As a child's parent, we always pay attention to the child's physical and mental health. The schoolbag, as a companion of the child on the academic road, will more or less affect the child's physical and mental health. Children of different ages have different criteria for choosing student school backpack. Next, I will divide it into two parts: material identification and structural design to explain what parents need to pay attention to when choosing schoolbags for their children. For this article, I will mainly concentrated on the material identification to parents to advise their choice for child`s bags. (One exception for the school bag is that some region has the fashion using leather school bags which values more and has much weight, which is not suitable for children from my perspective. So this article only suitable for some bag markets but not all school bag market)


1. Misunderstanding of bags

2. Material of School bags

3. Backing of school bags (important for child)


Material Classification (General) :

1. Misunderstanding of bags

Many parents think that there are a variety of school bags on the market, and school bags as a storage tool must be strong enough to meet most of the children's needs. From my personal point of view, I think this is a wrong idea, because the material determines the properties of each bag, such as weight and wear resistance. What's more, if the outdoor school bag is strong enough, it will not be a problem to use it for 2 to 3 years, but this may cause some problems, because some materials may affect the bag itself due to improper maintenance methods during usage . So based on these ideas, I will analyze the possible results from the perspective of materials.

 

2. Material of School bags

First of all, we have to understand what material the student schoolbags on the market are made of, and what standards are there. First of all, most of the materials in the student schoolbag market are made of nylon or polyester. Comparing with polyesters, nylon was comparatively durable and soft. So if your child want a soft backpack, then you could take a look of bags with nylon tag. while polyester bags has competitive price for bag market so it totally depends on your choice. Apart from some popular fabrics, canvas as another fabric options for backpack also plays important part in the traditional bag market, because canvas was made up of cotton, which has very soft touch and has no harmful ingredient to human body but you need take a look for the ingredient tags of your bags, it probably shows that it made up of 80% cotton + 20% polyester because most of canvas is less wearable than pure polyesters.

 

3. Backing of school bags (important for child)

As me mentioned before, three fabrics are mainly adopted to bag product in our everyday life. Polyester and nylon themselves does not harmful to human body but their backing, the material used on the back of the fabric, may affect children. If your country is in a European country, such as the United Kingdom, Germany, or the United States/Canada, which specifically require products that pass REACH or California 65-test to enter the market, then I can assured you that the products you buy in most supermarkets or shopping malls will not have this problem, but if you buy products through other channels, then I suggest you read the following chapters carefully.


In the adhesive part, we need to care about PVC backing products, because this material relies heavily on phthalates to bond the back of each fabric. And most of phthalates will have cancer risk in the case of long-term improper exposure. And another backing material is PU, this material itself will not have any effect on the human body so you could safely use any products with this kind of backing. (Canvas itself is thick enough when weaving while polyester and nylon are comparatively fragile so, in the most cases, PU will be frequently adopted as backing of canvas) For child, we strong encourage you to check the backing of those bags, because child has no awareness to properly use bags. They might bite, rub to increase their exposure to the phthalates then it will be a problem. You could know those information by checking the tag that whether the product pass the phthalates related test (such as REACH, Prop-65, etc).

Besides, try not to use 1 bag more than 3 years because the backing will change during your usage. For some backings, their usage will hugely decrease in their 3rd years. The oxidation will cause the backing of some backpacks to lose and start to have white tinge. If you find your school bag has many white tinge and start to create white powder then it means your bag has reach their  service life.
