Our ergonomic design relieves the child’s back and promotes an upright posture. We combine the ergonomic system with the functions a schoolbag has to offer.
Recycling methods and climate protection have been an integral part of our production for 10 years. We want to have a positive impact on the future that belongs to our children.
Tastes change, but so can the ergobag with you! With interchangeable Kletties and color surfaces, it is easy to switch between favorite patterns and colors without the need for a new backpack.
All school backpacks are equipped with reflective material. Optionally, fluorescent zip surfaces in four bright colors can be attached, which provide additional safety in road traffic.
Environmental protection is essential to us, which is why we use recycled PET-bottles to manufacture our fabrics found in every backpack—giving plastic waste a new purpose.
With bluesign®, we have found an independent and uncompromising partner who audits entire retail chains for resource conservation and the absence of harmful chemicals. Next Step: We are switching the entire collection to a PFC-free (per- and polyfluorinated chemicals) impregnation.
As an independent organization, the Fair Wear Foundation examines the working conditions and has once again awarded us with the best possible »leader status« that only a few companies achieve.

ergobag – The alternative to a traditional School Bag
The cologne producer of innovative school backpacks combines the ergonomic principles of innovative trekking backpacks with everything required for a school bag. The backpacks distribute the weight from the shoulders to the stable pelvic area and therefore are easy to carry. Thanks to the adjustable Carry System the backpacks grow along with the children. But this is not the only thing that differenciates the school backpacks from a normal school bag: our products are made of 100% PET reclyced fabrics to save the resources of our earth. Thanks to the Kletties the backpacks for kindergarten and primary school can be customized individually. In our view, education, health and a sustainable way of dealing with resources are the cornerstones for a happy future. Our daily activities are centered around the goal of taking the strain off the backs of small, medium and large people alike - so that they can face every day with courage and a smile and make the most of their own unique potential. In our school backpacks we combine ergonomic principles with customizability and, at the same time, have created a product that is friendly to the environment. This idea, our concept and the design have been widely recognized, among other with the red dot design award 2011 and 2013, as a prizewinner in the competition "365 landmarks in the land of ideas" and in the business plan competition enable2start. In 2012, we also made it to the final of the German Start-up Prize. ergobag was founded in February 2010 by four friends and is based in Cologne, Germany. And this is where we lovingly design and develop all of our products. The backpacks ergolino and ergolino+ are suitable for kindergarten, the ergobag pack and ergobag prime are suitable for primary and the satch and satch+ are suitable for secondary school. You can find our backpacks in more than 1500 shops and more than 20 countries worldwide.
