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.
The Union is the brand’s premium classic backpack finished with high-end details. It features a large main storage compartment with padded laptop pocket, a second compartment with multiple supply organizers, key clip and iPad pocket, a front stash pocket, leather-bound side pockets and heavy gauge antique brass zippers. It is finished with a signature STATE rivet in black.
