When Brooklynites Jacqueline and Scot Tatelman started a not-for-profit summer camp for underprivileged kids almost a decade ago, they were shocked to see so many kids show up with their belongings in trash bags. It inspired them to create STATE, a collection of backpacks and school accessories with a strong emphasis on giving back. For every STATE bag sold, one is donated to a child in need (it’s also packed full of school essentials to boot). So far, the pair have delivered over 30,000 backpacks to kids across America.
A signature backpack for the kids, or the kid at heart, The Color Block’s body features bright and fun color block design with contrast shoulder straps. The main compartment fits a standard school size folder, and is equipped with organizational zip pockets, slip pockets, pen holders and is perfect for the Kindergartner or elementary student in your life.
