Technical schoolbags

Technical schoolbags

A Caramel & cie binder is very technical

Beyond the aesthetic side, a Caramel & cie schoolbag is above all a technical product that requires a particular know-how.

All our schoolbags and backpacks are designed to be resistant and solid:

Quality fabrics

We use high quality fabrics, 900D (which corresponds to the weight in grams of the fabric thread for a 9 meters length). This is an important indicator for choosing the right schoolbag for your child, as the denier measures the thickness of the fabric and therefore its strength.

The higher the denier, the more resistant the schoolbag will be to shocks and wear. It will have a better chance of lasting over time.

For even more rigidity and to avoid snags, the bottom of the bag is lined in imitation leather. The colors of all our fabrics are created exclusively for Caramel & Cie, so you will not find a color in another manufacturer and all our prints have a specific coating to improve their resistance.

100% of the 2022 collection is made with 80% recycled polyester, the goal is to reach 100% in the near future.

Reinforced seams

All our bags and satchels have reinforced seams at the weakest points and at all points of wear.

Padded and resistant handle

A plastic plate is located underneath the handle, and the riveted and stitched nylon rando straps provide strength. The imitation leather provides support and its velvety side allows a pleasant grip.

Rigid interior

The foam and plastic divider inside the binder keeps it rigid and prevents it from folding and getting damaged.

Durable clasps

Our clasps, designed and manufactured especially for Caramel et cie, are made in one piece to be stronger, more resistant and easier to open.


The outer fabrics of our bags and satchels are water repellent and the interior is waterproof. 

Comfort is one of the essential points, Caramel & Cie pays attention to the following points:

Back of the schoolbag

The padding is essential for the comfort of our children. That's why the back of our schoolbags and bags are padded with an anti-perspirant honeycomb material designed to rest on the child's lower back and relieve his shoulders. The contact mesh is soft to the touch, comfortable and breathable for a pleasant feel.

 Adjustable straps

Our adjustable straps are also fleeced and covered with a wide mesh anti-perspirant fabric with a large return to prevent chafing. Their S-shape and slope allow them to fit comfortably on children's shoulders and to follow the shape of the body. They act as a suspension system that allows the bag to move better with the body's movements.


Our school bags (large and medium size) have two compartments to balance the weight of the bag and provide stability. Heavy books should be stored closer to the back.

Sternum Strap

The harness strap goes over the chest to provide a secure fit for the schoolbag at the back.

 Schoolbag weight

Durable and lightweight binders. In our quest for constant improvement, the shape of our schoolbags and backpacks is redesigned every year to make them lighter.

At Caramel & cie, a kindergarten schoolbag weighs 450g with all its reinforcements, padding, rivets and other metal fasteners.

A primary school bag weighs between 800 and 950g, because of its size of course (school books and notebooks must all fit!) and especially because they are even more reinforced.

Not forgetting the security, enriched each year with new ideas:

Reflective strips

For safety, some of our school bags have reflective strips on the back of the bag and on the shoulder straps so that they can be seen at nightfall when our children leave the school.

 Practical key ring

In the inside pocket, a small safety device to avoid losing your keys and always know where they are!

Labeled binders

In addition, we make our schoolbags pass all the European certifications and standards (REACH standards) on the respect of the environment and the health of the child.

We also add non-mandatory strength tests because a schoolbag must be able to last at least 2 school years even though it is used every day, or should I say abused every day.

Our schoolbags are guaranteed for 2 years.
