If cutesy-pie kiddy gear just isn’t your thing, and you want to inject class into every object within your home, then here is the children’s backpack for you. Italian leather with canvas, the Pierotucci
Toscanella is a great little carry-all for those
first years at pre-school or kindergarten and beyond.
With its super-lightweight styling, essential pockets and smart
striped lining, we can only hope that a childhood item such as this
will nurture impeccable taste and a sense of aesthetics.
Without being a total stickler for neatness and style myself, this
is something I try to instill in my boys when opportunity arises.
The beautiful Toscanella Backpack is available in many colours
including saffron yellow, dark brown, green, black, ivory, tobacco and
cream – hardly a lurid colour among them! Only vegetable dyes are used
on the leather so you know there are no nasties. They’re US$239 plus shipping from
