Satchel and backpack
Which satchel is the right one for my child? This question inevitably arises with all parents before the start of school. For the children the curiosity about their new satchel or school backpack is just as great as about the school bag. In the almost unmanageable mass of models and designs that are available, it can be difficult to find the right satchel. The Waldorfshop offer is based on the basic ideas of Waldorf education as well as on the current state of knowledge regarding comfort and sustainability. On this basis we have designed the offer of in our online shop for you. The school satchel or school backpack should be a practical companion for your child. Therefore it must be light in weight, ergonomically shaped and practical to handle. It must offer space for all materials for teaching and meet the highest quality standards. In addition to these criteria, it is important to us to convey an aesthetic feeling to the children by using natural materials, colours and motifs that do not overwhelm the senses. In our online shop, we offer leather satchels and school backpacks for younger and older pupils and deliberately avoid classic role assignments in boys and girls in terms of colour and motifs.
With the change from the 1st year seven to the 2nd year seven also the change from the Waldorf kindergarten to the Waldorf School is pending. This is an important and decisive step for children and parents. In the book "This is Waldorf School" by Wolfgang Held or in more detail in "The Education of the Child" by Rudolf Steiner, basic anthroposophical and Waldorf ideas can be read. One Waldorf educational aspect is the great importance attached to the child's environment. The child's environment has an immediate effect. For this reason, we do not use colours that overflow with stimuli in our satchel models and prefer materials that offer a rich variety of experiences and sensory perception. We attach great importance to a cooperation with manufacturers who work as sustainable and environmentally conscious as possible.
