Saathi is a multi-purpose school bag that doubles as a reading and writing surface for students in the rural areas of India. Light in weight, the Saathi hangs over the shoulder when carried and forms a stable desk when opened. Placed on the floor, the desk’s adjustable height allows the student to maintain a healthy spine position while writing. The bag’s triangular side profile also provides plenty of space for the student’s materials, both when carried and when in use. Affordable, weatherproof and user-friendly, Saathi creates a healthy, mobile space for learning.
