Rough sketch illustrating the reversible aspect of the bagpack. The side panels of the bag have been attached to the middle panel with the help of zippers and can be detached very easily. The semicircular panels are detached and reversed. The two white sides can then be reversed and put back with the middle panel. This time the golden side on the outside, giving the bag a more funky and chic look.
