We wanted to celebrate our fifteenth anniversary by creating something unique. The Come Along is the first backpack in our collection, and the design process has been different than usual…
The Come Along has been a long time in the making. We designed the backpack and the print, but for some reason it didn’t feel quite right. Fortunately I listened to my instincts, and now we’ve created the perfect bag. One that will keep you company for many years to come.
Before we put any bag into production, I use the prototype for a while so I can test it for myself. Are the pockets in the right place? Are the shoulder straps long enough, do all my things fit into it easily? I always come up with improvements. In this case, I made a completely new sample just before we visited our sewing studio in Poland. One that immediately felt like a perfect fit with the family of the Wish Tree, Small Wishes, and Little Fox.
When we arrived there, we drew on the expertise of their pattern-making specialist to ensure the design was exactly what we wanted. And the result is the Come Along: a stylish backpack you can use for work and leisure, with space for a 16-inch MacBook and your day’s shopping.
This timeless new Keecie model will keep you company on trips at home and abroad for many years to come. Once again, there’s a beautiful silkscreen print on the inside. I often take inspiration from botanical gardens such as Hortus in Amsterdam and others that I visit on holiday. This source of inspiration is reflected in the print of the Come Along.
The new backpack is available in lots of colours. Fourteen, to be precise. If you’d like to choose one in the comfort of your own home, email us for colour samples.
