One of Oprah's Favorite Things! The Clark Backpack in woolen tweed is a most-welcomed return to the classics. A sensational bag that will draw the eye of everyone around.
The tweed is a rough, woolen fabric and polyester, of a soft, open, flexible texture. It is woven with a herringbone structure. The polyester/wool plaid fabric is firm and durable, has strong wrinkle resistance and good heat resistance. Baekgaard Trim Vachetta leather is tanned in Italy.
The Clark Collection
Like a good book, tweed is always waiting for the next generation to discover it. Created from naturally water-resistant wool yarns that are woven into a classic windowpane pattern, the Clark Collection is made for long days on the go, no matter the weather conditions. All pieces are lined with cotton tattersall and trimmed with Italian leather.
About Baekgaard: Danish Born. American by Design.
In 1951, a young Danish immigrant named Peer Baekgaard came to New York City with $127, a few hand-carved toy boats, and one big dream. With only a limited grasp of the English language—and a tenacity he learned fighting in the Danish underground during World War II—he managed to sell his boats to FAO Schwarz, and a unique giftware business was born.
Peer’s legacy continues today with a new line of contemporary designs for businessmen and students alike. Peer liked to say he was “Danish by birth, American by choice.” This combination of ingenuity and can-do spirit lives on in every piece they create.
