The Bags We Carry
In 1990, after 18 years of designing and making bags at night and on the weekends, Tom opened his first shop in Santa Cruz and founded TOM BIHN. Today there are almost 50 of us working here. To us, it’s a number that means a lot. That’s a lot of steady growth and hard work over the years. We’re proud of our designs. We’re proud of using the best materials we can find or have made for us. And we’re proud that we’re creating careers.
You share with us how you use your bags—in the Forums, on Facebook, via Insatgram and Twitter. It’s inspiring, validating, and a learning experience: you figure out ways to use bags and accessories that we, as the designers, didn’t even think of.
So, we thought we’d make a video that shows you how we use our bags. You can watch it below, and, as always: let us know what you think!
We’ve updated our Planet page with additional efforts: we’re operationally carbon neutral, members of 1% For The Planet, we offer a vegetarian company lunch, and over 80% of our materials are bluesign® and/or OEKO-TEX® certified.
