Anello Backpack ๐ŸŽ’ from Japan in Black and Camouflage

Konbanwa! ๐Ÿ™‚

When we went to Japan last time, I wasn't yet privy to Anello bags until my friend bought one also from her Japan trip. It's not only pretty, but very functional and affordable. Nice. Love it.

Com po evinho, anda-se caminho. Apparently, it is a Portuguese proverb, Com pรฃo e vinho, anda-se caminho, translated, it says "With bread and wine, to walk away!" Makes sense.
Thankfully, I have chinggus who supports my whims. So when Lala, who I went with Ji Chang Wook's fan meeting, went to Japan. She messaged me that she found Anello bags. I asked her to get me the basic black and camouflage. Yay! Daebak! Love you!

Anello Backpack AT-B0193A (P) bought in Japan for 4500 JPY. The black one is surprisingly made in Philippines (?), while the Camouflage is made in China. 
An Anello Bag made in the Philippines? Curious, I decided to check for authenticity. Except for the Made in Philippines, everything seems in order. Don't get me wrong, it's just that I haven't heard of it yet. Google search does not give me any Made in Philippines match. But they both have impeccable stitching and mostly matching hardwares.

Handle Button of the black back has 6 stars, which is the previous design. While the Camouflage features now the Carrot. Co.. For the lining, it seems it also matches the one on site, for black it has a olive green, while the camouflage has a black. Comes with three cards or labels (price tag, manual, and brand and social media label). Though the black one's model and price card has overlabel with AT-B0193P in the print, and and overlabel with AT-B0193A. It seems possible as the new barcode label in the Anello Authentication website shows a sticker or overlabel. 
With different Logo Versions, with the black one having bolder print than the camouflage, but from the site, both are valid logo versions. Both have the golden hardwares (zippers, zipper pulls), in yellow gold.  The tag inside the bag says the manufacturing place and dates. 
When traveling, next to a messenger bag, I like a backpack. It's very convenient, and keeps my hands free. In fact, it will be my foremost choice when traveling to safer cities. That, plus it's very Korean drama fashion, so I'm sold. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I own an Aldo leather back pack, which is also nice, but comes with some added weight. I do dream of owning a designer backback soon. (Prada! Ahem!) ๐Ÿ˜‚

Regardless, I feel reassured of the Japanese quality. So far, so good. I like the lightweight material. Plus the quality, I said it right, looks and feels impeccable. And the price? Winner. Next to shoes, a great bag takes you to good places. True to the proverb that Anello seeks inspiration from, "with bread and wine (literally you can fill it in with a whole lot of goodies), to walk away". On point. Cheers! ๐Ÿž๐Ÿท

P.S. Some features, I did not post. Brand secrets. Hah.

Hi,
The proverb is not well written which is sad...
The correct one is: "Com pรฃo evinho anda-se caminho".
"po" doesn't mean "bread" but instead it is closer to "dust" (correct way for dust would be "pรณ").

I believe they made this mistake because the machine that they used to print did not have the "รฃ".

Because it becomes closer to dust instead of bread, it makes the proverb that they tried to achieve completely wrong!

But cheers for the post!
