"For those of you familiar with my story and our blogs, you already know how close I am with my two sisters, Teresa being the youngest.  Our childhood didn’t always leave us with feelings of security, stability and safety, but we always knew we had each other.  Today Teresa strives to provide these basic needs to many children through her position as a Social Worker.  She continues to be selfless, loving and a pillar of strength to all those around her. "  ~ Jennifer, Founder of MARNIE & MICHAEL: 

We're a mental health give-back social entity.  15% of our profits from our handmade, exclusive leather bags and accessories go towards our mental health initiative

THE TERESA CONVERTIBLE BACKPACK is 3 bags in one! Wear it as a small backpack, a small cross-body, or as a small over-the-shoulder handbag.  Simply unclip the strap and change positions to easily switch from one to the other!  The smaller main compartment is big enough for your day-to-day essentials like your wallet, phone, keys, and a book or small tablet, but without the bulkiness of a larger bag – and all hands-free.

For the 2022 LINE, we are working with Laredo leather sides. These 3-4 oz sides are full of character and are ideal for achieving an aged, rustic look.  Note: These sides may contain natural characteristics like marks or brands.  


  • Unlined, flat-back main compartment with darted edging detail:  7” wide x 10” long x 2” deep
  • NEW*** Black Nylon strap with slider for easy adjustment from 30” – 53”

**NOTEProducts are no longer hand stamped with logo.  We now have a fabric label sewn into the seam.

The story behind the backpack: 
"With our 2022 LINE, we intentionally set out to design smaller pieces for everyday use. Our customers love our CROSSBODY BAG but some wanted a smaller option.  As well, we were attracted to the idea of having one bag with many ways you could wear it.  People have been carrying things on their back since the dawn of time!  But the modern version of the backpack came in the 1940s with the first backpack with a zipper.  It was primarily used for hiking, camping and alpine climbing.  During the 60s and 70s, students started using them, so designs and materials changed too.  Now with the digital time we live in, they are changing again to smaller, sleeker bags.”
