The Galapagos collection is a tribute to Galapagos giant tortoises - these endangered and vulnerable species. RIVACASE partners with Galapagos conservation trust in order to support its outstanding and important job of conserving the unique ecosystems of the Galapagos Archipelago and raise awareness of Galapagos conservation and, of course, to save Galapagos giant tortoises as well. The rounded shape of backpacks from this collection resembles the tortoiseshell of the variety that comes from that Pacific collection of islands. These vast creatures that can reach up to 1.2 meters in diameter are some of the oldest invertebrates on earth with one of them having been recorded as living up to 177 years old. These magnificent creatures who weigh an enormous amount have, unfortunately, suffered at the hands of human predation. Although in recent years their numbers have grown to a sizeable 19,000.
Smooth lines, rounded shapes typify this range. Khaki, Mocha, gray-blue - the colors of the earth, the colors of nature are what represent the range. They are our first series inspired by the rounded shape of a turtle shell. We wanted to inspire in others the sense of the familiar and beloved animals that we all loved as children, but which we also should adore as adults, and to create a city backpack for an adult, combining the aesthetics of minimalism and softness of forms. Minimalism is not only found through the clarity and severity of the lines, but also through the tactility, smoothness and softness. What is important - not only form, but also feel: soft denim melange, logo embroidery and the honeycomb mesh padding on shoulder straps provide softness, lightness, reliability and functionality to combine and create the Galapagos series.
high-quality water-repellent fabric
There is no doubt we all need to take extra good care of the belongings we carry with us these days. Gone are the times when all that we had with us was pens and booklets. We all need multiple electronic devices with us, all of which remain highly susceptible to moisture. That is why we have made sure that this Galapagos range comes with a high-quality water repellent fabric that will keep the water out and your items safe inside giving you the confidence to step out into the day come rain or shine.
RIVACASE embroidered logo
We at RIVACASE really believe in the products we create. We know that just like the tortoise, they are build to last and stand the test of time. We know the time that has gone into the design and construction stages and all the care that has been involved. This is why we are proud to stamp out the company logo, which of course happens in this instance to be especially relevant, the Galapagos Tortoise, onto our bags so that all can see it.
contrasting interior lining
We all know the hardship of being stuck trying to locate an important item like a wallet or a pen at the bottom of your bag. This process is made especially difficult and all the more frustrating if we are left to do it in the dark or in poor weather. One feature of this Galapagos range that will help you to circumvent this tedium is the fact that it comes with a contrasting lining meaning that you will be able to quickly locate your items and be in on your way in no time, and so maintain the forward momentum to your day.
Detachable key strap
The detachable key strap on the bags from this range is the kind of feature that you will be very thankful for on certain occasions. Not only does it lend a level of general organization to your day but it also stops you from those awful moments of being at a complete loss as to the whereabouts of your keys. This can be especially annoying if you are in a rush or have had a long day at work. With this key strap though you will know where your key is at all times of the day leading to smooth accessing of your house, car or wherever you need to get into.
