Swiss Army Monkey Backpack

Curated Mantiques Collection


This iconic Swiss Backpack is commonly called 'Affe' which means Monkey in German. This reference is to its furry appearance. The back is made from pony hide and was most commonly used by medical units of the Swiss Army. It features a craftsmanship of days long gone by. There is host of compartments and sleeves, ingeniously closed with leather 'beads', straps and flaps. The  pack is dated 1944 and is in really, really good condition. We like to collect these bags as they are both amazingly good looking, but also packed with skills and quality. 


  • Rare piece dated 1944
