School bags refer to the bags that are generally used by students to transport school supplies, including books, stationery, and lunch.

The majority of these bags are made from synthetic materials, such as nylon, polyester, or canvas. They have reinforced straps and multiple compartments for organization. In addition to providing students with a convenient and safe way to carry their school supplies, school bags protect fragile items, such as laptops and tablets, and are typically resistant to harsh weather conditions.

Some of the advantages of school bags include convenience, easy organization of study materials, and expressing individual style and personality.
