line the inside of your custom leather backpack. Aside from your photo on the front, all of the materials will be black.

Make a Collage

If you can’t decide on which photo to use, you can upload multiple images and create a photo collage. This can be done using one of our pre-set montage templates, or you can create your own entirely from scratch. It’s super easy to do and the possibilities are endless.

How to add your collage to your product

Step 1 – Click the start design button & select your product options.

Step 2 – Go to the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab, click the ‘add images/Text’ button on your product & ‘Select Images to Upload’ or use the Facebook/Instagram tabs.

Step 3 – Choose the images you want to use for your collage, upload & select them from the uploaded photos list.

Step 4 – Click ‘Create montage’ & select your collage style.

Step 5 – Add the collage to your design.

Hints and Tips

  • The more images you add to your collage the smaller each image will be. Fewer images will be larger and give you more clarity and detail.
  • The more people in an image, the less detail there will be. If you have 10 images of a group of five friends, each person will be smaller than if you have 10 images on just one person.
  • Try to make sure that the longest side of each image is around 3.93". There is a handy ruler built into the design tool to help you with this.
  • Smaller products will not be able to fit as many images as larger ones will.

Built to Last

We take all the care in the world to create your custom leather backpack, which is why we do it all by hand. We first print the front panel of leather with your photo or design, which then gets cut into the semi-circle shape. The printing technique we use is highly advanced so that the print will be part of the leather without the risk of peeling off. Then each material is cut and sewn together, making a completely custom made leather backpack. We check to make sure your custom rucksack is strong and polished before we package up your photo gift and dispatch it.

It's Your Call

There aren't many rules when it comes to making your custom leather backpack. There is one area to design, so you can upload a photo or design and be finished in just a few minutes. If you're using a single photo, we recommend using portrait orientation as this will best fill the space. Otherwise, you can create a collage with an array of photos or use a design such as a watercolor illustration. Then choose your hardware finish from gold, gunmetal, and nickel, as well as your stitching color from gray, cream, or charcoal. Once you've finished, our 3D preview will show you what your custom rucksack will look like.
