Back to school season is officially here. Now that your beach days are behind you and your vacation email responder is off, it’s time to get a backpack that wins you best-dressed title in the yearbook while you’re hitting the books.
The Rodica is designed specifically to keep its shape and hold your everyday essentials along with a 15-inch laptop, a tablet, a notebook or planner and a water bottle.
Whether you’re running to class or to meetings, the Rodica marries style, functionality and convenience. It’s practical for students and sophisticated for professionals. The Rodica wears well through all seasons of life.
Style 3 Different Ways
Best part? Style the bag to fit your lifestyle. The Rodica converts into a backpack, a crossbody or a handbag with a simple twist of the strap.

Our Customers Love It
“If you’re considering the Rodica or really any Sapahn bag, just go for it! I originally wanted a stylish yet functional bag for a huge and heavy work laptop which is how I found Rodica. The Rodica has been my daily bag ever since it arrived when I’m usually a notorious bag switcher.
It’s traveled with me internationally, nationally, lugged my day-to-day items, and has faced all sorts of strange weather including intense summer downpours. This bag is so beautiful AND immensely well made. I am still noticing little details that really make this bag something special on top of the amazing company mission.
Converting the strap into its different formations takes practice but it constantly surprises and impresses the people I’m with (especially me!)”
Inspiration Behind The Bag
All of our ethical leather handbags are named after inspiring women in our lives. The Rodica was named after a very special woman in our founder’s life. Brooke describes the impact that Rodica had in her life:
“My senior year in high school took place in Ramnicu Valcea, Romania as a foreign exchange student with the Rotary Club, and Rodica was my host mom. She was so warm-hearted and, along with her husband Cornel, she made my experience so unforgettable.
Being away from home at 17 for a year is tough, but she loved on me. Each night we would sit around the kitchen table and laugh, tell stories, look at photo albums of their travels throughout Europe which all was such a dream to me.
The next day they were on the phone to make this dream become a reality. Next month I was on an adventure from Bucharest to Greece for two weeks. This bag would have been perfect for this adventure.”
