Handmade Goofy Grinning Octopus Backpacks


Talented materials artist Olga Kotova has crafted an incredible line of unique, nature-inspired backpacks that includes a goofy grinning octopus, who carries a great deal of stuff inside his giant head, while his tentacles, complete with suckers, drape behind. The backpack is made from felted wool with a zipper and glass eyes. You can check out more of Kotova’s amazing work on Instagram.

Very original and convenient felted bag. It has two departments: the flat, suitable for large books or notebook (size of a zipper – 10.24in, height of a flat compartment – 16.93 in), and the large (there is also a pocket ). The tentacles can be fastened in different ways, as ordinary straps or crosswise. Felt from sheep’s wool, very compact, robust, in addition – perfectly protects your back against the wind! Looking for crazy octopus lover :) Will be a good gift to sailor man who loves the sea and marine creatures.
