Kelo Elk Backpack

650  Traditional retail price: 1400 €


Functionality Kelo is designed for doers to last for year to come. Adjust the soft elk leather sholder straps fit just for you and carry your camera equipment or yoga mat on the side wherever you go. The inside pockets keep your important bits and bobs together and it has a separate slot for trusty laptop.

Roots Kelo follows our best-seller Kiulu handbag’s style, inspired from an age-old wooden bucket design. While the traditional version still serves its purpose by cleaning minds and bodies in saunas, Kelo was designed to be just as timeless and functional for everyday use.

DNA Kelo is made of Nordic elk leather gathered from permissioned population control hunters. Biodiversity is protected with this government-regulated action. Despite the superior quality in leather, elk hides usually end up being buried back to the ground. The leather is ethically tanned in Kokkola, Finland.
