The Classic Messenger
The classic messenger bag is and always has been the go-to alternative to the backpack. The popular cross-body is perfect for girls and guys on-the-go. This gray messenger from Moop’s waxed canvas collection is perfect for those who love minimal, well crafted design. The sturdy fabric is constructed to get better with age, like leather or vintage denim, and the surprise pop of the turquoise lining makes this a must-have.
