+Product Info

+ Design & Product Details

Poly Bag Backpack

Poly bag is the result of 4 years of design, taking the core concepts of C+S theory into best practice. The exterior features a large external pocket, zipped to the front. Shoulder straps (as all backpacks do) as well as 2 carry handles that tuck away when not in use.

Inside is where the magic happens. Organised into 2 sides, that open fully, or more conventionally – with laptop, document and secure zipped pocket. Outside Poly is constructed from laminated waxed (rainproof) cotton canvas – whilst inside is trimmed with handwoven recycled cotton. All hardware is metal, including all zips and buckles.

A backpack that looks this good, and helps organise you this well is hard to find. Ideal as a daily driver, or as a travel companion it’s the perfect size and shape for everyday.

What others are saying.

Each review is a personal story.

It's a stylish design and big enough for my laptop, books and other bits and bobs. Delivery was quick and the customer service was great too. Thanks!

Excellent bags and fantastic customer service. Would highly recommend.

A micro wardrobe all equipped answering exactly single one of my daily need. Need a pocket... got 10 of them.You can lay it flat like a luggage and fill it of treasures ! I have It in green... goes with my eyes! Happy purchase!

Found Cora + Spink through a friend who owns a shop in Bath - waited a few weeks for the Aqua Green to come back into stock, but have been obsessed ever since. Reading the reviews I think they are right that this really is the perfect company and bag. Every pocket, every stitch feels good. And it's still vegan! What's not to love.


What size laptop fits?

The main compartment internal measurements are 30 x 38 x 8 cm  - fitting most 15 inch laptops. The internal slip pocket measures - 30 x 37 cm, ideal for nearly all laptops upto 14 inches. Poly is very practical.

We recommend measuring your laptop to make sure it's a good fit.

Is the bag waterproof?

The outside canvas has a unique water repellant treatment that makes the canvas rain proof. The natural and vegan process the canvas undertakes is ideal for all normal weather and conditions, it can also be further treated with Cora + Spink wax finishes. Over time the canvas will need to be topped up if you're outdoors lots. Please get in touch if you need more information. 

What is the returns policy?

We accept returns within 30 days where the product has not been used and is returned to us in the same condition (so we can sell it) as it arrived. This includes all straps, buckles, packaging, labels and other supplemental items included in the original sale. Please contact us directly to authorise and obtain a returns address. Full refund/returns policy is available here.  

Care instructions.

All C + S products are made by hand using natural materials. They are strong and robust, but do require care and attention to ensure they have a long and fulfilling life. We recommend removing mud and stains with a stiff brush, then use a damp cloth to gently remove any unwanted marks.

Due to the nature of the material finish, you may encounter fading of the canvas, this is to be expected. Don't  use harsh chemicals, and don't wash in a washing machine. Specialist cleaners can help, if you have a particularly difficult stain please contact us directly, and we will do our best to advise.

Is it vegan? ?

Short answer, absolutely yes. No animal products or by products are used in the production of the backpacks, this includes but is not limited to the glues and treatments, the inks, dyes and the waxes... the working environment where all the backpacks are made is exclusively used only for Core + Spink products, meaning we control all elements of production.
