About this project

Hi there. I'm launching a line of bicycle bags geared toward fashion-savvy urban commuters and leisure riders. Constructed out of ethically sourced sustainable materials such as organic cotton and humane leather, and crafted under fair labor conditions, these bags will uphold three core ideas essential to sustainable practice: good form, good function, and fair values.

For many city dwellers, bicycles are a main source of transportation, from the subway, to the market, to the park....so you may often end up carrying a lot of things while riding. Unfortunately for people there aren't many options aside from messenger bags and sporty nylon models.

That's why I'm raising money — so I can kickstart the line into production in time for the spring season! Funds raised will pay for prototyping, materials, and labor. Any funding in excess of the original goal will be used to develop the branding, promotion, and online store as well as support exposure to local markets in bike-friendly communities like New York, Portland, Amsterdam, and Tokyo.

How you can help. Pledge now and I promise to bring you a great product that promotes a more sustainable lifestyle. I believe bikes are the best way for getting around a city. They're nimble, they need no fuel, and they keep us healthy, so why not outfit them with a handsome accessory that looks awesome on and off your bike. All funders will be given special thanks on the website and invitation to the launch party!

What makes these bags special?
They look good.
They're ethically sourced.
They're made to last.
