Back to the Basics: Builford Basic Backpack

The internet has done some strange things with the word ‘basic,’ just like it has with ‘daddy’ and a host of other expressions. But going back to basics is more than that, and sometimes, in a complicated and crazy world, that’s exactly what we need to do.

Well, especially when it comes to Builford’s Basic Backpack that is. The Basic Backpack is part throwback, part just simple beauty. With one main compartment (including a padded laptop pocket) with a top flap zip and one outside pocket, the Builford Basic Backpack isn’t trying to fool anyone or make any false promises. It’s just what it is — but what it is, is gorgeous.

It’s hard to say exactly what it is — with the waxed canvas material that is Builford’s trademark and the easy-on-the-eyes design, it’s a vintage bag that’s not vintage, a bag that will last as long as you’re using it. There’s some 1940s/1950s in the design and the simplicity, but it comes with all the modern conveniences of the 21st century.

Builford bags all come with the promise of durability and fashion, and the Basic Backpack is absolutely no different. Order yours online today at and check out the pictures below of this awesome, vintage style backpack!
