Product Information

Our Sling Backpack has met its mini. 

This beautiful, versatile bag is more than just a backpack. It's also a tote and a shoulder bag. The two back straps can be pulled upwards through the top tab to transform the bag into a tote with an 8" handle drop, perfect for in-hand or on-shoulder carry. Bring the straps back down and the bag is a backpack once again, ready for hands-free travel. 

The unlined interior provides ample room, and the bag can be compacted and brought close to the body by adjusting the collar buttons on the interior straps.  




The monogram on the Mini Sling is subtly placed on the interior pocket of the bag, slightly below the zipper. The font is Times New Roman and stands about 1/4" in height. You have the option of debossed (pictured) and gold (not pictured).

My New Mini backpack.

The Cordovan Color is so pretty, and the leather has such a nice texture. It’s my new favorite bag. They take such great care in making sure that it’s well protected when it’s shipped out. I will definitely purchase another bag from them. Thank you Greg for all your help.

Office to weekend adventures

I love this bag. Seamless transition from office life as a sling to weekend adventure backpack. Holds all my stuff plus extra room for a few of my child's must haves. If you're thinking about getting it, just do it, you'll only regret not having one of Lotuff's products.

My first... I hope not my last.

I got this bag in the natural. The leather is really beautiful, the stitching is done really well. This is a minimal, practical bag which I will likely carry more hand-held than backpack. I look forward to the patina that develops as it ages. Saving up for one of those big totes.

Stunning peice.

This is my fifth handbag purchase from Lotuff Leather and I have many of their accessories as well. All of their products and very well made and the leather is very thick and soft. I'm proud to be wearing something made in the USA.

Loving my Everyday Piece

Bought this mini backpack in Ochre and I love it. The mini size fits all my daily essentials and even a light cardigan. The leather had to breathe for a few days after I received it for the leather smell to dissipate and the leather hook/strap allowing the bag to convert from a shoulder bag to backpack took a few weeks to loosen up so the change could happen more quickly; however, those were both signs of a well made bag that I was happy to deal with temporarily. Unluckily for me, the very first time I used it, someone spilled coffee on my beautiful new bag, but thankfully you can't really see the spill on this color...
