The construction and detailing of this backpack is truly something to behold. The Randoseru bag is most commonly used in Japan by elementary schoolchildren. Traditionally it is given to a child upon beginning their first year of school, whereupon the child uses the same bag until grade 6. However, a bag this well made could easily last a lifetime. And then another.
