In the middle of my many escapades around Manchester last week, I found a bit of time to meet up with the lovely ladies from Grafea, a local brand whose gorgeous handmade leather rucksacks I have lusted over for quite some time now. They took me for a wander around the Northern Quarter, where I had a standoff with a Mancunian rat (it touched my foot- I'm scarred for life), whilst posing for a few streetstyle shots with Grafea's chic white Salt rucksack (which was a match made in heaven paired with my white blazer, no?). It was a pleasure to shoot with Grafea, and also to become the proud owner of my very first piece of handcrafted leathery goodness- Could this be the start of something new? I don't know if it's the timeless beauty of them or that classic leathery scent that makes them so addictive. They also did a quick little interview with me, which you can view with a few more shots from the day on their blog, here :) 
Do you own a Grafea rucksack? Which is your favourite?
