About State Expand All Collapse All
After watching countless kids carrying their possessions in ripped trash bags, Scot and Jacq formed State - a company that promises to not only deliver much needed supplies, but to also provide youth with the tools to reach their fullest potential and better their communities. And to always have their backs.
Watch our story and hear how our founders built State with the goal of supporting American kids, communities and families in need.
State began as a partnership between husband and wife team, Scot and Jacq Tatelman. They created State as a for-profit company with a non-profit pedigree.
These Brooklyn-based social entrepreneurs have eyes trained for style but their hearts have always been with kids growing up in America's most underfunded, often overlooked neighborhoods.
In 2009, they founded Camp Power and its parent organization, Country Roads Foundation - a non-profit organization that has served thousands of New York City kids with life-changing camp experiences and year-round programming.
About Our Bags Expand All Collapse All
We pride ourselves on having a style for everyone, so our bags come in a wide range of sizes. Every product page has a “Size & Materials” section as you scroll down. We also created a “Size Guide” which is linked on every product page, so you can easily see which style and size is right for you!View Size Guide
We offer several bags that fit laptops! If you’re viewing a product page, you can find this information in the “What Fits” section as you scroll down the page.
If you’d like to search for a bag that fits a specific laptop size, use the “Features” filter on any product listing page and select either 13” or 15” laptop.
Many of our bags come with interior laptop sleeves built into the design. To browse them, use the “Features” filter on any product listing page and select “Padded Laptop Sleeve” in the dropdown. Our laptop sleeves will accommodate iPads of all sizes.
Click “Personalize” in the top navigation bar anywhere throughout the site, and you’ll reach the bag styles that can be personalized to your liking.
After you’ve selected your bag, click on “Personalize Your Bag” to get started. Our customization tool will popup and guide you through the options available for that specific product.
Make it yours by adding up to 6 letters of custom text (including a heart symbol) embroidered in a variety of colors and fonts. You can also add embroidered symbols, patches (to be sewn-on by you) and pins galore! Depending on size and surface area, bags will vary in terms of the personalization features available.
Please note that Personalization is provided at an additional cost, which you’ll see listed per feature. All personalized products are final sale.
Our bags are currently made in China under fair and ethical working conditions.
All of our products are made with non-toxic materials that comply with US testing regulations. Although not fully eco-friendly, it's our company mission to be sustainable by 2025.
Warranty Expand All Collapse All
We stand behind the quality of our bags and accessories with a 1-year warranty. This warranty is valid for one year, beginning on the date of purchase from State or one of our authorized retailers. Kindly note, if the product is purchased from an unauthorized or off-price retailer, this will automatically void the warranty.
If you discover a material or manufacturing defect, we will replace or repair the item at our discretion.
Warranty claims must be accompanied by photos of the bag or item and an acceptable proof of purchase. Acceptable proof of purchase can be your STATE order number, an online order confirmation from STATE or another online retailer, physical store receipt, or banking statement showing the transaction amount and date.
Our warranty does not cover misuse, neglect, accidents, abrasion, color transfer from other materials/garments, solvents, cleaning liquids, or any modification to a State item. Please note that general wear and tear, including but not limited to the reasonable breakdown of colors and materials over time, is not considered a material or manufacturing defect and is therefore not covered by our warranty.
