A Father In Cambodia Wove A Backpack For His Son To Save Money

The Design

The backpack was fully functional with a front flap, buckle, and two straps for carrying properly. Photos show the backpack was sturdy enough to hold several school books, and it seems to be a decent size. The straps themselves were also adjustable so that NY Keng can continue to use it as he grows.

All it took was some leftover raffia string, a backpack buckle, and two straps, all of which Keng’s father had already.
