Sizing+-

Bag sizes are listed in the product description. If something is missing, or you need any further help, please email: hello@mamaowl.net and we will be happy to help you.

Product Care+-

If you want to remove dirt from your MELA products, simply wipe gently with a damp cloth and a little soapy water (if necessary). Hand wash only, keeping the lighter coloured straps and the leather parts away from each other. Do not submerse the whole item or leave it to soak as you may see some colour transfer onto the straps.

When drying, do not place on a heat source. The canvas could become tough or dry. Allow to dry at room temperature. Do not clean with disinfectant or chemical cleaners as these may bleach the product.

MELA
 recommend a GOTS-certified impregnation spray to improve the water repellence of the organic cotton canvas (do not impregnate leather parts).

Mela II Mini Backpack - Teal

Simple, practical. Great quality zips, funcional openings. My 5 yo seems very happy with it. No brainer, no nasties + great service from Mama Owl!

Almost perfect

I chose the smaller bag for myself as I’m prone to carrying far too much around, it’s the perfect size for all the essentials with a bit of room to spare. Not as water resistant as I’d hoped though, light rain soaked through it, but other than that the quality is brilliant.
