We can also add your monogram, typically your initials or first name, to the bag. This is normally positioned in the middle of the front flap or panel. Please note that full-stops and punctuation are counted as characters. Your selection is also CaSe-SeNsItIvE and items that are personalised with a monogram cannot be returned for a “full” refund (because there’s an alteration charge) so please choose wisely

Generally, we can fit around 6 characters on the bag, but some characters are slimmer than others, (Lowercase “i” for example is a lot thinner than an uppercase “W”) so we can sometimes fit around 8 letters or more in the same area.

We’ll contact you by email if there are any problems or if anything is unclear.

Monogram Style

Please refer to our customisation guide for some examples of monogramming.

Hidden Magnetic Fasteners

Traditionally our bags come fitted classic buckle fasteners (which is the default), but if you want hassle-free quick access then you can also choose to have hidden magnetic fasteners fitted behind the classic buckle.

Shoulder Strap Style

Need more ways to carry your Portrait Backpack. Add a shoulder strap.

Adjust Backpack Strap Length

All our smaller backpacks can be used by children as well as adults, so if you want the straps making to a shorter length that is ideal for children or petite adults then please request we shorten the straps for you.

Shoulder Pad

If you predict the contents of your bag are going to be heavy then you may want to help spread the weight on your shoulder by using 2 shoulder pads with the backpack straps. It is removable and slips over the backpack straps and can be added on to our 19mm and our 25mm wide straps. It is also a little curved so that it fits comfortably over your shoulder and is lined with suede to help cushion the downward force on your shoulder.

Shoulder Pad Colour

Choose the shoulder pad colours to go with your new bag. If you prefer to have the 2 shoulder pads in the same colour as that of your bag then leave this black. Please refer to our colour guide to better understand the colours.

Volume Boost

Boost the volume of your bag by adding 20mm to the gusset to give you that extra space to carry all your important things.

Add Address Window

The address window is something unique to our classic satchels. Now you can have this personalisation on your backpack.

Gold Hardware

Everyone loves a bit of gold. Now you have the option to have gold coloured hardware in your favourite bag.

Gift Wrap

Are you getting this for someone special? Give it that special touch by having it personally gift wrapped by our team.

We did something refreshing with our Portrait Backpack. Because sometimes smaller is better. This Small Portrait Backpack aims to pack the same punch but in a smaller package.

Our Small Portrait Backpack is hand-crafted in Liverpool England using high-quality ethically sourced heavy leather in Charcoal Black leather at a level that only our highly sought after master craftsmen are able to deliver. It is stitched together using a blend of cotton and nylon for extra durability and finished with metallic rivets and our iconic double buckle fasteners.

The main compartment of this Small Portrait Backpack is designed to fit A5 paper and will allow you to carry your 11-inch ultrabook your A5 sized notebooks and other small documents easily. The front pocket which can fit an Amazon Kindle will help you organize your things and give you easy access to your most frequently used daily items such as your mobile phone notebook pens keys etc without having to go into your bag.

This design also features two removable and adjustable backpack straps and a briefcase handle which let you wear it as a backpack or carry it by its handle. The buckle fasteners will keep your items securely inside. As with all of our products to ensure quality and authenticity of our British craftsmanship we have blind embossed our classic logo on the reverse of this backpack. We have been crafting our own backpacks and bags in our UK workshop for over 50 years and have been shipping to more than 100 countries around the world.
