For a small startup that was first based out of a garage, San-Francisco bag company Timbuk2 has amassed a loyal customer base that’s impressive to say the least. Founded by a bike messenger (Rob Honeycutt), Timbuk2’s bestseller is the bicycle messenger bag that catapulted the brand to fame since its inception in 1989. With a vision to create bags that last a lifetime, Timbuk2’s bags are crafted to withstand the busy everyday commute in an urban setting.
Apart from messenger bags, it also offers backpacks, computer sleeves and tote bags in its extensive product list. What makes its bags stand out is how convenient it is as a daily everyday must-have. You can find bottle opener on a strap, compartments tailor made for your gadgets alongside pockets designed to store power banks.
One thing that caught our eyes recently upon a trip to NYC is its custom factory within a store. Not a new novelty by the brand, Timbuk2 offers custom-made options for those who prefer a unique, standalone design. You can personalise almost every part that makes up your bag, from the colours of the body and flap to the logo and binding hue.
The beauty about ordering a customised bag from Timbuk2 is that it will be sewn and made directly in its factory located in. Sneak a peek at the “Customiser” section on its website to find out the steps on how you can personalise your own bag.
If you’re reading this right now, you’re in luck as the brand is offering 30% off on custom bags. Prices begin at USD69 for the Custom Tuck Backpack and Mini Custom Prospect Backpack, and go up to USD104 for the Custom Weekender Duffel—a steal compared to its original price tag of USD149!
Below, check out how Timbuk2’s Custom Messenger Bag is crafted from scratch in its headquarters:
