The team at recently interviewed STATE, a company that offers a wide range of fashionable backpacks and bags for all ages. For each bag they sell, they donate a backpack to an American student in need.

Just recently, STATE launched a new line of limited edition Star Wars inspired backpacks that feature Darth Vader and his stormtroopers as well as C-3PO and R2-D2.

We design all our bags with the intention of combining fashion, sophistication, and fun. We love to make the end user smile, be proud of their bag, and designing Star Wars was no exception to that. We had a great time conceptualizing these bags and how STATE would ultimately do Star Wars. First, we came up with the idea of creating each collection in friendships, since that’s such a huge part of both of our brands.
