Backpacks. I’ve almost always carried one. As a kid and right through adulthood, living in Manhattan, there was always a pack on my back. They’re so convenient! But, they can also look very BOOOOOORING!!!! Why do that to your kid when we live in the internet world of beautiful handmade goods? After all, your kid is special, like a snowflake, why shouldn’t his or her backpack be?
With that in mind, I’ve put together this list of 7 handmade backpacks that will make your kid look like Versace at a homeless shelter. (By comparison -of course- and no, he or she shouldn’t tell the other kids that. This is just between us.)
So, let us begin. There’s this awesome backpack that’s also a lunch box — (Though, maybe skip sending your kid off to school with beer…just saying. Not a good start.)
