The Bag Collab We’ve Been Waiting For: STATE x T H E M E
Ten-year-old T H E M E Founder, Ariella Maizner, has blown our minds yet again with her collaboration with STATE Bags. With both brands being known for their original prints, durable materials and personal touches, we could not be more thrilled about their latest backpack and duffle designs.
When Ariella Maizner founded the clothing company, T H E M E, we knew she liked to dream big and would change the game of apparel forever. With a seemingly endless amount of energy and creativity, it came as no surprise when she announced that she was teaming up with our all-time favorite, STATE Bags to create a backpack and duffle bag that any kid would adore.
Exclusively available at The Tot and produced in a limited quantity, the T H E M E x STATE bag collab is a celebration of the future of female entrepreneurship. With both contributors having a firm understanding of what kids want and need from their school gear, they created an original T H E M E tie-dye print for STATE’s signature Kane Backpack and Felix Duffle Bag. Packed full (no pun intended) of features like a laptop pocket, inner and outer zippers, easy to wipe down materials and a drink bottle holder and adjustable straps, the backpack is a must-have for school and field trips, while the duffle will make weekend adventures a breeze.
While we love STATE Bags because their backpacks, lunchboxes and school accessories truly stand the test of time and are insanely stylish, we also love that for every STATE bag sold, the company always finds a way to give back to American children. From funding projects to partnering with charities to donating over 30,000 backpacks, STATE Bags Founders, Jacqueline and Scot Tatelman, have always done such a great job of making giving back such a huge part of their mission.
