When Oliver Shuttlesworth took a trip to Central America, he witnessed the debilitating effects of extreme poverty on children in those areas. He was inspired to find a sustainable solution that would equip children in the developing world with the tools they need to build a brighter future for themselves and their communities. Oliver’s solution was to found ESPEROS—a company that sells quality backpacks and other bags to provide education opportunities. Proudly designed in Austin, TX, ESPEROS bags offer a unique blend of style, function, and durability at an affordable price. They use high-quality materials, adhere to ethical workplace standards, and pay workers comfortable, living wages. The bags are made with clean canvas, and they are waterproof, stain-resistant, and machine washable. ESPEROS donates 10% of each sale to help fund a year of education for a child in a developing country. When you make your purchase from ESPEROS, you do more than simply buy a bag...you carry hope.
