After searching for a durable but stylish carryall and coming up empty, Gina DeWolfe—a School of Fashion Design grad—took matters into her own hands, literally. Using tools she inherited from her grandfather, she created this backpack, which features a spacious interior, adjustable straps, and wax-thread stitching. The design drew plenty of compliments, prompting DeWolfe to launch her own line of hand-cut and stitched bags using Chelmsford-sourced leather.
