not your typical backpacks: 13 modern twists on a classic design

not your typical backpacks: 13 modern twists on a classic design

I love a good backpack. It can not only replace a purse but they are also great for weekend getaways and not having to check your luggage at the airport. They’re great for taking a picnic down by the water, or simple everyday use.

But, (no offense to Jansport) I’m no longer interested in the backpack I had in school. I want something modern, usable, and beautiful. So I thought I’d do a round-up of some of my favorites: for women, men, and children. (Not that age or gender really matter when it comes to style!) I’ve included backpacks made from materials like geunine leather, PVC, and even organic glass! I hope you find one you love.

There you have it: 13 amazing feminist gifts! I have a ton more saved in my favorites, so I imagine I’ll have another post like this, soon! Until then, keep resisting, smashing, and being YOU.

looking for feminist influencers!

I love a skinny white model as much as the next person, but you know what I love more? Inclusivity! Variety! REALNESS. 

I’m currently looking for people to share photos of themselves wearing my shirts, particularly on Instagram, but other platforms, too. And not (just) your typical “models” – in fact, the more atypical, the better.

I’m looking for people who are/have:

  • feminist
  • genders of all kinds
  • all sizes
  • all shapes
  • all colors/ethnicities
  • bi- or multi-racial
  • different abilities
  • different hair colors
  • pierced
  • tattooed
  • all ages 18+
  • have at least 1000 followers on Instagram

You don’t have to be any or all of the above.

You also don’t have to have a huge following (1000 – 15,000 is actually my preferred “sweet spot” – but we may be able to work something out of you have fewer or more!) The most important thing is that they are engaged and organic.

It would also be awesome if you lived in Portland so we can work directly together, but again, that isn’t required.

Does this sound like you or anyone you know? Please contact me here and we can chat!
