STATE is a Brooklyn-based company that is all about the one accessory that defines urban life: the backpack. For busy, style-savvy city dwellers, it’s a lifestyle declaration of being on the move and ready to take on whatever the day has in store. And for kids, it’s a necessity that takes them from home to school each day, carrying everything they need to thrive. STATE is the first brand to offer the high style and quality customers want while supporting kids growing up in America’s most under-funded, volatile neighborhoods. STATE – one of the first companies in New York to achieve benefit corporation status – is upping the ante on the “buy one, give one” model with a re-imagined, long-term approach.

  • Community

    Because of the founder's deep background in serving kids in underfunded neighborhoods here in the US, our committment is in our own backyard. STATE is rolling out its GiveBackPack program across the US, but has heavily focused on turbulent neighborhoods in Brooklyn, New York - where the company began and is still based.

  • Social

    For each bag sold, STATE hand-delivers one to a child living living in an at-risk neighborhood here in the US through its innovative GiveBackPack program. Going beyond simply a material donation, STATE executes 60 minute motivational rallies, led by role-model figures in the STATE PackMen. Watch how STATE is building upon the buy one give one model and making a local, long-term impact:

  • Employees Culture

    One ritual that new hires partake in is reciting how they are going to live by STATE's 6 core 14 seconds (just enough time to fit it into an Instagram video)!
