The story behind this product began in the rural farmlands of Cambodia where a woman decided to take action in her community. She noticed that pesticides and solid waste used for the growing & shipping of cement, fish feed and other products was piling up and not being disposed of properly. The woman, Nyla, began purchasing the discarded materials and then employed local families to wash, dry and sew the materials into durable, water-resistant and colorful tote bags. She became inspired to create a company that employs artisans in Cambodia who have been displaced from their farmlands or affected by landmines or polio.
I've had the backpack for over 2 months and I love it! It fits all of my notebooks and my laptop for school as well as my lunch (it's a tight fit). There are a lot of pockets to separate your things with. The images/words are starting to rub off where my back goes but that is to be expected because of the material. A hole started to rip into the bag from pulling on the strap too much since my backpack is always heavy but it was easily fixable. Seems durable besides that point.
