From micro-slings to dumpyard totes, from fun-filled colors to light and compact bags, in 2023, slings, backpacks, and handbags are having a ‘Wear it Your Way’ moment.
Heard of the iceman named Otzi? No? He lived 5,000 years ago, and the pouch that he wore is said to be the oldest known purse in recorded history. Otzi did not have to wake up every morning to make a decision. Big purse or little purse? Sling or a baguette? Tote or backpack? Clutch or a hobo? From Otzi’s era to now, the bag has metamorphosed from an ordinary pouch to an everyday essential. Not merely a fashion statement but a reflection of the bag holder’s personality.
“I’m thinking balls are to men what purses are to women. It’s just a little bag, but we’d feel naked in public without it.” – Sarah Jessica Parker

Backpacks: What we now call the backpack was originally known as a knapsack and invented for use by the US Army. In 1878, American Henry Merriam was issued a patent for his knapsack design, a precursor to the modern, fashionable, ubiquitous backpack. Today’s backpacks are perfect companions for college, hanging out with friends, going on day trips—basically, to be there for you on all your adventures.
