The dream of flight started a very long time ago. Many people have wondered what it’s like to have wings, but people are not angels or birds. So do you simply strap on a pair of fake wings and go to work? You’d seem a little odd wouldn’t you? But what if you had a pair of wings that was also a stylish backpack? Now you can thanks to Volha Kotova.
The Belarus-based artist has crafted backpacks that look like a pair of wings have sprouted from the wearer’s back. This fanciful accessory will transform anyone sporting it from a mere mortal into a winged hero. But don’t be fooled, this is a fully functional backpack.
Made of durable felted wool, the backpack has a zipper and lining with pockets inside. The textured, scalloped pieces have an incredible volume and visual weight. And the tiered technique only adds to their realistic quality. Available in different colour schemes, each bag is sold through Kotova’s Etsy shop, Orange Cat.
