Collection # 1 was the start of Moo-chila “Moochila” and its backpacks. Our goal was to make durable leather backpacks that satisfied both functionality and style. The exterior of our backpacks are made with two different types of leather known in Ecuador as flor fina and curado graso. Flor fina is a type of leather known for its smooth texture and resilient qualities while curado graso preserves the texture and allure of leather and thus provides a more natural look. All interiors are lined with a beautifully crafted Moroccan leather. The all-leather component was an important factor in not only creating a high-quality product, but also one that ensures a unique rustic style. This is further achieved by artisans manually hammering in every evenly spaced hole and then hand-stitching all ends together. A specially built-in feature is the option to attach our solar panel charger. Wearers of Moo-chila backpacks have the ability to charge their phone or small electronic devices without the inconvenience of a required wall outlet. So whether you are hiking, biking, going out for a swim, or just taking a stroll out in the sun one can rest assured that their phones will maintain charge as long as needed.
