Is this what you need when you buy The Sak Tahoe Backpack?
The original California lifestyle brand built on authentic design and hand-crafted details. Each high-quality leather and hand-crocheted bag is created thoughtfully to reflect our love of craftsmanship, artistry and global influences.
The Sak was born in 1989 when childhood friends Mark Talucci and Todd Elliott left their mundane corporate jobs to follow their dream of discovering new treasures and traveling the world. During a trip to Bali, Indonesia, they decided to start a business importing found treasures overseas to their hometown of San Francisco. A simple rattan and leather bag fashioned out of an everyday Balinese sleeping mat was brought back from a trip, sparking the idea to specialize in bags.
In 1994, the imported hand-crafted rattan bags were flying off retail shelves at major retailers, leading Mark and Todd to go one step further. The Sak brand originated from a simple, casual, relaxed bag with universal appeal. Staying true to texture, they created a singular bag from a unique fabrication using hand-crocheted nylon string. Starting a crochet craze , The Sak bag Style 120 was an overnight hit, becoming one of the most iconic bags of the 90s.
Style is constantly changing but our love for handcrafted design remains the same Each of our timeless leather bags and accessories are thoughtfully designed with signature handcrafted details and high quality leather. It is our distinct attention to detail and commitment to the highest quality that sets us apart.
In partnership with Leather Working Group tanneries, we source 87 of our leather from tanneries that comply with environmental sourcing processes and sustainable water usage.
It is our goal to source all of our leather from LWG certified tanneries by 2021.

Customer reviewsCute but I don t like the back of it
This bag is very cute and functional. It s small enough to be a reasonably sized purse or small backpack but roomy enough to fit quite a bit of stuff. It has several pockets which I like. I am only giving it 3 stars because the back of it the part that s against your back if you re wearing it as a backpack is made of cloth material instead of leather. So anything fuzzy on your sweater gets left on the bag. I don t know why the manufacturer didn t make this whole part leather. Also, this seller only takes returns if the bag still has all original packing and tags. By the time I realized that the back being cloth is an issue the tags were off and I had already used the bag. So I m stuck with it but would have returned it otherwise.
