Backpack • Plumeria • Denim Collection
Jana Lam hand-printed Backpacks are made with love and aloha at the Jana Lam Studio in the Kaka’ako neighborhood of Honolulu, Hawaii.
Backpacks are simply the best; functional, sporty, and so much fun. Our amazing Erin created the pattern for these; the Momma and the Mini, and I have to say, they are the perfect size and shape, and you will want to carry it everywhere. You can put your essentials in the front pocket and the heavier load in the main compartment. They’re not just for school or camping anymore, these backpacks are practically a practical fashion staple!

When we initially introduced our Plumeria print a little over a year ago we did it in a delightful ombré that we absolutely couldn’t live without. But during the coloring sampling process Kellie made a couple other color combos that were also just too good to resist. So we’ve been keeping quiet and holding these two close for quite some time. Golden Mango and Hot Pink Pitaya are the stupendous super summery concoctions of the Jana Lam catalog. Photos don’t do it justice, and my love is overflowing.
All Jana Lam Handmade in Hawaii textiles are silk-screened by hand on cotton fabrics with water-based inks. This piece is made from a 100% cotton slub weave fabric, and is reinforced with heavyweight interfacing to make the fabric sturdy and hold its shape.
The #janalamfam recommends spot cleaning when smaller spots show up. We usually use Shout Wipes for that, but Jana has used tide pens in the past. Make sure if there is a white top print to be a little more gentle on rubbing spots out. Since the ink sits on top of the fabric a bit more than other colors, there is a chance of the ink rubbing off and getting on other parts of the fabric.
But, you can put your Jana Lam's in the wash. We usually use a hand wash cycle and lay flat to dry. After it's dried, it is always good to give it a little bit of an iron. We use 100% cotton fabric, so it may shrink in the dryer, but will definitely stand up to ironing
