I find this quite interesting-- DHL has partnered with designer Zac Posen, who has created a limited edition "Tote For Teachers" tote bag. DHL will be donating 100% of the proceeds to Teacher Counts, a non-profit organization who is dedicated to providing a permanent culture of teacher appreciation.
While I like what this partnership stands for, I'm just wondering if any teachers will be able to purchase this bag for themselves. Why create a bag with inspiration for its design being drawn from a teacher and slap a $400 price tag on it so they won't be able to purchase one for themselves? The bag offers the functionality that would appeal to a teacher-- it's made of natural Italian leather and lined in cotton twill, and its expandable interior allows room for all the papers and supplies that teachers tend to carry. This bag is a teaser! Sometimes when you charge less, you end up selling more!
