About This Project

My goal was to design a carrier system that fits like a shirt to the body, is easy to adjust, and doesn’t have loose, unnecessary straps. Therefore, it is made of a neoprene piece and its adjustability is controlled by two conductor clasps. In conventional children’s school bags, hip and chest straps are often not used. That’s why Minro has a strap that can be adjusted by velcro fastening. The separate snack pocket is simply opened with a magnetic closure. It is isolated from the rest of the storage space and is easy to clean. On the side of the school bag are hidden pockets. These can be pushed out as required and offer space for water bottles or a folding umbrella. The zipper provides an easy access to the schoolbooks and the inside carry handle is perfect for hanging at the school desk.
