Leading brands or eco-friendly backpacks?
When I started college I needed a bag, upon doing a quick google search for the word backpack, I quickly discovered that the top results showed bags that I felt not only were not the right style for me but were also very expensive ranging from £39 - £69.
After looking around many times, I eventually came across one that I liked, it was an Indian backpack that was made in Nepal by hand using fabrics, delicately creating each unique item, not something that is mass-produced by leading manufacturers from a factory.
When I finished college and created my own company, I looked at my old bag and thought wow, we could find a backpacks supplier and start our own range that was much cheaper - from £14.99, with free-post, suitable for kids, men and women, offering better value to our customers and without the use of plastic, we had our mission in mind.
What type of Indian bag do we sell?
We sell many types including those that are suitable for school lunches, for a laptop, travelling, going shopping, riding a motorcycle, crossbody, over the shoulder, duffel, and others all in assorted colours.
