7 Back-to-School Handmade Backpacks for Your Unique Kid

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?
