Cactus Print Backpack

Stow your stuff in style. Botanical artist A.R. Valentien’s watercolor painting of a beavertail cactus (Opuntia basilaris) is transformed into an allover print, and the artist’s signature adorns the underside of this unique pack.

The flowers of the beavertail cactus get their vivid colors from a type of pigment known to only a few plant families. Although this cactus’ lack of spines give it a benign look, it is well armored: thousands of hairlike spines—called glochids—form circular patches on the pale blue-green pads.

The medium-size backpack is made of water-resistant material and has plenty of room. It offers a big inner pocket, separate section for a 15'' laptop, front pocket, and a hidden pocket at the back for valuables. Approximate dimensions: 17” high x 12” wide x 4” deep; holds up to 44 lbs.
