About Us

We’ve always thought of field trips as the best part of school: away from the routine, away from the expected, you’re somewhere new to you, out in the world, learning.

We’re grown ups now, and we get that same excitedly nervous feeling when we’re about to go on a trip to Europe or a spontaneous road trip. It’s there when we’re working on a new design, talking to a new and interesting person, thinking of how to write this feeling that we’re thinking, or realizing just how big of a crazy adventure it is having a small business and making our own designs in our own U.S.A. factory. This is our way of sharing that with you and you us; if you’d like to submit an essay, photo series, or be interviewed for Field Trips and Design, email us.

TB Crew

We're the TOM BIHN crew: we design bags, make bags, ship bags, and answer questions about bags. Oh, and we collaborate on blog posts, too.

News Briefs

The Pre-Order window for The Truck, Small + Large Zip-Top Shop Bags and Original Small Shop Bag has closed. Our factory will now begin making the pre-ordered bags. All but the Original Small Shop Bag (due to low numbers ordered) will be made available for pre-order once again in September.

We don’t have any current plans to make future production runs of The Hero’s Journey or Moveable Feast. You can sign up on their pages to be notified if/when we make more.

Three of our most popular briefcases are back in-stock: the Pilot, Cadet, and Daylight Briefcase.
