Is that a spider? Or is it floral? The black on white, or white on black design on this bag just depends on your perspective.

Cork and Canvas Weekender
Canvas on the bottom, and cork on top! The sustainable cork is naturally water resistant and protects your belongings from a sudden spring shower.
