Bag It Up: 10 Awesome Backpack Brands That Should Be On Your Wishlist

Gone are those days when backpacks used to remind us of the good old school days. It's 2020, and we can spot the likes of Gigi Hadid and Rihanna swapping their bags for trendy backpacks. We've tried and tested all the online brands mentioned below, and have curated this list for all your backpack needs. These 10 brands' backpacks are easy on the eyes, the back... and your pocket!

Anekaant

Whether you are hauling your lunch or your laptop, Anekaant's super spacious monochrome and jacquard bags will look good with every OOTD. We especially love the colourful tassel detailing on our black and white dot stripe backpack for those boho-cool vibes.

Anekaant's backpacks are priced at INR 999 and you can shop online here.

Huedee

Treat your inner hippie! Try these handmade bags by Huedee, made using tie-dye techniques. They are uber-cool, complete head-turners and very, very light on your shoulders. 

Fizza

Fizza's faux leather backpacks may look small, but they're mighty big when it comes to storing your essentials. We got the chevron stripes backpack from them and we think the teal and white chevron pocket against the dark tan base makes for a perfect college companion.

Maisha

Carry a million things in your tote? Maisha's backpacks are for you! These SUPER colourful backpacks are also super spacious and our editors have been obsessed with their jacquard multicoloured Aztec pattern backpack ever since the delivery came in.

Maisha's backpacks are priced at INR 1,899 and you can order online here.

Vivinkaa

From books, wallet to makeup and lunch, we stacked everything in our Vivinkaa backpack and there was still room for more. Their trendy pieces are made out of canvas and a sight to behold really.

Prices for Vivinkaa's backpacks start at INR 599 and you can shop online here.

Kleio

We had a tough time choosing between Kleio's drawstring, printed, and solid backpacks and we are sure you would too. What did we go for, finally? The beige printed drawstring one - best of both worlds.

Old Tree

Affordable, elegant, and amazingly comfortable, Old Tree's minimal backpacks are a delight. We got the black, concealed zipper one for ourselves and carrying our laptops has never been so easy.

Prices for Old Tree's backpacks start at INR 1,190 and you can buy online here.

Pinaken

Pinaken's backpacks will add a pop of colour to your outfits while you effortlessly carry all your basics along. One of our teammates has been carrying the balloon drawstring backpack for a while now and it never gets boring.

Pickpocket

They're sturdy. They're stylish. And they're affordable (no pick pocketing there). Though we would have loved some more options, we choose to go with Pickpocket's tassel tan backpack and it hasn't given us any trouble ever since.

Modern Myth

If you wish to be elevated to the status of a style icon, then Modern Myth's backpacks are the deal. (It happened to us, not lying). We loved the blue pottery vegan backpack so much that we sometimes think of carrying it inside another backpack, just to ward off the evil eye.

Prices for Modern Myth's backpacks start at INR 1,430 and you can shop online here.
