The piece that inspired the brand, the daph. original backpack is perfect for fitting your 13” laptop and a few other light essentials for class; yet is mostly used as a fashion piece while on your commute to work or showed off out on the town. Handmade in the Peruvian mountains using the highest quality of sustainable leather, its feminine silhouette is the perfect backdrop for our camel or magenta natural dyes accented with our woven leather pattern on the front pocket. Small snaps on the top sides allow of easy expansion when putting items inside while leaving you assured, they will be securely set within the suede-lined backpack.

Say hello to Daphne 👋🏼 She is the designer, CEO, and founder of daph., a St. Louis-based fashion and lifestyle brand inspired by her Peruvian heritage.
While pursuing her MBA, Daphne was on the hunt for a functional, high quality, and fashionable backpack. When she couldn't find her dream backpack, she decided to design her own, incorporating the unique materials and craftsmanship of Peru. With that daph. was born.
daph. is one of the only U.S. fashion and lifestyle brands that solely combines modern, timeless designs with Peruvian resources and handcraftsmanship.

Cleaning Instructions: For light cleaning, wipe with a damp cloth. For more serious cleaning, please contact a leather cleaning professional.
Note: This is all-natural leather, therefore hides natural markings and characteristics are present. Dark clothing may rub off on the surface of the light-colored leathers. Due to the natural, unlined quality of the leather, there is a chance color-crocking may occur on very lightly colored items in the dark-colored bags. Rain also has the potential to cause color-crocking.
