Here is our story.
Our mission: to create a durable, and as far as we can, a environmentally friendly and high quality backpacks at a really good price.
Normally a backpack with this quality will cost you around $240. We offer it to you for $130 and the best thing about it all, is that we do it with social and environmentally responsibility.
How do we do it?
Well, first of all we skipped the middle man, you buy directly from us, therefore we can hold higher production costs, buy better environmentally friendly materials as we go on, have better control when it come to the production environment and also keep the quality high.
We love backpacks but they are not perfect.
We want the backpack to be good looking, sustainable, practical, lightweight and of course affordable. The range of backpacks offered on the market today are divided into three categories: merchandise, outdoor/sports, and luxury brands. Luxury and outdoor brands are often good quality and therefore they last long but many of these products are not made with environmentally sustainablematerials when it comes to leather, coating and other details.
So what have we been doing?
Design We spent a lot of time on researching the market to find out what people think could be better when it comes to todays backpacks. One of our conclusions was that backpacks are used daily and need to be designed thereafter. With this in mind we created Baccypacks and it's features.
Olive wax coating We have spent hours and hours searching for the right environmentally friendly wax coating. We wanted the coating to give the same nice feeling as on old english oil raincoats but at the same time, it needed to be good for the environment. What we have is Olive wax!.
Leather Our leather comes from Swedens oldest and finest leather tanneries. Tärnsjö garveri (Tansjö tannery) is a 140 year old family business. They make the worlds finest premium, vegetable tanned leather using the same process as their forefathers. It is a time consuming process, but you can't achieve more beautiful results and higher quality then this, and hey! it's also better for the environment.
No more plastic buckles Plastic is easily worn and breaks over time, therefor we believe that its better to use metal buckles and rivets, that last longer and also we think they look nicer too.
What more can we do? Well, we are working on to switching from the cotton we use, to organic cotton. But we haven't find the right supplier yet, but we're still looking and are hoping to find att suitable fit in the near future. We've been working on this backpack for the past 4 years and spent hundreds and hundreds of hours perfecting it. We've made a total of 20 different prototypes until we were completely satisfied with the result.
We have dedicated ourselves to refining and perfecting the backpack to be the best street backpack on the market today. We have already lined up a new manufacturer, specialized in manufacturing backpacks with quality and durability in mind.
Social and ethical responsibility.
We've created our backpacks with social and ethical responsibility in mind, but we decided that we wanted to do even more. We want to help people in need in some way. Our way to do so, is to give 5% of the profit of each sold backpack to charity when the company is started. We also wanted to make it visible for you, therefore we are going to have a ticking clock on our website that rises every time someone buys a backpack. We also wanted to give you the opportunity to help us decide which charity to donate to, therefore at the end of every year you will be able to vote on your favorite charity on our website.

Thank you so much for helping me out!
Risks and challenges
As with any production of goods, there are many risks when producing products that intermix functionality, design, and style. At Baccy we work very closely with the factory and and the companies that are involved in the process and make sure that everything gets done with high quality and on time.
Ofcourse, there are some things we can’t always control - for example: There could be problem with the fabric being dyed and the color is a few shades off or maybe a whole lot of zipper is backordered. At Baccy we are doing the best to avoid these risks by building in some “buffer” time to our timeline.
If we don’t succeed with the campaign, we will start anyway, but in a smaller batch and not so many colors.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
