Hola ! We are Melissa and Romain.We want the world to take part in the majesty, the quality and the soul of Peru.


We met at university and ever since we’ve shared two passions : travel and entrepreneurship. 

We decided to embark on an epic journey to discover all of Peru together. We crossed all the Costa, Sierra and Selva regions. After this lifechanging roadtrip, we started a blog to share our experience with future travellers. But it wasn’t enough. We wanted to do more. Machitos Backpacks were born.

Indeed, handcrafted backpacks were a perfect expression of our mutual passions as they embody adventure, discovery and wonder. 

Thanks to our mix of cultures, we envisioned a backpack that would revisit traditional Peruvian designs with a fresh urban touch.

Machitos works with local artisans

On our last trip we met Josefina and Faustino from Cusco, two leather workers with over 15 years of experience.

With our designs and their expertise, we were able to produce our first prototypes.
