Handmade in Canada. Introducing the KITS – our Convertible Tote Backpack. Crafted from durable, weather-proof twill, this versatile bag effortlessly transitions from a classic, modern tote to a functional backpack. Elevated enough for professional settings, yet casual enough for daily activities, the versatility of the KITS makes it the perfect bag for any situation. 

How it works: The KITS has two primary straps. The front strap of the bag serves as a fixed short handle. Meanwhile, the rear strap is versatile— it can function as a long strap for carrying the bag like a typical tote, or, by pulling it down to align with the front loop, it transforms into dual backpack straps extending from the back.
