My name is Cameron and I'm the one with the blue shirt on the left. According to my school, I had a horrible fever the day that picture was taken (Jon and I had a bad tendency of getting sick whenever we needed to review another bag at the factory). Some youtube tutorials on sewing, an engineering background from competitive robotics, and 13 prototypes later, Prova was born.
It all started when we discovered that almost every company making high school or college backpacks was founded as something completely non-school related, by people who haven't been on a campus for over a decade. School has changed a lot in 30 years, perhaps its time for bags to follow suit.

If you've made it this far down the page, thank you. We've dedicated a lot of our time and effort to make this product and we hope it shows. I wish that you enjoy our bags as much as we've enjoyed making them.
Risks and challenges
One of our biggest challenges was setting up our supply chain to be as reliable as possible. Dozens of bags have already been manufactured, reviewed, and shipped to ensure that all of the kinks have been resolved before we launch. We are ready for production right now with an established factory that we have strong connections with.
Customs - We have spent countless days researching and talking to experts about how to best get our bag to your country. With that said, it wouldn't be genuine if we claimed to know everything. Either way, we will work as hard as possible to minimize delays.
Production Scaling - We can't predict how many bags will be ordered by the end of the campaign, however, we are prepared to deal with any order size. If we are lucky enough to pass our goal, we have already confirmed with our suppliers and manufacturers that the scaling process will be smooth.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
