Delving into the rich tapestry of backpack evolution
In 1877 Henry Miriam developed the first functional knapsacks for the U.S. military. In 1882 Camille Poirier improved the backpack with Duluth Pack. Then in 1922, Lyod F Nelson designed the first backpack for hiking with a rigid frame. In 1938 the first zippered backpack was created by Gerry Cunningham. In the 1940’s as more materials started becoming available bags started becoming stylish and functional.
During the 1950s the backpacks started getting updated in designs and becoming more modern. Printing on backpacks was started, and transparent backpacks arrived on the scene. As the years went by newer designs and styles came into existence.
In the late 2000s fashion backpacks became massively and pop culture, movies and shows played a big part in it.
Recently leather backpacks have made their comeback to fashion and varied options are available that can fit different tastes and styles.

Don’t use any harsh chemicals or even perfumes directly on the bag.
