As the new academic year has started I thought I could treat myself to a super cute rucksack to carry notepads and stationary in. Obviously, I love Arpakasso so I found a rucksack in pink on eBay! I know lots of people are worried about ordering Arpakasso online, but I can recommend the seller I used, Rosy61987 (Shop here)
When the package arrived it was safely packed in a brown envelope. When I opened the envelope I found this. Notice the cute little free gift parcel that was attached? Little cute touches like that really make a seller seem more friendly and personal.
The cute little gifts included some matcha candy, a cute usamimi style hairband, a little pony figurine and some adorably festive halloween stickers.
Sorry if the colour balance is a little off in some of these pictures. My flat has horribly yellow lighting so I tried to edit away some of the yellow-ness so everything was a bit less orange.
I have a couple of Arpakasso, but I am by no means a hardcore collector so to be honest with you I probably couldn’t tell a fake from a real, but I haven’t heard of people receiving fakes from this seller and mine definitely did look very official so I am pretty sure it is the real deal.
This is the back of the backpack to show you what the straps are like. The whole rucksack is extremely soft and fluffy, like I could use it as a pillow in the library very happily… not that I would ever do that though 😉
It is a little smaller than I expected, but I can still fit what I need to into it which is great. However, if you need to carry in huge heavy books then I don’t know if this would fit them easily. It’s definitely a sturdy feeling bag and all the stitching appears to be a high quality, but it doesn’t look like it is designed to hold that much weight.
I can definitely recommend both this rucksack and the seller. This is my new favourite bag!
