Why Totem

There’s no better bag

Totem bags are unique. From bottom to buckle, they’re ergonomically designed.

We all know that investing in a quality pair of good shoes always pays off: in terms of durability, comfort, support, protection, and looks. It’s the same when it comes to a bag.

A Totem will not only last (and last), it will reward you every time you put it on. Stand tall. Look good. Carry the load.

Growing into better backs

Whatever their age, anyone carrying a sub-standard bag will be squirming and straining under the weight. A big concern is the ongoing pressure on the spine and neck (often resulting in muscle strain and headaches which can cause an inability to concentrate). A heavy bag with no built in support forces a person to compensate by rounding their back, thrusting their shoulders forward, contracting their chest muscles and poking their head forward. It’s not a good look.

Totem, then, offers kids a real health advantage. Our bags are made to be a support – preventing back problems, protecting posture, and reducing the load by up to 20%

Supportive

An aluminium frame provides the core structure of our bags, reducing the load by up to 20%.

Perfect that posture.
